Bethnal Green

Bethnal Green Area Guide


One of east London’s most famous boroughs, Bethnal Green was one of the first to be revived in the last couple of decades. But despite the change in fortunes from a run-down, bomb-damaged area just after the War to a hip and trendy location today, Bethnal Green has retained its ‘village’ feel and is still very much an East End area. It’s well known as an artist’s haven, especially along Clare Street. 

Bethnal Green is and always has been a vibrant, multi-cultural location, and you’ll find the Bengali New Year being celebrated in all its jubilation and colour in Weaver’s Fields every year. There’s plenty of ethnic food shops and restaurants selling everything from genuine Jamaican Jerk Chicken to Polish Pączki (doughnuts).

Transportation is plentiful, with Bethnal Green Tube station easily accessible from almost anywhere within a couple of miles’ radius, while buses run straight into the City and to Canary Wharf and Docklands.
