Mile End is a vibrant urban landscape buzzing with students. Scape East is home to two restaurants, The Kitchen, which serves homemade food away from home, and Box Noodle, a fresh, fast and affordable PanAsian noodle bar. Shoreditch, Brick Lane, Hoxton and Spitalfields are a short bus ride away, and these areas are famous for their cafes, galleries, fashion, restaurants and nightlife. Stratford is only 5 minutes away on the tube, where you can visit the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park or Westfield Stratford City – Europe’s largest shopping centre with 268 high street and designer stores.
Victoria Park is within walking distance from Scape East, and Mile End Park and Regent's Canal are even closer, so you're always close to a relaxing green space. You can hire a bike from Scape or the nearby Cycle Hire docking station on Mile End Road. You can also take advantage of the Mile End Climbing Wall - London's original indoor rock climbing wall.
It's only 15 minutes on the underground to Oxford Street station, the world-famous shopping district at Oxford Circus and Regent Street. Soho and China Town are just a short walk from Tottenham Court Road. The District line serves Westminster station, where you can find the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. You can also reach Trafalgar Square (Embankment station), Buckingham Palace (St. James’s Park station), and the Science Museum, V&A museum and the Natural History Museum in South Kensington.
