Hackney Picturehouse

A great cinema that shows a lot of special screenings and q&a sessions, as well as popular Hollywood films.

Swing Patrol Victoria Park

Swing Patrol Victoria Park

I love the beginner swing dance classes at The Royal Inn on the Park every Tuesday. The classes are fun, the teachers and students are friendly and the dancing is great! A great way to meet new people, get some exercise and, of course, learn to dance.

The best burgers in London under London Fields railway arches!

The best burger in Hackney and delicious sides too!

London Fields Lido

London Fields Lido

Perfect for a fun day out, especially in the summer, this outdoor pool in Hackney's London Fields is one of London's last remaining lidos. It is open all year round and is, of course, heated. Why not grab lunch from either one of their two cafes after an exciting dip?!

COFFEE8

I always make a quick pit stop at this coffee van on the Narrow Way in the morning.

Diddy's

Diddy's

Diddy's, a café by day and bustling bar by night is a cultural hub situated on the corner of Mare Street and beck road. Just a stone throw away from London fields, this bright and light space offers everything from coffee to their signature cocktails at reasonable prices creating an environment where patrons feel valued and where you "can have a night out without feeling like you have spent all your rent money" owned by Diddy herself.

The upcoming home for fashion designers. Hackney Walk is a fashion district located within East London. It is a new ultimate luxury shopping experience that consists of many major and luxury designer brands. Hackney Walk is a trendy hub for great urban food, leisure and community activities. It is amazing, as Hackney is such a diverse and energetic area in London!

Café Health

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

Chesham Arms

Chesham Arms

A revival of an old local boozer, residents fought hard to prevent this building being turned into flats and won after it was granted to be an 'asset of community value'!

Pavilion Café

Pavilion Café

A great place to grab a coffee, freshly prepared snacks or cake, while overlooking one of Victoria Park's lakes.

Hackney Fresh

I often pop in to this fruit and veg shop for their fresh produce and a coffee. Very handy!

The Chesham Arms

The Chesham Arms

Enjoy a pint while sitting round the toasty fire - this pub was saved from development by the local community, making it a lovely local place for food and drinks.

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!
