Narrow street is in the Limehouse
area of east London and runs parallel to the River Thames. Within Limehouse, Narrow Street is the oldest part and a lot of the buildings originate from the 18th century.
The formation of Canary Wharf
brought interest and development to neighbouring Limehouse in the late 20th century, and subsequently Victorian warehouse conversions and new apartment complexes were built. Proximity to one of the world’s largest business hubs and the River Thames has caused prices to soar along with interest in living around the Limehouse area.
Limehouse has some lovely Georgian houses, most of which are in Narrow Street. There are also early Victorian cottages, new-build flats and warehouse conversions around the desirable and picturesque Limehouse Basin. Plus, the area has seen many developments of new-build homes, as well as affordable housing.
The street is home to many good restaurants and pubs. Notably, The Narrow
, a Grade II listed riverside bar, restaurant and terrace owned by Gordon Ramsay. Another notable eatery is The Grapes
which has history dating back 500 years and is co-owned by the film director Sean Mathias and actor Sir Ian Mckellen.
There are good transport links
with Limehouse station being a National Rail and DLR station. Plus, in 20 minutes walking distance Canary Wharf station provides access to the Jubilee Line and will soon have the new Elizabeth line, as part of the Crossrail
project. Furthermore, there are plenty of bus services and cycle routes.
The many schools
offer primary and secondary, special schools, religious schools and grammar schools. Ofsted ratings have been generally positive with many schools attaining ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ scores.
