Whitechapel Area Guide
The E1 postcode is full of a diverse community, great shops, bars and restaurants. Shadwell and Stepney form the heart of E1 - inner-city districts whose streets, a historical mix of Victorian and post-war housing with few hotels gives a glimpse of a bygone London.
PLACES TO GOTroxy - This splendid 1930s art deco Grade II listed East End dance hall has a capacity of over 2,600 and prides itself as "London's most versatile venue". A premier conferencing, exhibition, a banqueting and live concert venue.
93 Feet East - Take a simple DJ Bar formula and applies it perfectly. The garden is enormous, laid back and the music policy of eclectic excellence.
Half Moon Young People's Theatre - An excellent youth theatre housed in an old Victorian townhouse, the Half Moon has been entertaining young Londoners since the mid-1970s.
The Old Truman Brewery - Popular with the Shoreditch crowd, The Old Truman houses more than 200 small, creative businesses, a bar and several areas for hire.
Rich Mix Centre - Housed in a stunning, 62,000 square feet complex, this former garment factory is now a sleek, ultra-modern base for both entertainment and education. One of the main attractions is the three-screen cinema offering a mix of films from popular family favourites through to art-house festivals.
