Trying to find your way around East London can be tricky, especially if you don’t know where you’re going. From Mile End tube station up and across to Victoria Park alongside Regent’s Canal, this historic London district offers so much to anyone who wants to visit or even live here. Very much a place of the people, Mile End (so named because it was a mile away from Aldgate on the Colchester Rd) and neighbouring Bow have been at the heart of London’s changing social dynamic over the centuries. From the birth of the ‘Peasant’s Revolt’ of 1381 to the home of The East London Suffragettes; even the great philanthropist Dr Barnardo kept his Copperfield Road Ragged School here (now the Ragged Schools Museum). It’s even said that to be a true ‘cockney’ you need to be born within earshot of Bow Bells. Although with the rise of noise pollution, that’s an ever diminishing patch east London turf. Making cockneys endangered species. So count yourself lucky if they wake you up on a Sunday. Follow this, our Mile End taxi driver’s guide to uncover the best pubs, bars and restaurants in th area. All you’ll need now is an Addison Lee.
