About Limehouse


Pottery was once made here (the name derives from the Lime Kilns used) and it is a former world trading port, but Limehouse’s biggest claim to fame is its colourful Chinese population of the early 20th century.

Where is Limehouse?

Found in the borough of Tower Hamlets on the north bank of the River Thames, Limehouse is strictly East End. It’s less than four miles from Charing Cross and forms the north-west gateway to the Isle of Dogs. In fact, the stretch of the river snaking around the west of the Isle of Dogs is called Limehouse Reach.  The Limehouse Link – a tunnel sitting under the Thames – will take you right into the City.

Cars aren’t recommended in the centre of London or its outlying areas due to the sheer congestion and high parking charges. As a result, it’s better to either go by foot – a walk into the City from Limehouse takes under 45 minutes – or use of the many excellent public transport services.

Invest in Limehouse

The population of Limehouse is 6,117, according to the last census, with a very high - 82.1 per cent - of residents of working age (16-64). In fact, Limehouse has a very highly-educated resident population. At the time of the last census, more than half of residents were managers or professionals. There were fewer students compared to the rest of Tower Hamlets borough and .61 per cent of all residents help at least a Level Four qualification. Limehouse also claimed the second-lowest unemployment rate in the Borough (6.6 per cent compared to 12 per cent overall).

Due to its proximity, many residents in Limehouse work in the financial or media sectors based in Canary Wharf. As a result, Limehouse itself tends to have small businesses rather than major employers. For existing and new businesses moving to the borough, Tower Hamlets council are currently offering SME Energy Improvement Grants up to £5,000.

Moving to Limehouse

The area’s Chinese past may not be much in evidence today - there are now only around three Chinese restaurants in Limehouse - but its legacy remains in street names such as Ming Street, Canton Street, Pekin Street. One of the more popular restaurants in Limehouse is Shanshuijian, which has proved a hit with locals and critics.

Today this East End borough is more of a Bangladeshi enclave but is also becoming increasingly gentrified - thanks to its proximity to the finance centre of Canary Wharf. Parts of its earlier character remain, however, especially in the facades of its grand old shipbuilding warehouses (some of which are now luxury penthouse flats) in Narrow Street.

One early Georgian building that has survived redevelopment is the 400-year-old, Grade II-listed “The Grapes” pub – also in Narrow Street. Its current preservation is a lot to do with the fact actor Sir Ian McKellen has owned it since 2011(his Gandolph staff is displayed in the bar). Those who feel they have to get out of the city for a bit and experience some greenery, have Ropemakers Fields pretty much on their doorstep. You’ll also find two tennis courts there for tougher exercise.

Entertainment in Limehouse is provided by the Art Deco events venue, The Troxy. This former cinema has been used by opera singers and bingo callers in the past; today it’s the turn of musicians and their regular concerts. For food shopping in the area, there is the Farmers Market every Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm. Designer stores and High Street outlets can be found at nearby Canary Wharf Shopping Centre. All in all, the best way to discover more about the area is to stay in long term Limehouse apartments, including spacious living areas and fully fitted kitchens, where guests can live and work comfortably without hassle or inconveniences.
