Bow has been at the forefront of East London's renaissance from the very start, with the conversion of the former Bryant & May match factory into London's first big loft development elevating Bow’s standing from ignored to in-demand, almost overnight. Bow is now a natural choice for anyone wanting an authentic urban existence in London's inner city.
Alongside its very fine crop of designer apartments to cater to London’s creative, Bow’s conservation areas, Georgian garden squares and lovely waterways create a unique combination of old and new, preserving a genuine East End flavour and embracing contemporary life in the capital.
The life force of Bow is Roman Road market, on the oldest known trading route in Britain, where cosy cafés and coffee houses are being added to the traders' stalls and calls. And up the canal on Bow Island is a superb waterside clutch of former warehouses, now a collection places to eat, shop and keep fit.
Transport is excellent, with the DLR, District, Central and Hammersmith & City lines putting Canary Wharf, Bank, Liverpool Street and the West End all within a short ride of Bow.
