Hotels in Stoke Newington
Situated in North London just five miles from the centre of the capital, Stoke Newington is a desirable district in the Borough of Hackney. Book a Stoke Newington hotel with us and immerse yourself in this urban destination with a village vibe.
An urban village
Stoke Newington has a character and ambience all its own. Eschewing the homogenous high street look and feel of most towns and cities, Stoke Newington is a hive of independently-owned shops, bars and restaurants. It even has two churches both called St Mary's.
The historic parkland of delightful Abney Park not only has a nature reserve but it's also the location of a Victorian cemetery - one of London's very best. Finsbury Park and Hackney Downs are both within walking distance, as is Clissold Park, a community park which was opened in 1889 and holds a Green Flag. The grounds contain a river, organic food growing area, fountains and animal and aviary enclosures. And at its heart is a beautiful Grade II listed building, Clissold House.
Water of life
A 35-minute walk north east from the centre of Stoke Newington takes you to a group of reservoirs, which supply much of London's water. An excellent location for fowl-spotting, these bodies of water are host to teal, goldeneye, goosander, a wide variety of gulls, tufted ducks, great crested grebes and much more. A little further north, the reservoirs provide anglers with the chance to land a sizeable English carp or two.
Gunners and Spurs
North London's sporting colossi, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, are the nearest professional football clubs to Stoke Newington, and both The Emirates and White Hart Lane are within easy reach.
Eating and drinking
The range of cuisine in the borough is extremely cosmopolitan. For example, you'll find lots of Turkish eateries, and Mangal Ocakbasi Restaurant, an open charcoal grill, has a Time Out award to its name. Beyond Retro is a chic, bohemian enterprise that sells own-label and vintage fashions. It also has a café serving great coffee, tasty sweet treats and savoury dishes. For more excellent coffee plus piratical shenanigans, The Ship of Adventures is a popular café that is ship-shape and, quite literally, ship-shaped. A real hidden treasure, you might say. Church Street is the lively centre of the borough where you'll find many of the pubs and cocktail bars offering up DJ sets and live music.
There are very few chain stores in Stoke Newington, and that's the way residents like it. There is, however, a cornucopia of quirky outlets. You'll find shops selling Fairtrade baby equipment and toys, children's fashions, second-hand and new books and musical instruments. You'll also see good-looking boutiques dealing in designer-label garments, antique objet d'art and curios and much more. And The Cobbled Yard, off Bouverie Road, is good for vintage furniture. Foodies will delight in an independent bakery, a couple of patisseries and a butcher's, not to mention the Organic Farmers' Market held every Saturday.
