Hackney

Neighbourhood

Hackney

Hackney is home to London's most hipster and creative areas. It's also home to London Fields and on the borders of Victoria Park, one of London's oldest, more beautiful parks.

Coffee or Late Nights at Stage 3

Situated at Hackney Empire this homely venue is unsuspectingly cool. Serving up some of the best cocktails this side of town, wicked Indonesian food, great coffee from 7am & live music every Thursday.

Take a Stroll around London Fields

Not one of the biggest green spaces in London but it sure does have a lot to offer such as it's own Speakers Corner, weekly baseball games, prime spots for picnicking and of course the Lido.

Winter Swimming at London Fields Lido

This is one of London's only heated outdoor pools, so if you're looking to do some lengths even in the Winter months you can go here and get your swim on amongst this picturesque setting.

Eat your Heart Out at Broadway Market

You are spoilt for choice on Broadway Market. Some of East's best restaurants sit along this strip and thats beside the market stalls selling everything from groceries to hemp children's clothes.

Go Petting at the Hackney City Farm

If you're an animal lover like me you'll love this place. The staff let the animals wonder free allowing you to get as involved as you like. You can't take any home though, I tried.

Walk along the Regents Canal

A little bit of a trek from where you are but so worth the effort. Numerous bars and bistros sit along this stunning pathway and if you're feeling really fit you can walk the length of it to Camden!

Unlock your Curiosity at The Last Tuesday Society

This bizarre little shop offers something a little different for your evening fills. From taxidermy classes & live petting zoos to story telling & themed nights, there's something for everyone here.

On top of the World at Proof Rooftop

Not a regularly open venue but catch it with a pop-up residency or special event and you're in luck. Overlooking the park and kitted out like a magic garden this venue is something special.

Have a local ale from the London Fields Brewery

This place is slightly too cool for me, but when you're feeling confident head on over because the work that goes in to these smooth as butter beers is outstanding. They have a lovely garden too.

Catch a Concert at Hackney Empire

A stunning venue with a huge variety of shows from A look back on Motown, the Magic Flute and music nights from major artists including Rod Stewart and Rudimental.

Shop & Drop at Paper Dress Vintage

This vintage dress shop has recently moved over from Shoreditch (Lucky you) Moonlighting as a late night venue and a place to do workshops such as illustration life drawing, PD offers it all!

Red wine & Steak at Buen Ayre

This authentic and cosy little Argentinian restaurant serves up some of the most tasty cuts of meat along with traditionally big bottles of South America's finest. Indulge yourself, it's just so good!

The Lows

  • No bannister on the stairs makes for a nerving climb and descent.
  • Cast iron hob with external gas cylinder makes for a unique cooking experience.
  • Strictly no children allowed.
  • You can play the piano, but unfortunately the guitars are out of bounds.
  • The throws in the haberdashery cabinet are absolutely available to use! We just ask that they are folded and put back after a stay so they don't become moth food!

"This property has it's pros and cons. The pros far outweigh the cons and depending on the kind of person you are you're probably going to be thinking, 'Girl you crazy, this place is awesome' But for a small town Surrey girl like myself who really enjoys a farmers kitchen, it's not quite my cup of tea. Let me explain. The entrance is an instant wow factor with the stairwell dominating the majority of the space, the bedroom and bathroom are cosy and it's gothic decor is inspired. Home cinema set up with projector screen and surround sound throughout the apartment is also something worth noting, however the lack of stair banister and limited kitchen appliances are something you'd really need to be careful of. This place is beautiful and very much unique, but those wanting convenience would have to sacrifice this for the design. It's fashion before function....but then who needs to be functional on holiday? "
