In one of London's most diverse and vibrant boroughs you'll never run out of things to do in Hackney. There is a multitude of family friendly adventures to enjoy on a daily basis.

Head outdoors to enjoy one of Hackney's 62 stunning parks, making it one of London's greenest boroughs. Walk, ride, cycle or canoe around Lea Valley, visit the animals at Hackney City Farm, or have a splash at the London Field's lido.

As a borough that has one of the highest number of babies per capita in England, there are an impressive array of family friendly cafes and restaurants offering not just fantastic food, but also a huge range of activities such as music classes, story telling and baby sign to name just a few.

At weekends, inviting markets pop up across the borough. Delve into Hackney's historical past at The Hackney Museum or the beautiful Geffrye Museum.

Historically Hackney has been home to the extraordinary and provocative. This tradition continues at the Circus School and “creative 
space” Netil House. Where else in London can you enjoy 
a rooftop drink while your little one makes a mobile in a yurt?
