Hackney is best known for being an artistic hub for creative and alternative types from all over the world. Considered to be a part of Inner London, Hackney is an ethnically diverse borough offering a blend of traditional culture mixed with modern art in every nook and corner. Areas within Hackney, like Dalston, are known for excellent eateries, intense nightlife, and independent boutique shops. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Hackney is a pretty desirable residential area of London - particularly for young, artsy folk. If you plan on driving around London, you can book your Hackney car hire with Enjoy Travel.
Overview of Hackney
Much like the rest of London, Hackney experiences a temperate oceanic climate. It sees cold and dry winters between December and February with an average temperature of 45°F (7°C); and warm summers between June and September with an average temperature of 18°C (64°F). It also experiences consistent precipitation throughout the year. Very occasionally, there are extreme weather conditions like thunderstorms and tornadoes.
When to visit Hackney
The best time to visit Hackney would be from June to August, when there’s very little of London’s telltale rainfall. That’s also roughly when Hackney Carnival- Notting Hill Carnival’s more laid-back cousin - takes place. You can also enjoy Hoxton Street Market year-round, a weekend market which has fresh fruits, household goods, and clothing at reasonable rates. If it’s sunny outside, then grab a patio seat to enjoy a leisurely brunch.
What's nearby Hackney?
Take a stroll through Clissold Park
Start your day by taking a stroll at Clissold Park, popular among joggers, cyclists and nature lovers. This park is a multipurpose space designed for everyone. It accommodates a large playground for children to play in, a tennis court for middle-agers wanting to keep fit, and even an organic market garden. Grab a scone at the Clissold House Café to fuel you through a full day of sightseeing. As the day starts to get warmer, stop at the Museum of the Home to enjoy an interesting display of the changes that rooms and gardens have undergone over time. Learn about experiences of making and living in different homes, read a book at the library or head to the terrace garden cafe for a cuppa.
Green spaces & vintage shops
Right next to Dalston Station is Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, a community-run built on an old railway line. It is a peaceful green oasis situated in the midst of a busy junction. There is a beer garden inside, where live music performances are sometimes held. If you go, do make sure to get their elderflower cider. It is also very kid-friendly. Right next door is HJ Aris Antique and Cafe Bistro, a vintage furniture store that doubles as an eatery. What’s unique about this place is that most vintage stores have a look-but-don’t-touch policy, but this one welcomes you to interact with the art deco pieces with a drink in hand.
Eating out in Hackney
If you have never tried Ethiopian cuisine before, Andu Café offers tasty vegan dishes at very reasonable prices. For mouth-watering plates of Asian dishes along with your favourite cocktail, My Neighbours The Dumplings should be your next destination. Wrap up your day with some contemporary British dishes classics such as Cornish cod with Jersey royals at The Laughing Heart.
