Bow is in the borough of Tower Hamlets, click the links to see other regions.
Famous for the old saying of being born within the sound of Bow Bells (even though the bells referred to are actually from St. Mary-le-Bow church, in the City of London), this residential area is experiencing a surge of affluence that is not wholly welcome, with the Bow Quarter gated community being a clear sign of the divide that exists here. House prices are rising and with the upcoming Olympics being hosted nearby are set to rise through the roof; the opening of gastropubs and restaurants are a further testament to its change in character. For a touch of East End charm, head to Roman Road Market on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
