Living in Limehouse
Limehouse is a combination of historic East London charm and modern London. The area benefits from several main thoroughfares, including the A13 (Commercial Road) and links to the DLR via Westferry, Shadwell and Limehouse, while Stepney Green and Mile End Tube stations connect to the District and Central lines respectively.
Limehouse is full of large open green spaces including Stepney Green Park, Whitehorse Road Park, Ackroyd Green Park, Kind Edward VII Memorial Park, St James’s Gardens and Ropemaker’s Fields. The high concentration of green areas means residents have access to the outdoors despite being in a very urban setting.
At the same time, those of a nautical persuasion have easy access to the Thames, Limehouse Marina and access to London’s long canal networks via Regent’s Canal and the Limehouse Cut.
