De Beauvoir Town

More like a village than a town, De Beauvoir Town is filled with picturesque tree-lined streets and stunning Victorian properties. The environment is filled with artists, writers and creatives alike, who all seem to thrive in the space. Notable residents including poet Edmund Gosse and artist Sue Webster to name a few.

This is by far one of the best areas in Hackney for those looking for peace and tranquillity with such famous landmarks as the regal De Beauvoir Square and the atmospheric Regent’s Canal.

Property is highly sought after in this quaint area due to the generations of families that have settled down here and come to love the place. Prepare to pay a premium to call yourself a resident though.

The neighbourhood is populated with a number of fantastic eateries such as the De Beauvoir Deli Company, The Towpath Cafe and Bread + Butter. Local pubs such as The Rosemary Branch, De Beauvoir Arms and The Scolt Head prove equally popular with locals as well as visitors.
