    Fiona - Bow, Yesterday
  • "Elena-Dana came as a cover housekeeper when the originally booked Housekeeper failed to communicate yet alone turn up. Due to the urgency of my situation to vacate my property the same evening Elena-Dana was called in as cover. She was prompt on arrival (which was reassuring given previous Housekeeper didn’t turn up) and also finished all requested cleaning and tasks before allocated time. She went above and beyond by also asking whether there was anything else she could help with given remaining c.30 mins. She thoroughly cleaned the fridge as an addition which was a massive help. Thank you for coming in, completing quickly and efficiently and saving my day!!"

Local Information About
East London

East London is generally defined as the seven boroughs east of the City of London, that are north of the River Thames; Tower Hamlets, Barking and Dagenham, Hackney, Newham, Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Havering. This area includes the postcode districts E1, E2, E3, E4, E5, E6, E7, E8, E9, E10, E11, E12, E13, E14, E15, E16, E17, E18, E20, E77 and E98, and is home to approximately 1.9m residents.

Some definitions of East London also include the South London boroughs of Greenwich, Bexley and Lewisham. Hoxton in Shoreditch is also considered part of East London, although it lays within the N1 postcode area.

East London has an abundance of local, national and international transport links with railway and underground stations including Stratford, Stratford International, Liverpool Street, Hackney Central, Mile End, West Ham, Dalston Junction, Bethnal Green and Woodford. East London is also serviced by City Airport, which is less than 30 minutes form the City and alongside Stratford International Train Station, provides access to the rest of Europe.

East London was heavily damaged in the Second World War, so post properties in the area are spacious post-war dwellings, with lots of loft-style warehouses and new build apartments.

Housekeep has hundreds of trusted local cleaners available in the East London area, including in Shoreditch, Mile End, Stratford and Hackney.
