My favourite part of London. Good in any weather. Wander along the riverside and take in the sights and sounds, window-shop, eat aplenty, chill aplenty. Feels a bit like yr in a film wandering down it

This is an awesome venue - especially in the slightly warmer months! The garden is intricate and adventure to wander round; there is fresh pizza from the oven (when on), & they have many free events

Another little, and different, very nearby. It is also a cemetery(!), full of very old graves, that are fun to read. Great for strolling through for some quiet time; it has a forest feel.

I love this park. It is probably the closest to the flat, about 7 mins walk. Its on a hill and leads down to the River Lea which is stunning to walk along, & Hackney Marshes. There is a cafe too.
