As you weave your way through the ever-changing streets of Whitechapel you’re struck by how both old and new come seamlessly together to create a neighbourhood that never loses its unique identity. It’s a perfect mix of history, culture and creativity, and it’s right on our doorstep.
Packed with Georgian and Victorian terraces, industrial warehouses and new buildings, you’ll find bars, boutiques, coffee shops and galleries.
Coffee? We’ve got you covered. From the trailblazing Look Mum No Hands! cycle café on The Loom’s ground floor to the independent Exmouth Coffee Company and the downright unorthodox Leave The Herd Behind. Pizza? Pizza Pilgrims, fast becoming a London institution with outlets across the city is coming to the neighbourhood to serve up the best Neapolitan pizzas outside of Naples. Pubs? The Culpeper, one of our locals, is more than your standard boozer serving up some of the best food to be found in the East End. Movies? A new Curzon cinema is coming to Whitechapel, offering an unrivalled film programme featuring the blockbusters as well as the avant-garde. All this plus the best curry houses in London, one of the world’s oldest surviving music halls where you can catch theatre performances and, if you’re lucky, a gig by the Hackney Colliery Band. Not to mention the world-famous Whitechapel Gallery, a place where for over 100 years modern masters and contemporaries have been celebrated in the same breath.
You’ll find all of this and so much more in Whitechapel.
With the growing importance of the East End and a new wave of development coming to the area significant improvements are being made to create a greener, more pedestrian and cyclist-friendly area – all of which makes it even easier to get here.
