Stepney is a district in the East End of London and lays between Whitechapel, Limehouse and Wapping in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Before the 19th century, Stepney was, like many other parts of today’s east London, a quiet and sparsely populated area. Rapid growth in population triggered a rapid development of accommodation, mainly for maritime workers along the river and Mile End Road. Stepney Green railway station was opened in 1902 and further boosted the growth of the district.

Stepney was one of areas severely damaged during the Blitz in WWII, a third of the district was destroyed in the attempted of destruction of London’s docks. In the 1960’s the area underwent an intensive development which created modern residential estates amongst older established properties.

Despite the Blitz destruction, some Georgian architecture and Victorian era terraced housing can be found near Arbour Square and around Matlock Street. Recent developments have turned many older buildings into new-build luxury developments. New apartment buildings are arranged around traditional roads with landscaped courtyards that offer residents a charming combination of history and modern day living.

Stepney’s centre revolves around the St Dunstan’s 10th century All Saints Church on Stepney High Street. Another landmark is Stepney City Farm, built in the 1970s on a neglected bombsite. This three-acre working farm is not only a tourist attraction but also a place where everyone has a chance to meet farm animals or learn how to grow their food. The farm hosts a popular Farmer’s Market bringing together a lot of fresh local produce available for purchase.

Stepney's good transport links attracts young professionals, nearby Whitechapel tube station provides Overground trains to Canary Wharf via Canada Water. Stepney Green Underground station, in Zone 2, is also served by the District and Hammersmith & City lines. There are also several well-connected bus routes and Santander Bike docking stations.

The area is also popular with students as it is close to Queen Mary University of London and offers an easy commute to The City. The abundance of green spaces and local activities make it a desirable place for young families as well. Historic roots and excellent transport links make Stepney a highly sought after place to live.
