Due to the East London Line extension, new transport links offer London on your doorstep. Haggerston overground station provides direct services to many important destinations including Canary Wharf and the West End in less than 30 minutes, London City Airport and Stratford for the nearby Olympic Stadium and Village. It also provides easy access to the south and soon the overground link will complete a loop of London.
There is a wide range of local schools, including community, independent and voluntary aided. Haggerston School is a renowned grade II listed building designed by the modernist architect, Erno Goldfinger whilst the non-denominational Bridge Academy has attracted more families to the local area with its newly built sixth form (completion expected in September 2012).
