Top 20 Hackney, London vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Only a decade or so ago, Hackney had something of a rough reputation but the area has seen a quite extraordinary regeneration over the last few years, and has now well and truly shaken off that reputation. Its name is now more likely to evoke the image of a hipster on a bicycle with a sourdough loaf stuffed in their satchel rather than anything else. Gentrification might not have been popular with everyone, but for visitors it's undeniably made this part of town a delight to explore, filled as it is with great independent restaurants, cafes and pubs. The green expanses of London Fields and Victoria Park are pretty unbeatable on a summer's day and be sure to check out Broadway Market and Victoria Park Village too, where you'll wander through leafy streets of period houses, and rub shoulders with London's hip young arts and media types.
