Heavily populated with immigrants from the Middle East, Asia and Africa, this London neighborhood contains the areas of Whitechapel and Spitalfields, which are still synonymous with social and economic deprivation.
Some say the east end is not what it used to be but it is still worth a visit fir its many cultures it’s old pubs linked to the old criminal east end the streets frequented by the likes of Jack the Ripper
We have never been to the east end in all the times we have come to London so it's with a bit of reluctance that we booked our hotel. We ended up really enjoying our stay and exploring the area. We especially loved walking around...More
As I just visited London for the day I would be hard pressed to know where one neighbourhood starts and another ends but according to Wiki Tower Hill is in The East End and so as that is the station I got off at I...More

East End is different, and rapidly changing, as new buildings are expanding from the City. It could disappear soon as the place, you see in the movie Legend" and rear people speaking cockney. From Jack the Ripper Whitechapel to hipster's Shoreditch and from nice and...More
Fascinating 2 hour walking tour by Ben Slow. He was very informative and well organised with excellent knowledge. His passion about the area is quite infectious. Amazing (and surprising) art.
Can't say any more - you need to find out for yourselves!

Of course I know about the crime rate in this part of London; I'm not 'just' a tourist, either, I live in London part of the year. But, like in other big cities all around the world, even those areas where there is a high crime rate and a lot of poverty, the East End has learned to show its best face to tourists, and it's got no doubt a special flair. And all the people who own restaurants and shops in the area want to make a living - WITHOUT having to turn to crime - and that's what they need a good international reputation for!

Only a few days ago a teenager had acid sprayed in his face in the East end by a moped gang in order to steal his push bike. He was in agony and could not see because the acid was in his eyes. He screamed for 15 minutes for help, but no one came to his aid because they did not know why he was screaming. And he could not see to find his own way to help.
Eventually, crawling through London traffic, an ambulance arrived. He was only 18 years old. He may never see again.
The community itself needs to stop protecting these criminals and identify them. The problem is that the community itself just does not care enough to make an effort - and a high percentage of the community are single parent, benefit claimants with criminal children or active in crime themselves.
