Kitchen - fully equipped with everything you need to make dinner for your group

The local area:

Immediate vicinity - a few minutes away from the apartment you'll discover take away restaurants offering many different cuisines (including the English tradition of fish & chips). Small grocery stores are plentiful and larger convenience stores are 5 minutes away

Canary Wharf - the skyscrapers of London's finance hub are visible from the front door of the apartment, and it's conveniently located minutes away. Here you'll find hundreds of bars, restaurants, supermarkets, shops, banks, post office and grocery stores.

Stratford City Shopping Centre (one of the largest shopping centres in the northern hemisphere) - offers an abundance of shops, restaurants, grocery stores, bars

Olympic Park Stratford - the apartment is well located for guests who are participating in competitions at the various sporting events held at the centre

ExCel Centre - conveniently close if you're attending (or exhibiting) at one of the many conferences, seminars or trade shows which takes place there

Public transport - Devons Road is the closest subway. The apartment is well connected by buses, and there is a hire by the hour cycle docking station at the end of the steet

This is historical London at its best! The East End is alive with hundreds of churches, synagogues, old ruins, converted factories, remnants of London during the blitz and also has the best of new London - modern developments, award winning architecture, buildings of all shapes and sizes, not to mention the London ExCel Centre and also the Olympic Park, both of which are very accessible to the apartment. Also the waterways (canals and locks) are a few minutes walk from the apartment, and provides a fascinating different view of London.

These waterways provide a hidden 'highway' of connections all across London and it's definitely a recommendation to explore them if you have time.

Canary Wharf (the financial heart of London) is minutes away and has hundreds of restaurants, bars and shops to keep everyone happy!

And if that's not enough shopping and restaurants for you, Stratford Shopping Centre, one of the largest shopping centres in the northern hemisphere, is also very close by.

This is a part of London most visitors don't get to see but for me it's the true city.

The apartment is also very accessible to the London ExCel Centre if you're attending one of the many conferences, seminars or trade shows there.

Likewise the Olympic Village (Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park) is easily accessible from the apartment if you are taking part in one of the numerous sporting events, or are going along as a spectator.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I recycle wherever possible, am a keen conservationist (after all, I grew up in Australia with almost daily water restrictions) and a clean-freak! I also suffer from dust allergies, so make sure the apartment is always presented in a way I'd want it if I was staying there. You'll also notice a distinct lack of toxic chemicals - with all the products available on the market today I don't see the need to use smelly, harmful products more than is absolutely necessary.

Why the Owner Chose Poplar, London, UK:
At the time I bought the apartment, Bow (the neighbourhood in which it's located) was not well known, despite it being so well situated between the city centre and Canary Wharf (the financial heart of London). However I was sure it was just a matter of time before the rest of London realized what I already knew - what an undiscovered gem it is! Now, more than a decade later, the face of Bow has really changed. Its popularity has risen exponentially, and the streets are now a lovely mix of old converted warehouses and factories and new luxury apartments - all of which creates a really vibrant, colourful area. The apartment is also only a 2 minute walk to the closest subway station - a definite bonus. The London ExCel Centre is easily accessible, making the apartment a popular choice for guests attending conferences and trade shows there. Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (the Olympic Stadium where the London 2012 Olympics took place) is a few minutes away by bus or metro, and is still one of the primary sporting arenas for main sporting events held in London.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment is a duplex (split level) property, and the fact that the living areas are below, and the sleeping areas above, gives everyone a bit more space to live. So the TV can be on downstairs whilst others are upstairs sleeping. The fact that the apartment was built sometime around the 1960's means the room sizes aren't as small as they are in most new build London apartments. The added bonus of a balcony giving some outside space, albeit small, is a rare commodity in the city. Walk just a couple of minutes away from the apartment and you'll find the canalways that connect up much of London - it's a very enjoyable day out and a great way to see a different side of London!
