London area of East London guide

What to do and where to stay in London's East London neighbourhood

With a population of around 2 million, East London is the most densely populated of London's sub regions. The East End is made up of the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Bexley, Greenwich, Lewisham, Hackney, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and the City of London. Compared to West London, which has a reputation for being smart and sedate, East London is celebrated for its multi-cultural ethnic mix, its "Cockney" roots, and its vibrant nightlife. West Ham United is the area's principal football club and "The Hammers" are currently fighting North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur for ownership of the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Summer Games.
