As the home of creatives for decades, Hackney Wick’s vibrant modern history serves as the perfect backdrop for the thriving communities living and working in Fish Island today.
The Yard Theatre, located just moments from Old Smokehouse, hosts events and performances all year round, whilst musicians and DJs are drawn away from the mainstream venues in Shoreditch and have moved further east to Hackney to host their gigs in clubs and bars for those in the know.
Over 250 shops and 70 restaurants are what you’ll be greeted with, after a 25 minute walk, behind the doors of Westfield Stratford City.
As the largest shopping mall in Europe, here, you’ll find anything you could possibly need from groceries to designer shoes and everything in-between.
But this is no ordinary shopping centre. Westfield is a destination.
