Can Bethnal Green rival Shoreditch as a new go-to destination?

9th May 2018
With its abundance of old-school pubs and established cafes, coupled with proposed re-invigoration and redevelopment, Bethnal Green aspires to compete with it’s historically more affluent neighbours.

Extensive plans have been put forward by leading property developers, suggesting that the area has a great potential. Crest Nicholson are working to finalise their London Chest Hospital redevelopment proposals. Also, Telford Homes investing in the unoccupied former London Electricity Board headquarters building, indicate that we can expect to witness the rapid growth of Bethnal Green in the near future.

The local area has many attractions to offer its residents and visitors. Those wishing to enjoy refreshing beverages with friends will be welcomed in The Kings Arms. “With the finest selection of local and international beers, a back bar to die for, and awesome cheese and meat boards from London's best suppliers”.

For live music events and seasonal parties, Old George is "a perfect place to fill your hunger for delicious food or a refreshing pint. This beautifully restored London pub, dating back to the 1700s, will definitely provide a fair bit of culture to go along with your meal."

The Star of Bethnal Green “Amongst a road of predominantly traditional, East London boozers is this little gem, quiet and relaxed during the daytime, with DJ’s and disco nights in the evening.”

If you crave more sophisticated cuisine, you may want to visit Coupette. “Inspired by France but proudly local, Coupette brings the very best drinks and food in an upbeat and relaxed environment. Offering an eclectic drinks menu and selection of reimagined regional and classic French dishes it is a perfect place to get your taste buds spoiled.”

For a dose of caffeine, HOLY SHOT coffee shop is just perfect! "From classic Americano to Coconut Milk Japanese Matcha Latte. Offering a great selection of salads, sandwiches, smoothies, soups and healthy sweet snacks, it is a great place for a lunch break."

Bethnal Green has so much more to offer than just food and drinks. You can visit the V&A Museum of Childhood which is a branch of the Victoria and Albert Museum and a host of many events and exhibitions like ‘’Growing Up in London 1930 – 1960: Growing Up in the War’’ illustrated talk or ‘’Design Tea-Tray Workshop with Ella Doran’’.

Situated a stone's throw away from Bethnal Green tube, Backyard Comedy Club hosts stand-up comedy, and also variety shows, cabaret events along with many other charity events.

And, of course, we couldn’t leave out the famous Columbia Road Flower Market. Overflowing with beautiful flowers every Sunday, the market also offers much more than that. It is a place where everyone can find something they'd love to add to their collection. Traders offer a variety of different goods from vintage clothes and hand-made jewellery to renovated furniture and unique pieces of art or antiques.

Properties that are For Sale and To Let move very quickly and our office in Roman Road is perfectly located to manage this and the surrounding areas. Due to the increasing popularity of the locality, we find ourselves regularly in need of new properties to sell and let.

We have a strong local track record and have successfully marketed and sold/let many properties, do you have a property to Sell, Let or one requiring Property Management? Please get in touch.
