Central London is all well and good, but there's so much more to the capital than zone 1. That's why we've teamed up with London City Airport to show off some of the best boroughs on the airport's doorstep. Last month, we explored the gorgeous borough of Greenwich. Now, we shift our focus north of the river for a wander around Newham.
Our expedition takes us from community gardens to rooftop playgrounds, via a tiny chocolate factory and the home of UK Olympic and Paralympic glory. On the way, Newham locals share what makes their borough so special — hear their thoughts and get a glimpse of Newham's best bits below.
Newham is ever changing; it is so rich in culture, it’s diverse, and we are undergoing regeneration every day.

Next month, Beyond Zone 1 ventures further north for a wander around Waltham Forest — this year's London Borough of Culture.
