Turtle Bay

Great place for drinks and Caribbean food, where the customer service is impeccable and the decor inside is really nice.

The Village

Recently reopened, this pub is a great place to enjoy a drink sitting on a lovely, comfy sofa in the garden.

Enough to brighten any overcast day... Head over to this warehouse for a sensory overload. A crazy feast of colours with store signs and lights, it's a truly hipster place!

The largest independently owned cinema in the UK, it's a good place to hang out with your friends and enjoy a movie.

Aura Rosa

Serving afternoon tea on a Sunday at Mother's Ruin Gin Palace, I recommend the Guinness cake!

Wildcard Brewery Tap Bar

A beautifully simple place with beers brewed on site. A lovely laid back feel with the occasional live band playing!

Lee Valley Ice Centre

A fantastic place to hang out with your friends and have a good time ice skating or playing ice hockey. You can also book ice skating lessons for a reasonable price.

Mother's Ruin Gin Palace

A lovely range of gin cocktails made with any gin you can possibly think of!

Queen's Arms

A pub in Walthamstow Village that's always vibrant and buzzing; a great place to meet friends for Sunday lunch.
