Stepney House - townhouse with a luxury feel

Overview
Townhouse -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
London, England
The best way to describe East London is to say that it caters for everyone's wishes and has a really fascinating vibrancy. It even has its own language known as Cockney rhyming slang eg if you need some 'cash' a true Cockney would say ' need some sausage and mash' ? There is even an ATM withdrawal machine in Leytonstone that now offers its services using this slang, so if you want to see the balance of your a/c on the 'screen' it says 'Charlie Sheen' and if you want to take out £50 'Nifty', or for £30 it says 'Dirty', £20 'Horn of Plenty', £10 'Speckled Hen' & £5 'Lady Godiva'. The first festival celebrating the Cockney language and diverse culture was held first in July 2013 by the Cockney Heritage Trust and showed that Cockney is not 'brown bread',... Read more

About the neighbourhood
The old images of the East End of London in the blitz, with gangsters (Kray Bothers) and murderers (Jack the Ripper), poverty and gloom have been largely replaced with a vibrant hub of diverse and fun things to do and to see.
