Home > Newham


In the heart of east London lies the borough of Newham, an amalgamation of East and West Ham made in 1965, which has the largest collection of cultures of anywhere in the UK. Newham council even goes as far as to say it is the most culturally diverse region in the world.

Once the constituency of Tony Banks MP, Newham represents what is thought of as the traditional East-End: within the sound of Bow bells, the home of pie and mash, and once the stomping ground of the infamous Kray twins and their gang.

Like many other London boroughs, Newham's history has been shaped by local industry, civil disobedience and, of course, the wide range of settlers and migrant communities which give the borough it's multicultural image.

As well as being home to West Ham United, the borough is one of the five Thames gateway boroughs hoping to host London's Olympic bid in 2012.
