I live in Australia and am currently writing a story. It is situated in The East End near the Thames. I would really appreciate if you could tell me the names of some ROUGH areas around East End within walking distance to any part of the Thames. Your help is much appreciated.

Wapping, Limehouse, Cable Street and Shadwell all had their rough bits... Limehouse was London's original Chinatown, tho' the area now is becoming rapidly gentrified, and Chinatown is now reallly in the West End of London.

A word of warning... SE London - i.e. the areas south of the Thames - really aren't the East End: so Bermondsey and Deptford, for example, altho' they had their rough bits can't be included if you really <mean> East End. Purists will get at you if you do this!!

Good luck with the novel
