Victoria Park Market

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.

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.

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.

Hackney Picturehouse

Hackney Picturehouse

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

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'!

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.

The best burger in Hackney and delicious sides too!

Broadway Market

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.

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 takeover of the Overground at Hackney Central has been fantastic for the local area - there's proposals for Crossrail 2 at this station too!

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

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

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.
