Hackney Central

Guide to Hackney Central

Hackney is a place people fall in love with, it's edgy, artistic, and exciting. Mare Street remains Hackney Central’s busy and bustling local shopping street but a few steps away in the back streets, new cafés, bars and restaurants are thriving. The food scene is groundbreaking yet relaxed. Hackney is a mecca for fashion and fashion designers, from vintage fabrics to designer must-haves. The fashion hub in Hackney Central houses a fashion outlet for many well known fashion brands.

As well as fashion there is also the beautiful Frank Matcham-designed Hackney Empire theatre which shows a mix of comedy, opera, musicals, plays and community events. The Picturehouse across the street screens a mix of first-release and art house films.
