The towpath along this section of the River Lea has been extensively improved as part of the regeneration of the area in conjunction with the building of Bow River Village. The act of re-opening the waterside to pedestrians and reconnecting the location with nearby public walkways provides an important integration of Bow River Village into the neighbourhood.
The River Lea and Limehouse Cut run straight into London’s docks. Take a stroll around the network of canals and waterways and you’ll discover reminders of Bow’s estimable trading heritage, alongside plenty of local nature and wildlife.
Bow today is a fun and culturally diverse place to live with a combination of contrasts from traditional taverns to gastro pubs; hip restaurants to East End cafes; fashion boutiques to ethnic delis, film studios to artists’ galleries not to mention one of London’s longest-running street markets at Roman Road.
