"London's non-denominational Magnificent Seven burial garden, Abney Park cemetery is perhaps more renowned for the sheer amount of trees than its residents. Over 2500 trees are planted alphabetically in a perimeter around the park."

I love that there are lots of new businesses opening up along Stoke Newington High Street!

Chris Ball

Along Stoke Newington Church Street there are some lovely independent businesses, from florists, to coffee shops, to wine bars.

Clissold Park is the perfect place for a day out with the kids - there's animal enclosures, a lovely café and lakes to explore.

What locals say about N16

  1. The community is nice and it's easy to get around!

  2. I love Newington Green because of the close community and village atmosphere. The proximity to Clissold and Church Street is handy, but Newington Green has most of what you need. This part of Green Lanes is really changing for the better and it's an exciting place to go now!

  3. Stoke Newington has everything you can want in one postcode. Some of the best theatres, bars, and restaurants.

  4. Stoke Newington is a great distance from central London. The place is very relaxed, there are brilliant park and woodland areas to spot owls etc and the cafes, pub/bars and shops are great. It is also walking distance from Dalston and Hackney Central. Perfect spot for me!

  5. Stamford Hill is a quiet area.

  6. I live opposite wonderfully kept Clissold Park, which is great for running and taking a stroll around. There is a wide selection of cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from when the mood or necessity takes you. There is a good library with friendly librarians, an annual literary festival, good bus links to central London and the proximity of London Overground is very helpful too.

  7. I love the community in Stamford Hill!

  8. It's not far the city and offers much to do, while the streets are nice and attractive.
