Established by hard knocks and tough as nails immigrants, Stepney makes no apologies. This unfiltered east London neighborhood’s no fuss, no frills attitude rewards those looking for a hardy atmosphere where the pubs are simple and the pints are tall. Although a few relics of its Victorian-era architectural past survive, brick apartment towers and terraced homes now characterize the neighborhood. Stepney’s stone churches and namesake green space provide solace from its lean surroundings.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
