Other things to note
There is no aircon in the flat as is the case with 99.9% of the flats in London. We don't need it here as we only get about 3 weeks of warm weather here. For warm days, we can provide a fan.
Carmen’s home is located in Greater London, England, United Kingdom.
20 minute walk to Wilton's (oldest surviving music hall in Europe, stunning, right after Shadwell DLR station) 5 min walk to the Yurt cafe, by the DLR station, the only Yurt cafe in London. Super friendly atmosphere and selling some of the best fresh bread in the neighbourhood, baked in the premises by good old Andy! The Craft Beer Company has a nice little pub with dining room right by Limehouse DLR station. 5 min walk to Narrow street, where the infamous The Grapes pub is (owned by Sir Ian McKellen, appeared in one of Dickens' novels) 10 min walk to The Prospect of Whitby, the oldest surviving pub by the river in London, with a wonderful terrace. Try Smith's, in Wapping High Street, for some fantastic fish and seafood, right by the river. Urban baristas, by the Wapping overground station, does some excellent coffee and they also sell fantastic pastries and cakes. For work space I recommend Husk cafe (also by the DLR station, plenty of plugs and desks), the Yurt Cafe is also "laptop brigade" friendly, and the Turks Head, another cafe in Wapping with plugs and plenty of desk space, with a lovely back garden that overlooks a park. St Katharine's Docks is very charming and the marina is packed with restaurants. Emilia's (fantastic Italian) and Dokke (Asian fusion. Very, very good) are a must. Right behind The Troxy, an art deco jewel and a splendid architectural prodigy back when it was builtLimehouse appears in numerous works of art from painting to literature: Sir Conan Doyle, Samuel Pepys..... Cross The Highway and go towards the river, following the signs to Narrow street. Well and truly off the beaten track, Narrow Street is a hidden gem located deep within the East End of London. Narrow Street includes some of the few remaining and best preserved early Georgian Terraces in London. Standing at the end of this early Georgian terrace is a long, narrow pub called The Grapes. Built in 1720, this little pub has survived the industrial revolution, centuries of redevelopment and even The Blitz! Its major claim to fame however is that it was once a favourite drinking hole of Charles Dickens, with the author going as far as to immortalise it as “The Six Jolly Fellowship Porters pub” in his book "Our Mutual Friend.
DLR stations. Come out of the building and turn left, walk up to Cable street (30 seconds) and then turn left for Shadwell (10 min walk. DLR and Overground) or right for Limehouse (DLR) Cable street also has one of the cycling superhighways. If you go towards Shadwell you will find a bike rank with "Boris" bikes that you can rent there and then. If you come out of the building and turn right toward the Highway (10 seconds walk) there is a bus stop right by the corner with buses goind to Canary Wharf, Liverpool street and Whitechapel
