Bow, East London E3 is within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and is historically known as the heart of the East End. It’s believed that being born in earshot of the ‘Bow Bells’ from the church of St Mary-le-Bow in the City of London gives someone true Cockney status. In the 1800s, the bells were audible across neighbouring boroughs but increases in modern ambient noise has reduced that reach. The name Bow derives from an abbreviation of Stratford-atte-Bow, the medieval name for the area that once boasted a bow shaped bridge.

Bow itself dates back in the history books and shows its origins as around the year 1110, and is one of the oldest suburbs in London. Bow and the surrounding neighbourhoods saw massive regeneration due to the arrival of the Olympic games in 2012, Stratford was home to the Olympic Village, E20 and its legacy lives on today.

The East End and Bow’s rich history is complimented by modern city improvements, there are colourful contrasts in property and architecture. You can find attractive terrace housing from the Victorian and Georgian periods blended with modern apartments and local authority housing.
