10 reasons to live in Bromley-by-Bow

Bow River Village is our collection of waterfront homes situated on the banks of the River Lea in Bromley-by-Bow. We’ve rounded up our top 10 reasons on why Bromley-by-Bow is a great place to live:


1.     Regeneration

Bromley-by-Bow has recently undergone an extensive £1.1bn redevelopment. It is located moments away from Stratford which is home to the £12bn Legacy of London 2012. The area is also close to Tower Hamlets which will benefit from a £9m investment to improve the local transport.


2.     Elizabeth Line 

The new Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) is due to Launch in Stratford later this year, making it faster and easier to get across London. The Elizabeth Line will shorten the commute for those connecting from Bow, who will be able to get from Stratford to Bond Street in just 15 minutes.


3.     Employment

Bromley-By-Bow is located just a short distance from the Capital’s major financial hub, Canary Warf. The area is also a less than ten-minute commute from Shoreditch, which is buzzing with young professionals and quirky start-ups.  

4.     Shopping

East London is a central hub for new and exciting shops, including Westfield Stratford which is home to a huge number of major retailers. There is also Roman Road Market and Victoria Park Village which are full of unique shopping experiences. 


5.     Education

Due to its short distance from a number of top London universities, Bromley-By-Bow is a very attractive area for international students. UCL is set to open an East Campus in the next few years, and UAL’s London College of Fashion will be uniting 6,500 students into one campus in east London in 2022. 


6.     Parks

From Victoria Park to the Olympic Park in Stratford, East London is also home to some fantastic green spaces. The area has something to offer everybody, from adventure playgrounds to taking a stroll through exotic greenery. 


7.     River Views

Bow is located at the intersection of Bow Creek, River Lea and Limehouse Cut Canal. The area offers beautiful riverside views from every direction as well as riverside walkways, making it the ideal location for a morning jog or cycle. 

8.     Arts & Culture

East London has a colourful history and vibrant culture, and the neighbourhood has plenty of art galleries, museums and independent theatres. Genesis Cinema is located close to Bow; a local picture house which showcases both blockbuster and independent films. Hackney Empire is also located close by - an iconic venue for arts and popular culture. 


9.     Food & Drink

Finally, east London is home to a well-connected hub of restaurants and bars. The weekends see the area buzzing with life, from Boxpark in Shoreditch to Brick Lane weekend food markets, there’s plenty to enjoy. 


10.  Bow River Village
