A coffee shop with a difference! Great food, lovely staff, quirky décor and even better coffee, all in the heart of Blackstock Road. There's a lounge area and garden, complete with an air-raid shelter and table tennis, which is the perfect place to hide away from the hustle and bustle of Finsbury Park. It's more than a coffee shop, Blighty is a community.

Fresh and high-quality food, really friendly staff, great atmosphere and good prices. The sourdough pizza are delicious and they source local beers and seasonal produce.

This is a legendary late-night hotspot in Finsbury Park. It is open until 2:30am Friday and Saturday and has karaoke too.

"Fashioned on Stirling Castle, Stoke Newington Pumping station once supplied clean water to much of North London. Threatened with demolition in 1971, the residents got the building Grade II listed and it now hosts a very successful climbing centre!"

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

The classes run for one hour and have been planned to include singing, dancing, arts and crafts, music and story telling time. The Olé Kids curriculum was developed through years of observing children and what they like doing at different stages cognitively, emotionally and physically. They picked out the best elements of children's classes and coupled it with our knowledge, research, tons of love and respect for children and our endless passion for creating a Spanish speaking community.

Stoke Newington is a district in the London Borough of Hackney. It is 5 miles (8 km) north-east of Charing Cross. Stoke Newington can be roughly defined by the N16 postcode area (though this also includes parts of Stamford Hill and the almost extinct district of Shacklewell). Its southern boundary with Dalston is quite ill-defined too. For one small district, Stoke Newington is endowed with a generous amount of open space. To its north, there is the extensive West Reservoir, now a non-working facility, but open for leisure and surrounded by greenspace. South of there is Clissold Park, an extensive swathe of parkland complete with a small menagerie, aviary and Clissold Mansion, a Grade II listed building. Stoke Newington is a very multicultural area.
