Guide to Bow

Bow gets it’s name from the Bow Bridge that was originally built in the 12th century that spanned the River Lea connecting the area to Stratford. Once a mixture of period and council housing along with large industrial and commercial areas that have long been served by the excellent road links and long before, connecting canal ways, Bow has seen its landscape change dramatically ever since London was awarded the 2012 Olympic Games back in 2005.

Almost instantaneously large unused or derelict industrial areas were being bought and re developed by countless developers keen to take advantage of the huge investment and redevelopment opportunities that the Olympics were set to bring. Bow is now a super modern place to live with chic uber housing, utilising the latest in modern build concepts from reclaimed and sustainable materials through to low carbon systems to heat and power them. We particularly love Fish Island which certainly has a Camden Vibe with many canal barge restaurants and pop up art galleries, definitely a place to visit for a lazy Sunday stroll. Despite all the new and modern changes, Bow still retains many of its much older and well-loved areas such as the bustling and vibrant Roman Road market to the wide open spaces of Victoria Park.

With fantastic transport links via Bow Road and Bow Church DLR lines coupled with various bus links especially the No 8 which runs day and night from Bow Church through Liverpool Street and on to Tottenham Court Road, its no wonder the area is one East London’s most popular hot spots.
