Where the creative east meets the bustling city
Your home sits at the gateway between work and pleasure: with the commercial heart of the city on one side and the vibrancy of Shoreditch on the other. Work, rest, play, all in the same postcode.
E1: Where art, commerce and heritage collide.
Explore Aldgate where the old gates of the city once resided, or check out the adjacent Cable Street made famous when eastenders clashed with marching Blackshirts in 1936. The Tower of London is one of the city’s most iconic features dating back to the 11th century, a testament to London’s ability to preserve heritage while moving relentlessly forward.
Where history is still being made
Dock Street embodies both tradition and progress, with heritage sites like Wilton’s Music Hall set against the cutting edge architecture of London’s skyline and Renzo Piano’s masterpiece, the Shard. From the Tower of London to the Canary Wharf in the distance, history is all around you.
