STOKE NEWINGTON FACTS >> HERE <<
There are few places in London that offer the zest, charm and charisma of Stoke Newington. Church Street is the area’s lively epicentre, with packed-out bars and pubs never too far away. Stokie’s shops overflow with indie labels and vintage goods and its restaurants are noteworthy for their diversity as well as their quality. Of course much of N16’s success is down to the remarkably strong presence of independent business in the area, making it a truly distinctive part of the capital.
The entrance to the beautiful Abney Park Cemetery is located on Church Street, giving you no reason not to pop in if you’re in the area. This lovely green park is now a nature reserve and arboretum, but still retains the spooky, overgrown atmosphere it has had since the Victorian period, when it was a cemetery for non-conformists. It’s also a great spot for dog walking, being very canine-friendly.
Church Street actually boasts another park, too, this time on the western end of the Street.Clissold Park is much more groomed than Abney Park, and features a lake and a deer enclosure. Clissold Park Cafe was recently refurbished and is most definitely worth a visit – when the weather is nice, the stately steps outside are perfect for relaxing and watching the world go by with a big slice of cake.
Stoke Newington may not be on the tube, but did you know that you can get to Liverpool Street in just 15 minutes? For what it lacks in underground transport, the area more than makes up for with trains and buses. Richmond and Clapham Junction are easily accessible by train, while the Overground at Dalston Kingsland isn’t too far away. The buses are particularly well connected – the 73 goes through London to Victoria, while the 76 and 243 both go to Waterloo and pass through Old Street and Farringdon on the way.
A few minutes’ walk north of Church Street is the West Reservoir, where you can learn to sail, kayak or try many other types of water sports on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. You can even swim in the reservoir, if you’re feeling brave! They also have a lovely cafe overlooking the water.
Stoke Newington locals will insist on referring to their neighbourhood a ‘village’ – but it’s not often you stumble across a village as diverse and as vibrant as this. ‘Stokey’, as it’s fondly known, is a compelling blend. Not as painfully hip as Shoreditch nor as edgy as Dalston, and without the plummy-posh gloss of Islington, it’s a laid-back, creative and multicultural place that offers the best elements of all the neighbouring districts, peppers them up with a dash of spice, and wins fierce loyalty from its inhabitants. And teasing aside, the ‘village’ epithet isn’t totally preposterous, either; unlike most other London neighbourhoods, here independent shops, restaurants and pubs rule the roost and there’s barely a chain to be seen). Two lively main thoroughfares (Church Street is funkier, the High Street grittier) form the hub of the community; meanwhile, what seems like the entire local population hangs out in Clissold Park on sunny summer afternoons. You’ll rub shoulders with yummy mummies and edgy eccentrics, Spanish anarchists and bibulous barflies, bookish types and Turkish musicians, taxi drivers, teachers and street-smart kids. Quite simply, if you’re looking for a lively and mixed London neighbourhood with lots of good places to eat, drink and shop, Stokey’s pretty hard to beat.
Stoke Newington has long been associated with radicalism and Nonconformism. Dissenters of different stripes who have called the area home include Daniel Defoe (after whom a local pub and a local street is named), the early feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, and Salvation Army founder William Booth. In the 19th century Stoke Newington had the largest population of Quakers in London and quietly prospered as a middle-class suburb. With increasing poverty and large-scale immigration after World War II, however, its character began to change, and by the 1960s and 1970s the area was a hotbed of radical and anarchist politics. Famously, 1971 saw the arrest of ‘the Stoke Newington Eight’ – accused, as members of the so-called ‘Angry Brigade’, of bombing and planning to bomb the homes of various establishment figures. Since the 1990s the area has seen gentle but relentless gentrification, its ramshackle squats and anarchist cafés giving way to upscale restaurants and artisan bakeries. Despite it all, however, Stoke Newington manages to retain its laid-back, libertarian edge.
