The Kray Twins lived here
This is where Ronnie and Reggie Kray grew up.
Location: 178 Vallance Road, Bethnal Green, London
Description: Ronnie and Reggie Kray were born on 24 October 1933 in Hoxton, East London, and the family moved here when they were 6.
The twins first attended Wood Close School in Brick Lane and then Daniel Street School.
It was a small, terraced house without a bathroom, and the toilet was located in the back yard.
The area has been substantially redeveloped and the house is long vanished.
