Why Move to Hackney?
Historically part of the county of Essex, Hackney is now a district situated in East London in the London Borough of Hackney.
Between the Tudor and Georgian periods, as far back as the late 1400’s, the area was an extremely prosperous one. Wealthy Londoner’s looked on Hackney as a pleasant rural alternative to the grim inner London streets of the time.
Sadly, the borough fell into decline for many years and treated almost as a no-go area. But that has all changed and quite dramatically so.
In a relatively recent survey conducted by the Sunday Times, Hackney was named as one of the ‘Best Places to Live in Britain’, quite a turnaround.
Hackney Central train station is part of the London Overground line network so getting about could not be easier. Alternatively, Hackney Downs train Station also gets you into the city centre, a journey of just 8 minutes direct into Liverpool Street Station.
Not only does the area offer those who reside here lots of open space, around 815 acres of it in fact, including Hackney Downs and Hackney Marshes but, in the run up to the 2012 Olympics transport links were upgraded along with other initiatives such as new housing provision and extra schools.
Far from being “in decline” Hackney in 2021 is in a very robust position.
Perfect for a quick commute into London, a host of interesting ways to spend your down time with a friendly local high street lined with independent shops and strong community ties.
In a very short period in time, and from being voted in the past as one of the worst places in London, Hackney as it is today has become a very much a sought-after location.
Boasting plenty of charm and appeal and offering a calm haven amongst the bustle of East London.
Hackney Schools & Education
Hackney London Borough Council is the local government authority for the area and is responsible for education provision.
The town has around 28,000 pupils being taught in over 70 schools, nurseries and play centres.
All children have access to mainstream schools as well as special schools, religiously affiliated schools and plenty of private schools are also available.
Among the many Ofsted rated “outstanding” state schools for younger children are Shacklewell Primary School, Our Lady and St Joseph Catholic Primary School and Queensbridge Primary School.
Although there are a good many secondary schools performing well according to Ofsted, Mossbourne Community Academy is one of the few “outstanding” secondary schools in the Borough.
BSix Sixth Form College and Hackney Community College both provide local further education. Various vocational and academic programmes are offered by each. However, there are other colleges well within travelling distance from the Borough.
In addition, certain colleges have currently or in the past provided some higher education courses in conjunction with the University of East London.
Things to do in Hackney
Hackney itself has built a bit of a reputation as a “cool” place to be seen, the heart of music, youth culture and creativity.
The popular Oval Space (or just OS) is one of the borough’s most beloved venues, it hosts top notch international DJs in a very trendy hangar-style venue and plays the latest music. It also boasts one of the finest terrace spaces in London, fully utilised for parties during summer months.
Sutton House was built during the Tudor era. Run by the National Trust it is a very interesting place to visit and learn more about the house itself and the areas past. Plus, it is supposedly haunted by a mother who died during childbirth…
Hackney Walk is great if you are a discerning shopper. It is a luxury designer outlet location offering up to 70% off luxury designer brands. Described as being “London’s first Luxury Outlet and a major urban development re-energising an area with unmistakable historical links to the fashion industry”.
As Hackney lays so close to our capital city, the recreational possibilities really are infinite.
Everyone has different ideas when it comes to relaxation and as you would expect, there is something for everyone in cosmopolitan London.
The usual suspects are well worth a visit, Big Ben, The London Eye, Madame Tussauds, The Tower of London, numerous art galleries and museums and London has a host of theatres too.
A trip on an open-air bus is a fun way to explore the city. Especially for the little ones as it can be tiring walking all day from attraction to attraction. Most of them allow you to hop on and hop off so you can pick and choose where you spend your time.
Property markets across the whole of the UK have got off to a flying start in 2021. Hackney is no different.
Buyers are pushing to complete their sales as soon as possible before the hike in stamp duty ends.
The Borough of Hackney has an amazing array of homes for sale, almost 2000 in total which means buyers certainly have a mind-boggling choice.
From single rooms up to multi-million-pound high rise grandiose apartments, Hackney has it all.
Having an average price paid of £694,016 means that you need plenty of money to be able to purchase a home here.
The cheapest property for sale is a studio flat located close to Hackneys two stations, Hackney Downs and Hackney Central, well within walking distance for the sum of £140,000.
Currently the most expensive real estate in the area is in the brand-new Principal Tower.
A 50-storey high rise development close to all amenities and boasting a number of features such as a gym, a swimming pool and spa. But only the very wealthy need apply as apartments start at over £3,000,000.
