Where do Victoria Park locals go?

Victoria Park

Victoria Park

Skateboarding through Victoria Park is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Possibly heading to Broadway Market after to find coffee and more than likely after a few skateboard tricks, a pharmacy.

Open every Sunday, you can enjoy a Sunday walk in the park and have a bite to eat and a pint in the middle of it! Great day out with family or friends on a nice and sunny day.

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.

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?!

Pavilion Café

Pavilion Café

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

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.

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'!

Hackney Fresh

Hackney Fresh

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

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.

Bistrotheque

Bistrotheque

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!

Hackney Picturehouse

Hackney Picturehouse

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

Patty & Bun

Patty & Bun

The best burgers in London under London Fields railway arches!

Café Health

Café Health

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

Hackney Walk

Hackney Walk

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!

Pub on the Park

Pub on the Park

On the border of London Fields, its a fantastic pub with a big outdoor area and reasonable drink prices too.

Why not explore the nearby areas of Homerton, Hackney, Bow, Clapton, Bethnal Green, Dalston, Stratford, Leyton, Limehouse and Maryland

"The American Dennis Severs captured a perfect recreation of what it would be like to live in the 17th century by turning this house in Spitafields into a "time capsule" of different historical styles that is now open to the public...including different smells for the different epochs!"

Bounded by canals and close to the Olympic Park, I often go running round Victoria Park.

Hackney Walk is the ultimate luxury shopping experience in East London.

I love walking along the Lee Navigation in Hackney Wick and looking at all the charming narrow boats.

What locals say about Victoria Park

  1. The park is amazing, the festivals, sports facilities and open green spaces are fantastic, but the 'village' is what makes our area. North of the park are period lined streets, centered around a wonderful hotchpotch of restaurants, cafes and boutiques. Pop down on a summer afternoon and you'll discover why this beautiful little village in the coolest area of London is the best place to live.

  2. The village feel, particulary on Lauriston Road with loads of restaurants, cafes and boutqiue shops. Also Victoria Park is such an amazing park to live next to, festivals in the summer, great place for picnics, great playgrounds and sports facilities.

About Victoria Park

Victoria Park (known colloquially as Vicky Park) is 86.18 hectares of open space that stretches out across part of the East End of London, bordering parts of Bethnal Green, Hackney, and Bow, such as along Old Ford Road, London E3 and Victoria Park Road E9. The park is entirely within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It is also used as a concert venue and hosts many festivals each year. This large park is reminiscent of Regent's Park, though much less busy, and is considered by some as the finest park in the East End. It is bounded on two sides by canals: the Regent's Canal lies to the west, while its branch, once known as the Hertford Union Canal runs along the Southern edge of the park.
