On the doorstep of some of London's coolest neighbourhoods

"The arrival of the London Overground in Haggerston has really opened up this area for commuters."

Alexandra Lega

"Shoreditch's equally trendy neighbour, Hoxton has a well established arts and entertainment scene."

Nick Batten

"Shoreditch is to London now, what King's Road was in the '60s."

Where do Haggerston locals go?

Bread and Butter

Serving the best breakfasts in Dalston, lovely fresh organic food, amazing juice and great coffee. The tortilla with loads of cheese is a great hangover cure!

Broadway Market

Broadway Market is the exact place to go to experience the best of what east London has to offer, with its fantastic range of food stalls, restaurants, shops and pubs! If you go in the summer, be sure to grab a beer and head over to London Fields, where the standard BBQ doesn't exist.

Café Health

A lovely little Caribbean restaurant on Mare Street in East London. They offer the best jerk chicken along with other Caribbean dishes.


The only place in London to do a bacon doughnut... They also have amazing chicken and lunchtime deals in the week!


This place is great for brunches and lunches. They have a cabaret place downstairs so you really could stay all day if you wanted to!

Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium

Delicious afternoon tea in the company of adorable cats that live in the café.

Brick Lane

You'll be spoilt for choice along Brick Lane when it comes to curry houses! The deals that some restaurants offer are out of this world...

E. Pellicci

A local family run institution where you always feel welcome! This greasy spoon café is a proper traditional place with a buzzing atmosphere.


An incredible restaurant in east London. Bright yellow and tiny in size, it serves the best fried chicken with American-style sides, including the dill and pomegranate slaw, which is unreal! Booking is recommended...

Oval Space

A club based off Hackney Road where international DJs and live acts play regularly. It also has terrace parties in the summer.


I love a weekend walk along Regent's Canal with a glass of rosé from Towpath.

Geffrye Museum

If you can't face the crowds at London's bigger museums, head to this place for a quieter and nicer experience. This museum is all about the home throughout the centuries and the café sells delicious cakes too!

Pho House

After trying nearly all of the Vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road, this is by far the best. The setting is cool with graffiti style art on the walls and the service is excellent compared to other places on the same road. Complimentary tea and watermelon at the end is exactly what is needed after trying the extensive menu of pho, noodles, summer rolls and fresh fish.

Casa Blue

Try the goldfish bowls in this trendy cocktail bar on Brick Lane...

Beigel Bake

This infamous 24/7 bagel bakery is a firm favourite with both locals and tourists - the salt beef bagel is certainly hard to beat!

Please tell us about Haggerston

"In 1980 journalist Duncan Campbell entered (illegally) down an access shaft in Bethnal Green and attempted to cycle to Westminster. He was amazed at how well maintained and extensive the tunnels were under the city and had no need of a map as they were very well signposted."

  1. About Haggerston

    Haggerston is an area and a electoral ward in the London Borough of Hackney, in northeast London. It is bounded by Hackney Road on the south, Kingsland Road on the west, Middleton Road on the north with London Fields and Broadway Market on the east. In the 1990s a number of the area's more rundown housing estates were refurbished and some disused public buildings were privately converted as gated communities. The proximity to Hoxton and Shoreditch has made the area popular with students and workers in the creative industries.
