The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Hackney & Dalston

It remains one of the poorest boroughs in London, perhaps in Britain, but Hackney’s undeniable charms never fail to bubble to the surface; a busy, ragged, intensely multicultural, inner-city neighbourhood that never ceases to reinvent itself. It has a strong and vibrant street life, a growing art scene, and is a magnet for youth culture in the capital, with a good dose of the city’s best clubs and bars, and hippest hangouts. At its heart is a core of grand buildings – the extravagant Hackney Empire theatre, an imposing 1930s town hall and a new multi-level Picturehouse; there’s also tree-lined London Fields, and the market, bars and restaurants of Broadway Market, just a stroll away. Further west is Dalston, long-time home to a large Turkish community. There you find the cutting-edge Arcola Theatre and experimental music venue Café Oto. Wherever you go in the area, you won’t be far from a great bar, a good meal and a fun night out.
