Haggerston’s endearingly worn-in atmosphere can be attributed to its motely mix of progressively designed apartment complexes, orderly cafe counters, and meticulously boarded up windows. Sharing the same offbeat attitude as nearby Shoreditch, artists and students often congregate in Haggerston—a neighborhood known for its laissez-faire attitude where unpredictability is expected. High-end neighborhood hunters take note: this northeast London locale is better suited to those who appreciate a graffiti-friendly aesthetic and an everyday, multicultural community.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Redeveloping Along Regent's Canal
It is a perfect place to enjoy East London bars, restaurants and art or design galleries and shops. Going to the center of town is very quick and easy with the Haggerston Overground."
Trendy Cafe Culture
You can feel the artistic energy flow in the neighbourhood, especially in the Broadway Market street with all those awesome artsy coffe shops. [...] we are definitely back for more next year!"

The Heart of Haggerston: Broadway Market
Located with the cafes, bars and restaurant of Broadway Market, the open green space of London Fields and it’s famous Lido (outdoor swimming pool) and Regents Canal all on the doorstep. The Saturday Farmer’s Market is not to be missed; and if the nearby bars of Shoreditch and Dalston didn’t get the better of you, Columbia Road’s Flower Market is only a 5 minutes walk."
Neighborhood Green Space: Haggerston Park
Hackney City Farm
As others have said, good location if you want to check out East London - next to Haggerston overground (I did not really even hear the train) and very close to the Regents Canal."
