Since it includes the tourist hotspot of the Tower of London within its boundaries, the neighborhood of Tower Hill isn't often thought of as a residential area, but with its location just east of the City this is a good place to live for people who want to be close to work.

You'll find a combination of old and new homes here, ranging from recently built modern condos and apartments to converted warehouses to the occasional detached Victorian house. A lot of what you will find is on the smaller side, so Tower Hill primarily attracts young professionals that don't need a lot of space and want to be walking distance to work.

Many of the local shops and restaurants are only open during the week since they cater to workers in the City. Still, there are quite a few good restaurants in striking distance and its central location makes it easy to get to weekend-friendly parts of the city.

Tower Hill is bordered on the west and north by the City, on the east by Shadwell, and on the south by the Thames.
