The latest episode of Beyond Zone 1 — our video series exploring the boroughs of doorstep of London City Airport — takes us to one of east London's most vibrant areas, Tower Hamlets.
The borough has all the best elements of modern London squeezed into its tight boundaries. Tower Hamlets is home to one of the most diverse populations in the country, as well as a rich industrial heritage, and has long been a hotbed of regeneration.
On our visit to the beating heart of the East End we encountered towering skyscrapers, London's oldest public park, and the capital's only lighthouse — not to mention one or two excellent pubs and some great curry houses. Have a gander.
Next on our list? The sensational borough of Southwark — stay tuned!
