  • I've lived in Bow for 10 years and have had absolutely no problems at any time of day or night. However if you stray outside Bow, things can deteriorate quite quickly - especially south of Bow Church DLR. Bow itself has really improved a lot in recent years and the council does a good job of maintaining/improving the area.

  • Like all London areas you can have million pound houses next to council estates - same in Bow. Tredegar Square has several +£1m houses and less than 5 minutes walk away are several council estates. But in 7 years I never experienced any problems. E3 has so much going for it. Mile End Transport Hub, Vicky Park, Olympic Park, Westfield Stratford, Canals, Climbing Centre, Great Pubs & Eateries. Go and live there!
