Bethnal Green, in Tower Hamlets, has roots in the silk-weaving trade — something evidenced by the large number of sari shops on Bethnal Green Road.  

The area was heavily bombed during the second world war, meaning that much of it has been rebuilt since then.

Take a look at Bethnal Green and surrounding areas of Cambridge Heath, Whitechapel and Shoreditch in photos.

York Hall. The venue is now used predominantly as a gym and swimming pool, although it originally opened as a boxing venue. Boxing events do still take place here. Photo: David McKelvey
