Packed with iconic landmarks and a stone’s throw from the City, Whitechapel’s unique blend of history, culture and creativity makes it one of London’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. It’s no wonder so many innovative companies and blue-chip corporates have chosen to make this area their home. Whitechapel is full of worldclass cultural institutions including old favourites, such as the Whitechapel Gallery and Wilton Hall, as well as exciting newcomers.

We’re well connected in the East End
Whitechapel is one of the best connected parts of the city. It’s got links to the Central, Circle, Hammersmith & City, District and Metropolitan lines as well as a number of Overground stations. Better still, they’re all within easy walking distance of The Loom. It’s a five-minute stroll from Aldgate East and a short walk from Aldgate, Liverpool Street and Whitechapel station. Crossrail’s Elizabeth line is launching in Autumn 2019 and will cut most journey times in half. It will also provide a direct service to Heathrow with a travel time of just 38 minutes. On your bike It’s easy for cyclists to get here with two Cycle superhighways on our doorstep. CS2 runs from Aldgate to Bow along Whitechapel High Street, and CS3 links the nearby Tower of London to Green Park.
