Bethnal Green Skyline

Bethnal Green Skyline

Bethnal Green has been my London home since I moved here and I love it. With a diverse mix of people, a huge creative scene and being so close to the centre of London, it’s hard not to fall in love.

I was granted access to this rooftop which belongs to Oxford House, just off of Weaver’s Field. Oxford House, opened in 1884 as a place where the ills of Bethnal Green could be worked out. It has a rich and fascinating history and Ghandi even visited, giving a speech out of the first floor window to the packed streets below.

The tallest building in Bethnal Green when it was built, Oxford House still commands fantastic views across the city. You can see the city proper, the financial district, the skeletal gas tower, the hospital and many more buildings that dominate the skyline.
