The London Borough of Newham formed with the uniting of boroughs of West Ham and East Ham which formerly were a part of Essex. Established in 1965, the district of Newham now falls inside the county of Essex. The name Ham develops from the Old English word Hamm which translates to dry land between two marshes or rivers. The first mention of the borough “Hamme” occurs in the Anglo-Saxon charters and again as ”Hame” in the Doomsday book. The population in the Newham mushroomed during the 19th century with the influx of European migrators and Londoners from East end societies.
There are a number of exciting locations and attractions to view in your Newham car hire! Take a drive to the Emirates Royal Docks! Constructed in partnership with Emirates airlines, the cable car ride passes over the River Thames in London. Drop by Boleyn Ground (also called Upton Par) which served as West Ham’s home until 2016. The ArcelorMittal Orbit observation tower and sculpture is worth a visit and offers views from 114.5-metres high. Stretch your legs at the University of East London Stratford Campus which is a Grade II* listed building or get your blood pumping at the Lee Valley VeloPark cycling centre.
