What locals say about Whitechapel

  1. Whitechapel is a very affordable area, yet very convenient to reach virtually any part of central London and the east, thanks to its vicinity to the city and the many tube lines that allow you to reach Canary Wharf, the south east, the Olympic village, the wapping area, the nightlife of Old Street and Shoreditch in a matter of minutes

  2. Whitechapel is such a vibrant area and constantly evolving. I love that you can walk to some of the best parts of East London - Victoria Park, Columbia Road Market and Shoreditch are all so close. Some beautiful old buildings, great pubs and only a short tube ride into the centre of town make it a really great place to live
