Where do Tower Hamlets and surrounding areas locals go?

Tredegar Square

Beautiful green space in zone 2.

Victoria Park

Skateboarding through Victoria Park is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Possibly heading to Broadway Market after to find coffee and more than likely after a few skateboard tricks, a pharmacy.

Pavilion Café

A great place to grab a coffee, freshly prepared snacks or cake, while overlooking one of Victoria Park's lakes.

York Hall Leisure Centre

Famous gym, spa and boxing venue!

The Palm Tree

A local drinking institution that retains its traditional decor - a proper East End boozer with plenty of character in Millennium Park.

Café Health

A lovely little Caribbean restaurant on Mare Street in East London. They offer the best jerk chicken along with other Caribbean dishes.

The ArcelorMittal Orbit

Britain's largest piece of art, you can buy tickets to go up and view London from the top, as well as abseil down and hire it out for private events.

Brick Lane

You'll be spoilt for choice along Brick Lane when it comes to curry houses! The deals that some restaurants offer are out of this world...

Billingsgate Market

If you're cooking up a seafood dinner, this is the place to go to pick up high-quality and reasonably priced fish - way better than the supermarket.

Swing Patrol Victoria Park

I love the beginner swing dance classes at The Royal Inn on the Park every Tuesday. The classes are fun, the teachers and students are friendly and the dancing is great! A great way to meet new people, get some exercise and, of course, learn to dance.

Print House

A Shorditch-y looking bar on Stratford's High Street next to the water. If you want to have a drink with friends where you can actually hear them talk, this is the place!

St Katharine Docks

Independent restaurants for dinner after a quick drink at The Dickens Inn or take a twilight stroll alongside the yachts.

Urban Food Fest

This food festival off Shoreditch High Street is there every Saturday throughout the day and late into the night. There's loads of delicious food stalls with cuisines from all over the world and bars serving tasty cocktails.

The Advisory

The best burger in Hackney and delicious sides too!

The Pantry

Specialist eggless cakes for every occasion!
