If you’re looking to move to East London, or are settling into your new place and want to know more about your new surroundings, we’ve pulled together some of what makes East London so special. 

It makes for a popular film location

Between dedicated sound stages and filming centres (such as East London Studios and LondonEast-UK), and quirky, unique locations (such as Clapton Tram and God’s Own Junkyard), there is plenty of choice for filmmakers. Of course there are a number of amazing film locations all across London, but none of them offer quite the inspired backdrop that the East does. 

There’s a place for everyone

East London is home to a wide mix of cultures and the shops, restaurants and surroundings reflect that. You can discover brand new cultures, and see first hand how they weave together to create the absolute unique feel of East London. Brick Lane deserves a mention here, because as well as being known for its Banksy pieces, it is famous for its diverse food options, and is unofficially the curry capital of England. 

It it constantly evolving

This area has seen a lot of change over the last few decades, and is constantly evolving to welcome new businesses and buildings. The 2012 Olympics was a time of big change, with the Olympic Park and East Village still exceptionally popular today. Right now the Royal Docks is going through an exciting change, with an £8bn transformation going on, which will see 30,000 new homes and 41,500 new jobs over the next 20 years. With it being London’s only Enterprise Zone, the whole area is ready for rapid growth. 

We’re delighted that our development at Gallions Place is one of the evolutions of this thriving area. If you’ve not found your home in East London yet, we have a number of sleek, modern apartments available. Gallions Place offers community life in a sought after, riverside setting with homes less than a year away from completion.
