Tower Hamlets brings together the best of London in one borough.
We are a young, vibrant, modern city, but our history comes from being the hamlets of the Tower of London.
This mix of old and new, combined with award winning parks, international cultural destinations, world class learning institutions and one of the largest economies in the UK, makes Tower Hamlets one of the most popular places to live, work, study and play.
We often have exciting giveaways and competitions on offer for our residents to enter for a chance to win some great freebies. These are made possible by our partners at some of London's best destinations - which are right here in Tower Hamlets!
This page lists current special offers and competitions. Sign up to our residents' e-newsletter to make sure you're always the first to find out.
