Tower Hamlets ‘Did you know?’

  • The borough of Tower Hamlets covers much of the traditional East End and lies adjacent to the east side of the City of London and on the north bank of the River Thames.
  • The earliest apparent use of the name ‘Tower Hamlets’ was in the sixteenth century, when the Constable of the Tower of London commanded the Tower Hamlet Militia as the Lord Lieutenant of Tower Hamlets. The Hamlets of the Tower paid taxes for the militia in 1646.
  • There are over 100 parks and open spaces in Tower Hamlets, ranging from the large Victoria Park to numerous small gardens and squares.
  • Tower Hamlets was one of five host boroughs of the 2012 London Olympics, and the artistic director of the opening ceremony, Danny Boyle, lives in Mile End.
