Where do Victoria Park locals go?

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.

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'!

Pub on the Park

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

Hackney Fresh

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

Patty & Bun

The best burgers in London under London Fields railway arches!

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

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

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.

Pavilion Café

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

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!

The Advisory

The best burger in Hackney and delicious sides too!

COFFEE8

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

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.

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?!

Café Health

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

Why do you find Victoria Park a great place to live?

Local resident

"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."

"'Pig swinging' became a popular sport in the 1700s after it was invented when pigs were walked from London Fields to Smithfield Market. It involved greasing their tails, swinging them round their heads and hurling them to see who could throw them the furthest."

  1. 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.
