Estate Agents in Bow will be the first ones to advise you to rent or buy in this popular area due to its thriving community. Historical properties, industrial past and recent regeneration make Bow a mix of new and old with a traditional British feel. Read on for more information.


First of all, to assess an atmosphere of a place it is important to address the history of the place. Bow traditionally was an industrial area, predominantly populated with large warehouse buildings. However, after the regeneration of the area for the London Olympics, these large industrial buildings were turned into fashionable open plan flats. Properties like these are perfect for professionals looking for modern flats, but at a lower market price than Central London. Furthermore council flats were refurbished and replaced by flats also. This made Bow a more fashionable place to live, as it attracted a variety of buyers from professionals and young couples.

Any estate agent in Bow will tell you that Bow properties are extremely varied. There are a variety of historical properties in Bow, such as Georgian townhouses on Tredegar Square, which give a diverse atmosphere to the area. These types of property attract different buyers, such as families who are looking for a property with culture and history rather than modern flats, most popular with younger professionals. These old brick, Georgian buildings, combined with tree lined streets create a typical British feeling to the area, giving the area a historical, cultural atmosphere.
