And the Hoxtonites did beat their chests and lament, for it came to pass that their home was no longer a land of cutting-edge club nights, achingly fashionable heathens and illegal parties. Truly it is written that the dynamic arts and music scenes and bars have moved to the lands that lies beyond. We tell you where

I can't believe you've missed Green Street off your list of East London's finest streets! Not only does it host the feast for the eyes (and nose) that is Queens Market- cheap as chips and an aladdin's cave of goodies - but it also joined jewellery heavyweights Hatton Garden and Bond Street for London Jewellery Week this year, and is the sari shopping destination of choice for Cherie Blair, among other style icons.

I agree - E9 is the place to be by far - with the hidden gem that is "the Village" by the roundabout (we don't like shouting about it in case the tourists come) and within easy reach of the lovely Broadway Market and of course the park - the East End doesn't come much nicer than this. And everyone assumes Hackney is rough - you'd change your mind if you came here. We love it!

Agree whole heartedly with the E9 comment - frankly the best E post code there is for the very fact that it is omitted from run downs such as this. The real gem of the east end.

Since when did St. John Street become East London? It's no more part of "East London" than Holborn is part of "West London". Get a map.

You appear to have overlooked the 'E9' postcode which encompases, inter-alia, Victoria Park, the Crown Estate, fine restaurants, pubs, gastro-pubs etc. This is probably because it is an hidden between Mile End and Bethnal Green and made inaccessible to those that don't know by a complex one-way system.
