Additional Location Information
The immediate area facing the apartment is the wonderful Victoria Park which you can reach by foot in less than 2 minutes. Cross the little bridge over the canal and you are in the 218 acre park with lovely flower beds, a lake, children's playgrounds and tree lined avenues and a large path that run round the park which is great for cycling.
There is a café straight ahead less than 5 mns away for your quick English breakfast. If you walk left you reach The Pavilion, built under Queen Victoria, this domed café is the old pavilion for Victoria Park and looks out over the boating lake. On the edge of the park you will find Victoria Park Village, 10 minutes’ walk away with a great selection of independent shops, pubs, restaurants there are designer boutiques, specialist interior shops, cafes, pottery and gift shops as well as hair and beauty salons.
Further afield but within 20 minutes there is Spitafields market, Brick Lane and Petticoat lane markets as well as Columbia Road’s flower market, Whitechapel galleries and of course the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
For the more classic London the Central Line tube which is a 20mns walk (or a 10mn bus ride on the #8 bus) takes you to Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus and Bond Street – the main shopping streets of London also called the West End. Here you will also find most of London’s Theatres.
St Pauls Cathedral is 3 stops away on the same Central Line.
From the Mile end tube line (20mns walk) take the District line to Embankment, Victoria, Richmond, Kew Gardens or exit at South Kensington for the Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A;) and the Science museum, great for kids.
