Take a walk around Three Mills Island

London's largest film and television studio is found just to the South of the Olympic workings of Stratford, based around a tidal mill on Three Mill Island, in Bromley-by-Bow, that can trace its history back to before the Domesday Book.

In the area, Riverside Green and Three Mills Green, offer two open spaces worthy of exploring, and though access has been limited at some points due to pre-Olympic works, they are still possible to wander, if a bit more difficult to access.

The stunning Grade I Listed House Mill, built by a Huguenot family in 1776, is a particular highlight, is open to the public at some times of the year, but more on that another time.
