The lively east London suburb of Whitechapel has been a sanctuary down the centuries. And now it has become a neighbourhood with property for every taste and budget.<br/>Like all of the City’s eastern fringe, Whitechapel is hip, with Young British Artists such as Tracey Emin’s studio in nearby Tenter Ground and others. The most attractive of the local art scene is the leading contemporary Whitechapel Gallery. Tourists are stopping by for the guided bike rides to take in local graffiti sites, curry restaurants or to see Jack the Ripper murder locations.<br/>And Whitechapel’s business heart belongs to a varied range of fashion. Bangladeshi wholesale clothing shops line Commercial Road, Whitechapel Road and Brick Lane where the street signs are in Bengali script as well as English.
