Waste service strike

A number of Tower Hamlets Council frontline waste service workers and street cleansers will be going on strike from 18 September to 1 October due to a national pay dispute.  

Despite the council working to maintain services for residents, the strike will impact collections and cleansing across the borough. We apologise in advance for the disruption this will cause.

Eating and drinking

Tower Hamlets borough is situated along the banks of London's river Thames. Consequently this part of the East End has long celebrated the pleasures of eating and drinking by the waterside.

We can offer a very wide selection of waterside places to visit. From world class restaurants to friendly, traditional pubs, Tower Hamlets caters for all tastes and can suit all pockets.

Indeed, many places deliberately cater for all tastes and pockets, offering, for example, modestly priced wine by the glass for everyday purposes, but also top marquee champagne for those in a mood to celebrate.
