Getting Around

Although the tube stations can easily be walked to why not try the number 8 bus (our favourite bus route). The nearest stop heading west is on Roman Road just past St Stephen’s Road and the route takes you through some of London’s coolest areas including Bethnal Green, Brick Lane, Shoreditch High Street and then onto Liverpool Street, Bank, St Pauls, Chancery Lane, Holborn, Tottenham Court Road and finally, Oxford Circus.


A walk to Mile End Station takes no time at all and the best route is along Cardigan Road to Tredegar Road turning right and then left into Coborn Road. Once in Coborn Road you will walk past, one of the best pubs in Bow (in our opinion), The Morgan Arms which was the Evening Standards Pub of the Year 2005. At the end of Coborn Road where it meets with Bow Road, Mile End station can be seen diagonally to your right.


Mile End station gives access to the Central, District and Hammersmith and City Lines so whether you’re commuting to the city or heading to the suburbs it’s easy.

Finally, Stratford is just one stop away and takes you to the new Westfield Centre, International train station and Olympic Park. The Overground, Jubilee and DLR can also be found here


Roman Road has always been known for its traditional street market which runs 3 times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Grab a cup of coffee in one of several café and coffee shops, enjoy some traditional Pie and Mash in Kelly’s and pick up some fresh fruit and veg from the superb green grocery stall on the corner of Cardigan Road.

Cardigan Road is tree lined and comprises on one side period property and on the other The Lord Cardigan Pub and a mixture of well presented maisonettes. On its corner with Anglo Road there is an exciting residential building project underway that will include a Tesco Metro.

The first recorded building on the site around 1862 was indeed a bakery and it was rebuilt in the 1930s. It was occupied by bakers John Ruskin in 1870 and in 1895, Johnson, Harry and Sons in 1926 and in 1938 by Mrs H Johnson.

In more recent times Anderson’s bakers traded from the address until the 1980s.
