Hackney is the stomping ground for some the most dynamic creatives in the capital. A melting pot of cultures and styles, stroll along these streets and encounter every type of person you could imagine from androgynous hipsters to eccentric old ladies. What unites them is their love for their community: Hackney's residents are loud and proud.
This neighbourhood is rife with doers and makers – and as a result, Hackney showcases all that is innovative and exciting in London right now. Every bit of space is put to good use; pubs host experimental pop-ups, yards are filled with home grown veg. and disused warehouses are converted into creative studios. Hackney is a wonderland, of the unique and experimental.View all Hackney spaces
