Alex Neil were founded over 30 years ago and have accumulated an excellent reputation as E1W Estate Agents, providing residential sales and lettings services.
E1W is made up of the area of Wapping, located in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The postcode district benefits from riverside views of the Thames whilst being only a short distance from Canary Wharf
and central London.
Historically Wapping was a useful place for maritime activity, being positioned along the Thames allowed for ships to offload various goods. However, the area fell into decline due to the collapse of the London docks and the area became derelict. Nevertheless, the once abandoned warehouses have now been transformed into residential conversions and are highly sought after.
E1W is packed with a wealth of restaurants and pubs, providing places to eat and drink with a riverside view. There are also many quaint cafes dotted around St Katherine Docks Marina.
For entertainment, the 300-year-old Wilton’s Grand Music Hall provides live music from popular artists to theatre productions of Shakespeare. There are also several small parks for green spaces and Wapping Rose Garden has beautiful rose bushes to admire.
There are many schools including primary and secondary, special schools, religious schools and grammar schools. Ofsted ratings have been generally positive with many schools attaining ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ scores.
Fantastic riverside location makes E1W an attractive place to live. If you’re looking to find out the value of your home, to purchase, to sell or to rent a property then our highly motivated teams would love to help.
