Locale East London

Home of the East London Line as well as some of the more amusing bits of the District Line, sharing track with the peak-hour Hammersmith and City Line. The Central Line also goes through parts of East London splitting off into two lines at Leytonstone.

Traditionally East London is not thought well of by those from the North or West of London. It was quite severely damaged during the second world war, and East London has some of the worst bits of "Inner City" in London. However it also has some of the best bits of countryside too.

East London also has a bad reputation for a organised crime gained in the sixties with gangsters such as the Kray Brothers in control.
