Out and About

Hackney has a strong sense of identity and community that draws people to live and work here. That’s why, when it comes to looking for things to do, Hackney revels in offering you the artisan, the unique and the imaginative.

For shoppers, foodies and adventurous souls, Hackney is an endless source of inspiration and joy. It’s a treasure trove that entices people from all over London and beyond. For you, it’s right on your doorstep.

Did you know that Hackney has the largest expanse of green spaces in inner London, with over 300 hectares across an impressive 58 parks and gardens? Little wonder it enjoys the title ‘London’s greenest borough.’ In fact, 21 of these parks have been given the cherished Green Flag Award®, including London Fields, one of Hackney’s best-loved green spaces, just a cricket ball’s throw from Quadra.
