Houses & Flats to Rent in Leamouth
Sitting in a tight hairpin meander of the Bow Creek stretch of the River Lea, Leamouth is an area across two peninsulas; one nicknamed Goodluck Hope and the other Orchard Place. Considered both part of Poplar and Canning Town, Leamouth has long been a bit of a ‘forgotten’ neighbourhood. However, a flood of new development work has seen it voted 'The Best New Place To Live' by city planners, and the rented homes in the area are nothing short of stunning. Leamouth was historically a wharf but is today a thriving residential and commercial neighbourhood. It’s perhaps most famous for its Container City work-living spaces, made of bright, colourful, repurposed shipping containers.
