The "Red" church, as it was once known, was built in 1844 by Edward Blore, a master architect of his day who completed work on Buckingham Palace when it was expanded, restored Lambeth Palace and worked on Westminster Abbey & St James' Palace. The church of Saint James the Great was constructed between 1840 and 1844; designed by E. Blore in an Early English style.
Located moments from Brick Lane, one of the East End's best-known streets, with a colourful history and many different communities passing through over the years. The area has seen a rise in popularity and regeneration over recent decades and has an urban, shabby-chic appeal; renovated warehouses, independent shops, artisan coffee houses, highly rated restaurants and reclaimed vintage stores encourage lots of "hipster" interest. Columbia Road Flower Market, Spitalfields and Whitechapel are all close by as well as Westfield Stratford shopping centre and some fantastic green escapes. Weavers Fields, the largest green space in Bethnal Green, is located 200m away. Further afield there is Haggerston Park, London Fields, Victoria Park - voted London's favourite! - and Queen Elizabeth's Olympic Park a very short tube ride away.
Transport links are outstanding, with Shoreditch High Street station close by, as well as Aldgate, Aldgate East and Whitechapel station (Crossrail) within walking distance. There are a number of bus routes plus Bethnal Green Underground station taking you into and out of the City and beyond.
