Afternoon in Stoke Newington, London

A vibrant slice of London life.

Stoke Newington is an area in north-west London. Its beginnings were as a small village and expanded during the 19th century to accommodate people commuting into the heart of London.

Today it’s a very multicultural area and a fun place to explore. Don’t miss Church Street for some of the best cafes and independent shops.

I really loved the colorful shop fronts, street art and brickwork. People chatting, cycling and going about their day created a great atmosphere. Around tea-time I enjoyed a break at Spence Bakery, 161 Church Street – check out my review coming soon.

How to get there: Stoke Newington Overground Rail Station or Arsenal Underground Station.
