Transfer to Tower Hamlets (E14) from Heathrow Airport
East 14 district provides us with historic, mainly residential areas of supreme beauty but also with places of dark memories like wartime bombings. The Tower Hamlets district is comprised of 5 primary areas which we will describe today one by one. Poplar, Isle of Dogs, Blackwall, Limehouse and Cubitt Town form the district of Tower Hamlets.
If you’re looking for impressive estates and terraced houses in London, then Poplar is the place you should be in. The area is a mix of 18th and 19th century impressive buildings and together with the ancient constructions and residential places forms some landscapes of great architectural beauty. You can either choose from Lansbury Estate, Balfron Tower, Carradele House, Glenkerry House and, in case you are in love with legends, you’ll surely want to go to the Robin Hood Gardens.
During WWI bombing the East End of London was one of the most heavily damaged locations. Bombs heavily dropped over London and especially over Poplar where 104 people were killed, 154 heavily injured and 269 slightly injured. One of the bombs hit a school in Poplar and killed 18 students. A statue stands now on the spot in their memory.
Even if the sky was filled with lead and most of East London was destroyed, some buildings managed to survive by fortune and are now converted into apartments like the old Spratt’s factory. This indicates that Poplar is becoming a member of other areas of East London in being gentrified.
