- Shoreditch. “Shoreditch” is a byword for gentrification and its many consequences, good and not so good. Twenty years ago what was a working class area on the periphery of London’s financial district suddenly became appealing to creative companies for its cheap space in old factories and warehouses.
- Victoria Park. London’s oldest public park is in Tower Hamlets but bordered to the north by Hackney. In almost 90 acres, Victoria Park opened in 1845 and has been awarded a Green Flag every year since 2010.
- Dalston. Once gritty and down-at-heel, Dalston is cool and actually rather posh these days. But the area has defied the usual cycles of gentrification by holding onto its boisterous nightlife.
- Broadway Market. Bending down from London Fields to the Regent’s Canal, Broadway Market is a shopping street on the course of a Medieval droving route taken by herders into the City of London.
A former industrial hub, East London’s Hackney has undergone huge regeneration in recent years to become the city’s most liveable borough. Home to young creative types, it’s an area with strong community ties and is known for its great food and unmatched nightlife.
