Mile End - Are there any Pet Friendly House/Flat shares or bedsits out there?!

I am a 20 year old non-smoking male attending QMUL in September later this year. I have been given an offer on the conditions that I achieve an overall of 65% in my foundation year. I have already averaged a 71% and will therefore definitely be attending this university. I can hold a conversation will almost anyone and find it easy to get on with 99% of people, and would be more than willing to pull my own weight around the house i.e. cleaning duties etc. Only problem is that I have a cat that I MUST bring with me. She is a fully trained house cat who never goes outside (only in the summer to roll around). She is extremely content and compassionate and I have had no problems with her!! I would prefer someone who loves cats, but she would not pose a problem if you were unsure as she does enjoy her own company. Any information whatsoever would be valued highly, so please contact me here

I am moving to Mile End. So, I would like to do a trial with your best senior team.

I have a good sense of anticipation and have a good view of the game. I can play in central defense or midfield.

What's the level of your best team senior, please?

If your roster is already full, I am agree to participate only at the trainings.

If you are interested, can you give me the days, hours and adresses of the weekly trainings?

You can answer at this adress:

Brought up in Mile End - Tredegar Terrace

I lived in Mile End

This was from 1955 to 1965 though. It's changed a great deal since then so I'm told. You can look at it on the online maps and it will show you the street now. I think where my grandad had his soft drinks factory is now called Tredegar Mews.

Hi Laura,

Interesting choice of pets! You could try me when you know if you've got in. I rent a room each year to a QMUL student for £360 a month inc. bills. I've had 3 guys in a row so a girl would be a pleasant change. I live in Walter Besant House, Bancroft Road (right next to QMUL, same road as Uni bar).

If you're interested e-mail

Any pet friendly flats/house-shares?

Hi, I will find out in mid-August if I have got into QMUL and will be looking for either a one bedroom flat or some form of house-share in the area. I come with 6 ferrets who are all lovely animals, and contrary to popular belief don't smell (mine don't anyway...I have a sensitive nose so keep them smelling nice!). They are only allowed out under my supervision, sleep for around 20 hours a day and are in a very secure cage when I'm not around. If anybody out there knows of anything going please let me know! I'll be ready to move in from mid-September.

Life Drawing in Mile End on Thursday nights

60 yards from Stepney green station there is a place where you can Draw, Draw and draw for about £5 a head for 3 hours. As long as I bring a few friends sometime and nothing else because we share the cost. Yesterday the model was a formidable Arabic curvy and flexible model, the music was so relaxing, tony and Steve so attentive and helpful, people so friendly, poses amazing and beer on the tap, I simply wonder if It wasn't a dream. Today I went to meetup.com/lifedrawingsociety and it wasn't they do it everywhere in London in absolutely perfect locations.

I had to let you know, let's bring our pencils and change the world to a better one.

St Barnabas Church, Grove Road,

St Barnabas Church, Grove Road.

Not sure about the pre-christian thing.. I have walked past this church many times in recent weeks. The pentagram looks like a later edition to an existing round window, the stones around the window appear to be a different colour to the existing masonary.

I doubt you'll ever see this response.. I can't tell how long ago you posted it. Hope this helps anyway. I found your post searching google for similar answers to yourself. scribla_ AT hotmail.com

Mile End is OK for safety

I lived there for 10 years without any problems. As far as the East End goes it's quieter and safer than most areas.

I ordered the "sashimi bento" and got four slivers of dried up crusty fish, some brown lettuce, a mound of rice and a quarter of an orange. I said immediately that I wasn't going to eat this - they maintained the fish was fresh and made me pay anyway. I repeat, ONLY A FOOL WOULD CONTEMPLATE EATING HERE.

Arbour Netball Club, mulberry sports centre, it's off commercial road, not far from watney market, 339 bus from mile end or D3 from bethnal green both a short walk away or the 115 0r 15 buses from commercial road takes you right there. Call them on ********2.

My father was born in No. 53 in 1901, and my Mother born in No. 19 in 1902.

It was Mile End Old Town then, and I believe that it is now called Stepney.

Evening Courses

Hi all,

Is there anywhere in Mile End that does evening courses? Back home in Dublin the local school would do courses on things like guitar, yoga, etc. and I thought there might be something like that here.

I was hoping to find a car mechanics course. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks :)

mile end park has a new gym, which opened last year. there is also a fitness first in Bow Wharf....which aint great. However, there are 2 great yoga studios - one on Roman Road (BODYWISE) and one on Bethnal Green Road (YOGA PLACE)

Mon Jun 04


It is not a pleasant place to live - people, be honest...Statistics ? I would not rely on it...To close to a junky place of London. My employee was seriously beaten there - his vehicle trashed and his vitness ( a girl) scared veeery badly... And I am scared of this place too. Daytime all London is pretty, but nights. ..Not Tower of Hamlets , not Mile End...

Where is the turkish bath, and how much is it, and for how long. Are towels supplied, thanks.

Thu Mar 01

You can't miss the Mile End Leisure Centre, which is on Burdett Road, ie. go south from the big Mile End crossroads towards Canary Wharf. It's a one-yr old council run centre with brand new facilities. For yoga there are several places. Google Bodywise, The yoga place on the Roman, or there are the quiet space and the more expensive but worth-it Canary Riverside Holmes Place and the Reebok Gym, both in Canary Wharf.

But Matsu has always seemed v. unauthentic to me compared to other Japanese food places. I'm Chinese and the food tastes more Chinese than Japanese - esp. since the kitchen staff are Chinese - it hasn't convinced me. I've been quite a few times, every time thinking that I should never go back, though I ended up giving in because of my Japanese food cravings. Not any more!

Transport links to town are good, with Mile End and Stepney Green stations within 5 minutes of QM. The #25 bus (a 24-hour bus) takes you straight into town via Liverpool St. and a 10 min walk up to Bethnal Green will allow you to catch the #8 bus (also a nightbus), which goes via Shoreditch/Brick Lane... Shoreditch, Hoxton and Old Street are within easy travelling distance. For live music, there are bars/clubs in Shoreditch, Bethnal Green and on Whitechapel Rd that are pretty handy.

The area as a whole is a mixture of some nice bits and some not quite so nice bits, but in my experience, I haven't had any problems... I have numerous friends in the same postal area who similarly have not had any security/safety problems either, except one or two in Hackney...! Mile End Park/Regent's Canal make for a pleasant atmosphere during the day, but it's generally a good idea to avoid it at night. But the streets around Mile End Road and Bethnal Green are busy 24/7, and are generally safe.

Mon Aug 14


I work at QM and have lived in Mile End for 4 years. Around the Uni, there are alot of bars, pretty much to suit any taste - ranging from expensive gastropubs (like 'The Morgan Arms' to the comfy boozer 'The Coborn Arms', to the student favourites 'La Luna' and 'The Hayfield' (the local 'Scream' bar...), to proper East End pubs, as well as the famous 'Palm Tree' bar in Mile End Park...) The QM Student's Union is usually a hive of activity during term time, with it's own nightclub which is open every weeknight... Some nicer/trendier bars can also be found around Victoria Park (which is 15 mins walk away from Mile End tube, 20 mins from QM), and also a couple in Bethnal Green. A walk up Regent's Canal will also lead you to Islington... the #277 bus also goes there from Mile End, where there are numerous bars/clubs etc....

The chucrch was St Barnabas Bethnal green on the corner or grove road. The pentagram the "right" way up is a symbol of King David. It is not a secrect sign or satanism in the church and there is no hawksmore relation... Just a victorian revival or early christian symbolism.

Help finding church with pentagram

Hello fellow people of Mile End. I saw a church place in a gardening show called the city gardener, show was shot at Mile End, Now this church had a pentagram etched in stone and quite big. Can someone help me by naming this place and where I might find some information on it in regards to history and the point why there is a pentagram there, I guees it goes back before the christain faith as I have heard that it was a symbol used before this time amonst believers of God ??? I would like to extend my knowledge to the truth and what is this on this churh place???

Mile End - new view

Many views on Mile End are based on the grotty view that greets you as you leave the tube station. However, take a stroll up Grove Road, past the beautiful Ecology Park and Gardens, go via the legendary Pineapple Pub where the locals gather for late night jazz sessions and everyone is welcome, stop off for Londons best fish and chips and The Britiannia then on to modern Bow Wharf development which includes a gym, shops and bars - not forgetting the great nights to be had at Jonguleurs comedy club.

If you still aren't convinced a short stroll will bring you to the stunning Victoria Park - make sure you walk round the fountains.

Mile End may not be Chelsea, but it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of most of London - plenty of well kept parks, canals and wide open spaces - and all just 5 minutes into Bank. Enjoy!

mile end safety

Mile end is not the nicest area when you look at it it is quite grey but I lived for more than a year and never had any problem even if I used to have to come home after midnight or go to work very ealy in th morning I thinkit is a really safe area, well better than Elephant and castle where I used to live before and someone had been shot dead the very week end I moved in my flat there!!

Lots of student and young peolple live in mile end and it is really easy to go to stratford or central london from there I am sure you'll love it

Its ok

I've been living there for nearly 3 years & I've never had any trouble. There is a tube and several buses - two 24 hour buses pass. There are shops open late & it's always busy so it doesn't feel too scary coming home late at night. Just be aware & behave sensibly in the same way as u would in any urban area. It's absolutely fine during the day. The residents are a mix of students, middle class professionals and working class white and bengali people with a minority of other ethnic groups. Most people seem ok. I get on fine with my neighbours. Local shopkeepers are friendly & helpful. I've never had any problems living there, there are lots of shops and it's very easy to get to Canary Wharf, the City and the West End. The area is also well lit. The canal & park is great & you must visit the Palm Tree pub it's brilliant. The Morgan Arms is good too. They are building a new swimming pool/ sports centre in January too so there's plenty of things to do in the local area.

Wed Nov 16

is alright

AND parts of it are nice...I would not call it dodgy....
