RentSquare: Mile End Area Guide

Posted by Natalie on 07/07/2016
















Mile End is a district of East London within the borough of Tower Hamlets just under 4 miles away from Charing Cross. As one of the earliest suburbs of the City of London, the rebuilding and renewal of the area attract a mixed crowd of young professionals who like a good pub, café with close proximity to the hip East London haunts. The neighbouring areas include Whitechapel, South Hackney, Bow, Poplar, and Stepney.


Mile End’s underground station is in zone 2, and sits on the District, Hammersmith & City, and Central line. Bus links are good, with major interchanges towards Hackney and south towards Canary Wharf.

Did you know?

Mile End was once known as La Mile ende back in 1288. The name is formed of the Middle English words ‘mile and ‘ende’ and means ‘the hamlet a mile away’ about the mile distance to Aldgate in the City, reached by the London to Colchester road.


There are plenty of great eats in the area, but if you’re looking for something with an arty twist then check out Muxima, on Romain Road, Bow. Muxima is a laid back artisanal café with interesting mismatched furniture that also forms part of an art gallery for local artists, musicians, comedians, DJs and more. It’s a perfect little spot for breakfast and tapas.
