There is no city better in the sunshine than London with its green open spaces so with summer in full swing, Londoners are on the lookout for the ideal spot to soak up the sun.
Merchants Walk, the latest development from Peabody, London’s leading house provider, is situated just a short walk from a number of local hotspots and is perfect for its residents to enjoy the sunshine.
Situated within the Olympic regeneration zone of Bow, Merchants Walk is in the heart of an exciting new community, which gives residents full access to thriving east London. Merchants Walk is available through the London Help to Buy scheme, providing an affordable option for First Time Buyers to get on the property ladder without having to compromise on location.
For those looking to enjoy the summer from the comfort of their own home, Merchants Walk has beautiful landscape gardens situated in the heart of the development, a perfect place to relax with friends and family. Residents also have full access to private balconies overlooking tranquil public courtyards and with The Limehouse Cut close by, they can enjoy walks along the canal in the sunshine.
Sitting outdoors with a good, honest pint is one of the timeless joys of London. You can find plenty of trendy bars and pub gardens just a stone’s throw away from Merchants Walk, including The Widows Son (1 minute walk), The Angel of Bow (4 minute walk) and The Galvanisers (5 minute walk), all with outdoor seating.
If you’re looking for adventure, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is just 10 minutes by the DLR or an 8 minute bike ride from the development. This summer, the park is offering a number of activities such as Ride the Slide at the Arcelormittal Orbit as well as various water sports and cycling activities.
Merchants Walk is only a 20 minute walk away from Victoria Park, a hotspot for London’s most popular festivals. Enjoy a day or weekend of sunshine, music and food at Lovebox, Field Day and Citadel festival.
