Hackney was once a relatively forgotten East London suburb, but it has since transformed into one of London’s most exciting and fastest growing areas. Recent years have seen the arrival of many creative industries and new businesses in the borough as a result of improved infrastructure. Hackney is now one of the most popular places in London for property investors, as it has so much to offer a diverse range of people.
In the last few years, Hackney has attracted food lovers with a range of creative and innovative eateries and farmer’s markets. It has a thriving arts and fashion scene, and has drawn an influx of creative professionals. This has led to the introduction of exciting restaurants, museums and shopping facilities that attract people from all over the city.
Hackney is now firmly linked with some of the leading designers in the fashion industry. It is the home of various exciting pop-ups, and the Hackney Fashion Hub which is due for completion this year is set to cement its reputation as one of the most important and popular retail destinations in the capital. The new buildings that will house the hub have been designed by an award-winning architect. The project will not only create mass new employment opportunities; it will physically regenerate the area, and is expected to result in large numbers of renters relocating to the borough.
In spite of the fact that Hackney is close to the city, it has many incredible open spaces and parks which make a substantial contribution to its popularity. Cycling has grown to be more popular in Hackney than any other London borough, and it offers a multitude of fantastic routes to explore on two wheels.
London Fields offers a cricket pitch, a heated 50m lido and cafe, tennis courts, BMX track, designated barbecue areas and a picturesque meadow the size of a football pitch. A cycle path runs from the park to Broadway Market and it has a railway station connecting it to Hackney Downs and Liverpool Street.
