I love East Ham for it's open green spaces and cockney locals!
I love East Ham because it has beautiful houses, tree-lined streets and great schools. Also it has a diverse community, and loads of green spaces.
I love this multicultural area where everyone comes from a different country or background. I love that the rent is more affordable than other areas. And I love how friendly the shop keepers are on the high street, very pleasant living experience.
