Quite why this would be on TripAdvisor as an attraction is a puzzle. As parks go, it's reasonably well kept. Being the site of a former church, there'a a few pics of artefacts left over. Otherwise it seems to be a hangout for the local...More

Very definitely off the beaten track except for locals despite being on a main road, but well worth a visit. This used to be the site of St Mary Matfelon church, which had lime-washed walls giving it the white appearance after which the Whitechapel district...More

We were staying next to this park. In the daytime there were people drinking (but minding their own business), but the atmosphere was decidedly dodgy when it got dark. You wouldn't come here on a special trip and if you decide to stroll through it...More

I stopped by while on the way to Whitechapel Bell Foundry. The park was not very nice - trash everywhere and the grass was dead. I can't imagine taking a kid or a pet there, or sitting in the dead grass for a picnic.

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious
legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden
squares, these days you're more likely to catch a
