  WHAT’S LIVING IN Bethnal Green LIKE?

Bethnal Green is a hip neighborhood in the throes of gentification yet it remains relatively affordable. It isn’t clear how much longer home prices will remain reasonable as high street stores, highrises, new developments, and boutique hotels encroach, driving up the cost of living.

The residents are a mix of firmly established working class families and young professionals making inroads as the neighorhood's cachet increases. It’s become highly popular with people in their twenties and thirties who still haven’t started a family since it offers two important standards: good nightlife and a short commute. Renting is definitely cheaper, especially if you are willing to live with a roommate.

For foodies, Bethnal Green's hundreds of restaurants will keep you happy for a long, long time. It's got a goodnightlife as well. Local favorites include Satan's Whiskers cocktail bar, whose unique interior included taxidermied animals in clothing and a "unicorn" skeleton. 

The local Weavers Fields park has a dog walking area, a playground, and athletic fields.

Bethnal Green is on the Underground's Central Line to it's a short commute into the City.

Bethnal Green is bordered on the north by Haggerston and South Hackney, on the east by Mile End, on the south by Stepney and Whitechapel, and on the west by Shoreditch.
