STOKE NEWINGTON AREA GUIDE


Stoke Newington Guide

Centuries of campaigning have helped make Stoke Newington one of London’s most vibrant, community-minded, independent and green neighbourhoods.

Whether you’re a history buff, a foodie, a nature-lover or a shopaholic, our area guide to Stoke Newington gives you the inside track on where’s best to go… from a local’s perspective.

It’s thanks to the dogged determination of locals to protect and improve the area that Clissold Park wasn’t lost to developers in the 1880s, that the East Reservoir was converted into a nature reserve (2016) rather than filled in and built on and that a Sainsbury’s superstore wasn’t built on the south side of Abney Park (2015).

The area offers almost every nationality of food, has some buzzing markets and most businesses are small, independent and full of character.
