Life in East London


As the creative hub of the Capital, East London is the ideal destination for the world’s most innovative and creative minds to thrive.

Right in the vibrant heart of the neighbourhood, housed at the former Olympic site, sits Here East, the perfect base to discover East London’s creative heartland.

Boasting an exciting mix of green open spaces, sports venues, independent artisan retailers and a world-class cultural hub, Here East is the perfect place to embrace new adventures and get inspired.

Home to the lasting legacy of the 2012 Games, the site includes the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Lee Valley VeloPark and the iconic London Acquatics Centre, meaning world-class recreation is just a stone’s throw away, as is live competitive sport at the highest level. So, whether you want to watch it or dive right in, there is something for everyone.

A plethora of cafés, restaurants, shops, a central yard, and event space is also within easy reach, as is Europe’s largest shopping centre, Westfield Stratford City, offering everything from haute couture to a cinema, bowling lanes, food quarter and plenty of bars.

Here East is inspired by neighbouring creative community Hackney Wick. The digital labs and artist studios boast a Brooklyn, New York vibe, with the area dubbed as the ‘most desirable place to live and work in London’.

Here East is a vibrant hub of creativity, setting the stage for LMA’s new London campus.

LMA is next door to several leading Universities, including our partners Staffordshire University, startup entrepreneurs, tech giants and world renowned performers.

So if you’re looking for a vibrant, exciting new place to live, study, perform and explore, look no further.

Here East is now one of the best connected places in London, with excellent transport links meaning it couldn’t be easier to enjoy everything our capital city has to offer.
