Enjoy the art of good living
A place with magnetic appeal
A special place to put down roots
Bow is at the centre of a golden triangle between Canary Wharf, the City and Stratford. A bustling, young, multicultural area, it’s an enticing blend of old London history and new London lifestyle. Central to East London’s regeneration programme, it continues to get better with age. Bow East sits close to where the River Lea meets the City Mill River. They’re just two of the area’s many waterways that powered Bow’s nautical heritage and now provide a soothing backdrop to city living. Nearby, at the Olympic Park, the government’s developing the East Bank, which will further increase the park’s huge appeal. A new cultural and educational quarter it will be home to the BBC, the V&A, Sadler’s Wells, London College of Fashion and University College London. Exceptional sports facilities and a huge variety of entertainment options, Bow really is an area that offers something for everyone.

Bow offers so many ways to make the most of London life. From revelling in heady nightlife to relaxing in quirky cafes, to wandering along tranquil waterside paths.

When it comes to nightlife, you’re also spoilt for choice. Dance all night at nearby Bloc, savour a craft ale at The Bow Bells, see a show at the Hackney Empire or catch a blockbuster at Westfield Stratford City.
