The East End of London, also known simply as the East End, is an area of Central, East London and London Docklands, England; east of the Roman and medieval walls of the City of London, and north of the River Thames. The East End is the historic core of wider East London but is not defined by any universally accepted boundaries.
By the mid-1980s, both the District line and Central line were running beyond their capacity, and the Docklands Light Railway (1987) and Jubilee line (1999) were constructed to improve rail communications through the riverside district. Road links were improved by the completion of the Limehouse Link tunnel under Limehouse Basin in 1993 and the extension of the A12 connecting to the Blackwall Tunnel in the 1990s.
The extension of the East London line to the north, on the border between Islington and Hackney, provided further travel links in 2010. From 2019, Crossrail line 1 is expected to create a fast railway service across London, from east to west, with a major interchange at Whitechapel. New river crossings are planned at Beckton, (the Thames Gateway Bridge) and the proposed Silvertown Link road tunnel, to supplement the existing Blackwall Tunnel. The area is also home to a number of commercial and public art galleries; including the newly expanded Whitechapel Gallery.
The area has a huge range of shops, bars and restaurants to enjoy. East London can mean Canary Wharf to some and Wapping to another, so this part of the Capital has many different parts to it.
