This attractive little pocket of Hackney has become one of the most desirable places to live in East London.

The area maintains a village-like atmosphere supported by the plethora of independent shops and restaurants dotted around the area.

Arguably the most popular destination is Broadway Market: a quaint little Victorian street that runs from the edge of the park to the Regents Canal.

It’s even said that Broadway’s Cat & Mutton was the inspiration behind the famous Eastenders pub, the Queen Vic.

On Saturdays, the food market is bursting with flavours, sounds, smells and activity. During the week you’ll see the locals wiling away the time in the 70 something cafes, restaurants, boutiques and galleries along the street.

The London Fields Park itself is certainly not short of action, with basketball courts, outdoor gyms, playground and the capital’s only 50-metre heated outdoor pool: London Fields Lido.

During the summer you might struggle to find a space to put down the picnic blanket due to the park's popularity, you won’t have to wander far to find a pint though with the Pub On The Park quite literally, on the park.
