Historically, Whitechapel is closely associated with the Jack the Ripper case of the 1880s. This was where many of the infamous crimes took place, and where amateur detectives still love to flock. However, rest assured, the area has come a long way since then.
Situated in East End London, the district is found in the borough of Tower Hamlets. Nowadays, it is a vibrant and highly multi-cultural place that remains one of the cheaper parts of the city. It has become a popular place for artists seeking a less costly alternative to Shoreditch. With house prices predicted to rise 25% in the next five years, cost is an important factor to consider when moving to London.
Located near some fantastic parts of central London, Whitechapel is only 3.4 miles from Charing Cross. With the Cross-rail train line due to open on 2018, there are many new investments being made in the area. Whitechapel is on the cusp of some important changes. Once this line opens, one can get to Canary Wharf in only 5 minutes.
