The appeal of Hackney lies in its enduring integrity. Nestled in East London, Hackney’s up-and-coming atmosphere stays honest to its creative identity.
Stylish, edgy and unquestionably cool, Hackney is a tapestry of diverse cultures, stitched together with international cuisines and a sense of community. Less about following the crowd, Hackney sets trends – its vogue residents are tastemakers and innovators. Although its industrial legacy has been retained in its architecture – factory and warehouse conversions abound – it has been transformed into a creative epicenter. Artists of all types flock to its vintage boutiques, adventurous restaurants and chic coffee shops. In this part of East London, the locals swap brunch for markets. Homemade pastries, artisanal spreads, organic produce – whatever you need, you’ll find a stall that’s sure to sell it. Hackney promises adventure, with a surprise on every corner and an energy as reinvigorating as your morning coffee.
