Limehouse is one of London's most Yuppie neighbourhoods. This riverside area of East London is a part of Tower Hamlets, a borough that incorporates the super rich banking area of Docklands. This used to be London's old Chinatown, but you're now more likely to run into rich bankers or cleaners working nights, than Chinese fortune-tellers. Housing in Limehouse is expensive, due to its proximity to London's main business district. Cheaper rooms in shared accommodation of around £150-170 a week are rare but available. Normally you can expect to pay anything up to £300 per week, or even more, for a room in either an older Victorian property or a modern riverside apartment. Living in Limehouse is convenient for studying at Greenwich University, Queen Mary University, Goldsmiths, London Metropolitan University or for commuting to universities in the centre. In terms of transport, it is connected to the wider city by Limehouse Station (DLR).
