Hackney is one of the most rapidly developing areas of London. And it's also one of the most compelling. There's a rich cultural scene and a creative and vibrant vibe too. Plus there are great links to the City, Docklands and the West End. Massive regeneration is in evidence across the borough, from the magnificently refurbished Hackney Empire, Kings Hall leisure centre, St John at Hackney Church and churchyard regeneration to the new £25 million central library and museum.
