Local Regeneration. Social Rejuvenation

Once the inbetweener, Whitechapel is finding its niche and finally securing destination status

Gunpowder, White’s Row
Leadenhall Market
Ottolenghi, Artillery Lane

An enviable position
With the City of London on one side and the vibrant environs of Shoreditch and Spitalfields on the other, Whitechapel finds itself in a prime location. But not to be defined by its neighbours, the area proudly boasts a strong identity, characterised by its industrial history, cultural diversity and reputation as a homeland for artists and innovators.

A cradle of enterprise
Repurposed warehouses buzz to a new generation of workers: digital marketeers, app creators, makers and hot-deskers. And non-work time can be easily filled with a plethora of pleasurable experiences. Enriching the area’s already vibrant mix of flavours comes a fresh flood of food and drink pioneers. Sample the delicacies of Argentinian steak maestros, rotisserie smokers, artisan chocolatiers, underground mixologists and tequila connoisseurs. You can even sip cocktails in a prison or order street food from a train carriage. The amenity list is dizzying, and it’s added to almost daily. Moreover, the Elizabeth line regeneration project will bring exciting new urban realm initiatives. The planned pedestrianisation and green spaces will be a welcome enhancement to your everyday landscape.

Abundant rail and cycle links
A one-minute walk takes you to Aldgate and Aldgate East stations. And in seven minutes, you’re at Liverpool Street, a travel nexus of four underground lines and overground services. Ten minutes to the east lies Whitechapel station, which offers further two underground lines and more overground train links. Whitechapel is also one of the easiest parts of London to enjoy and access by bike. The Cycleway that runs from Aldgate to Bow along Whitechapel High Street is being improved, and a planned cycle ‘super corridor’ will link the nearby Tower of London to Green Park.

Effortless travel connections are a prerequisite of London-based businesses, and Whitechapel doesn’t disappoint

Anticipating the Elizabeth line
The soon-to-arrive Elizabeth line will drop a pin on Whitechapel as one of the best-connected areas of London. The White Chapel Building will be served by two equidistant stations: Liverpool Street to the west and Whitechapel to the east.
