Mile End: Low-cost but lots to do

Mile End: Low-cost but lots to doLocated in the East End of London in the borough of Tower Hamlets, Mile End is 3.6 miles east-northeast of Charing Cross and is in the postcode district E3.

Upmystreet.com's neighbourhood snapshot of the centre of Mile End states that the average family income of those living in the area is low to medium, but the interest in current affairs is high.

A low percentage of the houses are owned by those with a mortgage, which means that the majority of people wanting to move to the area will be able to live in property to rent.

A medium proportion of the people living in the area are educated to a degree level and a similar amount are couples with children.

Some 70 per cent of the housing in the area is comprised of blocks of flats, which have one or two bedrooms.

A large amount of Mile End may be made up of residential property, but the area still has much to offer in terms of sporting facilities, pubs, restaurants and entertainments facilities.

Transport

Mile End station is on both the District, Hammersmith and City and Central Lines of the London Underground.

In a westerly direction, the Central Line stops at a number of popular stations, including Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus and Notting Hill Gate.

For those who prefer other means of transport, eight bus routes run through Mile End and the nearest Barclays Cycle Hire docking station is at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.

Schools

Those with children who are thinking of moving to Mile End will find there are plenty of good primary and secondary schools in the area and in the borough.

Sir John Cass Redcoat School, for example, is located in nearby Stepney Way and 75 per cent of its pupils that sat GCSEs last year achieved five A* to C grades, which is much higher than the 53.4 per cent national average.

Some 93 per cent of pupils at Bonner Primary School in Bethnal Green achieved a Level 4 in their Year 6 maths and English Sats, which is considerably higher than the national average of 73 per cent.

Things to do

The Mile End area is teaming with fun things to do, whatever a person's passion, be it sports, art, music or eating out.

Mile End Art Pavillion is a gallery space overlooking a small lake in Mile End Park. It is buried in a grass bank and regularly features exhibitions and installations.

Also located in Mile End Park is a £15 million leisure centre and stadium, which boasts state-of-the-art training facilities and a relaxing sauna.

For keen museum-goers, Mile End is home to the Ragged School Museum, which offers an authentic experience of what life was like for the poor of London's East End in the Victorian era.

With all of its great amenities and low-cost residential flats and houses, Mile End is an excellent location for those looking for inexpensive property to rent in the London borough of Tower Hamlets.
