Hackney City Farm Garden-Suggested by Ophelia
If you have never noticed this hidden beauty on a visit to Hackney City Farm you’re missing it out. The garden is divided into various sections including an orchard area which is made up of apple, plum and pear trees and the bog garden, which is filled with wetland plants. There are also several farm animals.
Located within Hackney City Farm, along with the ‘Frizzante’ cafe and a farm shop which sells produce grown in the garden.
Open all year round from Tuesday – Sunday, 10 am – 4.30pm, closed Mondays except Bank Holidays.
The Bell-Suggested by Nadja
You have arrived in London but can’t decide where you should go to have some good English food? Well, here is a suggestion you won’t regret. “The Bell”, a pub in North London, combines tasty food and a real London experience. Their fish & chips are especially mouth-watering. The service is very friendly and they are always up for a laugh. Don’t miss out on having a beer while you enjoy the warm atmosphere. Be aware of the fact that this pub is always quite crowded after work, so try it in the afternoon after midday.
Columbia Road Flower Market and Broadway Market -Suggested by Marianne
Take a nice walk on beautiful Columbia Road Flower Market and then enjoy your breakfast in one of the many brunch & breakfast spots over there. Or visit Broadway Market in East London for things to eat, vintage shopping and artisan bread, cheese, olive oil and charcuterie.
Columbia Road flower market and shops are open on Sundays from 8 am ’til 3’ish and Broadway Market on Saturday from 9 am til 5 pm.
The Dev-Suggested by Michelle
Just two minutes from Camden Town Station you can find an amazing full metal pub, playing great music and selling the most affordable drinks I’ve found in London. And I am definitely not talking about the Underworld or the World’s End. The real metalheads meet up at the Devonshire Arms at Kentish Town Rd, drink cider or beer, listen to metal and sing Karaoke, or should I say growl?
