East London Walks

Take your pick from this selection of walk leaflets, articles and maps, all designed to help you make the most of East London, on foot.

A handful of our walks from East End Life
Here's a selection of walks written for East End Life by Walk East’s Graham Barker. Each one includes a map and commentary, highlighting points of interest along the way. It’s a chance to get a fresh perspective on the East End. And look out for a new walk each month, in the newspaper or online.

A Walk through Spitalfields’ Stories
A short literary stroll. As you weave through the streets and alleys, in the heart of the old East End, you’re following in the footsteps of the many immigrants that have settled here – French Hugenots, Eastern European Jews and most recently the Bengali community. The streets bustle with a rich cultural mix, past and present.

Get to know Bow
Even if you have lived in Bow for years, going on one of these walks can give you a fresh view of the local area. Each walk is circular, about 2-3 miles, starting from St Stephen’s Health Centre, just off Roman Road. As you re-discover your neighbourhood, you’ll be getting some exercise too.

Tower Hamlets walking maps
If you’re looking for new walking route in your neighbourhood, or you want to explore other areas of the borough, then take a look at these eight maps, each offering several suggested routes. It does what it says on the tin.
