Widely known as one of the most historic parts of the capital, East London is home to a wealth of iconic landmarks and attractions including ancient churches, medieval houses and listed buildings.
Although the area has retained much of its working class heritage and, of course, cockney slang, it is now a thriving, vibrant, and lively area of London. Home to a diverse community of Londoners and nationalities from around the world who now call London their home, East London is alive with activity, both day and night.
East London has also undergone a host of re-generation projects in recent years, which have inevitably paved the way for plenty of new buildings, including the exclusive contemporary apartments that now populate areas such as Bow and Woolwich.
With its close proximity to some of the capital’s most influential business centres, and reliable and frequent transport links, East London attracts both young and wealthy professionals who live and work throughout the area.
But that’s not all, East London is also known for its wealth of cool nightspots, bespoke boutiques, and appetising restaurants. Not to mention the host of vintage shops littered along the famous Brick Lane, and the vibrant art and music scene that has become synonymous with Shoreditch.
As one of London’s most popular, hip and happening places to work, live and play, property in the area tends to sell incredibly quickly, meaning that, once people establish roots in East London, they tend to stay.

What Should I Consider Before Extending My East London Home?
Extending your home is one of the most exciting home improvement projects you are likely to experience in your lifetime.
It’s not only an opportunity to create a brand new living space, but it also offers the chance to inject character, style and personality into your home. With this in mind, there’s lots to consider before embarking on an extension project.
For example, will you need planning permission? Do you know the relevant building regulations associated with your property? Have you notified building control? Is the extension compatible with the existing structure of your home? These are all things that you must consider… but we can be by your side, every step of the way.
