Area Guide: West Ham lies in the London Borough of Newham and is a part of the former territory of Ham until its division in the 12th century. The River Thames marks area boundaries to the south and River Lea to the west. West Ham borders Poplar and Bromley-by-Bow, resurgent Stratford, and Canning Town in Docklands.

Following the Metropolitan Building Act in 1844, West Ham underwent rapid growth and became one of the major manufacturing centres in Victorian Britain. As a result, today's West Ham consists of a combination of Victorian and Edwardian terraced houses with later additions of modern and new build developments.

In recent years, many new family homes were constructed in the area, drawing young families and first-time buyers looking for value for money. In addition, there are several recreational parks in the area, including West Ham Park, for example. Places like Royal Victoria Dock are just a stone's throw away.

Barking Road offers excellent basic shopping facilities, pubs, and dining options with all types of cuisine, from British pub food to the Caribbean and Indian. Westfield Stratford City is nearby and offers over 250 shops and is the largest urban leisure and shopping centre in Europe.

West Ham has excellent transport links, with West Ham station being on the District, and Hammersmith & City lines, in zone 2 and 3. There are regular Jubilee Line and DLR services connecting Canary Wharf from West Ham Station.

West Ham is probably most famous for its football team, West Ham United. They played at Upton Park from 1904 to 2016 when the stadium took The Boleyn Ground as its name. West Ham now plays their football matches in the London Stadium, within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. In recent years, The Boleyn Ground was acquired and redeveloped by Barratt Homes into Upton Gardens, a modern development of luxury homes and apartments.
