Welcome to London LimeHouse

To Sir with love

If you google you will find he got off a bus in Watts Street and turned left into Reardon Street and went to the Dock entrance at vinegar street. The school is opposite now a health centre base. The entrance is gone but you can still walk into Portland Square.

To Sir with Love

Am I right in thinking that the late 1950s/early 1960s b/w movie "To Sir with Love" was filmed in the Limehouse area? As I recall the film starred Sidney Poiter and Judy Geeson with a supporting role by Patricia Routledge (who later played 'Hyacinth Bouquet' in "One foot in the grave"). Does anyone remember the name of the street where the school was located? I think it was one of the turnings off Wapping Wall, but I need to be corrected?

Limehouse Taverns

There are two lovely pubs in Limehouse. They are listed below:-

1: "The Prospect of Whitby";

2: "The town of Ramsgate.

Both taverns have a lot of fascinating history; sold real ale and good food; and seemed very popular. I would have visited both taverns more frequently, but I live in south-east London and can't get around so much as my health is in decline. However, the above taverns were very good.

Newell

Hello- I amd descended from James Edgar Newell- the Stepney councillor. He ran a cartage business from Burdett road in the twenties. Newell Street is named after him.

I have family details as he came from cambridgeshire where his family were Blacksmiths in Guilden Morden.

Wed Sep 06

Newell Street

Newell Street was named after my Grandfather James Edgar Newell who lived in Burdett Road and was a Stepney Councillor.He died in 1931 so the road might have been built about that time.

Limehouse - Safe

I've lived in Limehouse since 1980 and I now live on the Isle of Dogs. I can honestly say that Limehouse and the surrounding area is relatively safe however, you still need to keep your wits about yourself at night. Muggings, car break-ins and certain areas of the council estate may have some druggies so be careful. The area has changed alot and more recently I think it has got slightly worse but then it is not safe in any neighbourhood even Canary Wharf has its problems. I was brought up on a council estate in Limehouse so it is not a bad area in general. I hope this helps.

Sat Jul 01

Is Limehouse safe?

I'm thinking of moving to Limehouse in the very near future with my friend and my boyfriend but I know there are a lot of council estates around there, and then really nice places.

My boyfriend often works late into the night and comes home around 2/3/4 am, on a night bus, and i'm worried about him walking around the estates or otherwise at that time of morning.

How safe is Limehouse, honestly? I love the area but don't want to worry.

Thanks!

Tue Feb 15

It depends on what you like, Limehouse is very central and it has a clean side and a dirty side. Commercial road is good for driving into the city and there is the DLR, brit rail, and buses for transport which is good. If you dont have a car there isnt anywhere too close to buy food from any grocery stores. There are no cash machines other than one or two link machines. Its a bit of a nothing place really, not alot to offer. If you want somewhere which is nice and close to limehouse with stuff for general living, I would go to canary wharf where everything is accessable.

Cafe Rajistan

We'll second that - discovered it a month ago and we've been every week since. A world away from your bog-standard Tandoori House in every sense - from the decor and abstract art on the walls (none of your flock wallpaper here) to the video screens playing MTV-style Asian music videos, no dodgy jangly sitars! Food is excellent and inexpensive, and what a treat to see so many fish dishes. India has miles of coastline and great rivers, yet you rarely see fish on an Indian menu - why? Only criticism is that some of the creamier and coconut-ty sauces are too sweet. Well worth travelling for.

Mon Feb 02

There is a serious shortage of doctors and dentists in the area. The population has increased enormously in the past 10 years and there has been no corresponding increase in the number of health care providers. Those who work there cannot cope with the additional workload.

Places to eat in Limehouse

Loads of places. For example the new pub Narrow Street that used to be The Barley Mow & Bootys. Both on Narrow Strret in Limehouse - & both on the river with amazing views. There are also lots of good cheap curry places on Commercial Road towards Aldgate, Brick Lane is 5/10 mins away on the bus with loads of curry houses. Canary Wharf also has lots of places to eat & is easily walkable from Limehouse.

Tue Dec 02

Supermarkets

Or if you just want to buy food...there are supermarkets nearby - Tesco & Waitrose at Canary Wharf, Safeway in Wapping & Sainsburys in Whitechapel. The new Costcutter on Commercial Road opposite Limehouse DLR is very well stocked & useful - it even has organic food.

Tue Dec 02

Gill Street Health Centre

I would also recommend this.

Pool/Gym in Limehouse

St George's pool is on The Highway, 10 mins walk from Limehouse DLR. There is also a very nice cheap local authority gym at the John Orwell sports centre in Wapping. Canary Wharf has a Holmes Place.

Tue Dec 02

Do you know where Limehouse is?

Gyms well into the £60/70+ category, even with a work-related reduction. If you only want to pay £30/40 you are looking at the public gym in Greenwich (even has its own flume). But I think even that might cost more than that!
