Lovely room in a 3 bedroom flat.
Whitechapel, whilst in Central London, seems to host an entire independent multicultural and multi ethnic nation reluctant to give in to gentrification. like most, I would not leave it for another area of London.
Public transport is extensive. Access to the different networks from the flat include the Tube (Underground), DLR and Overground at around 5 to 7 minutes walk.
Great link to all major landmarks in London.
