Haggerston has an above average violent crime rate and an above average property crime rate for London.


Haggerson is a bit of a melting pot when it comes to just about everything: cultures, people, jobs, and housing. That feel stems from the fact that this neighborhood was cobbled together from streets that were excluded from surrounding neighborhoods. It's unapologetically a hipster destination and amongst the shops and homes are walls covered in street art. 

As prices elsewhere in London skyrocket, people are finally taking notice of Haggerston since it still has apartments and houses for every budget. Housing is a mix of Victorian era terraces, new condo towers, and lofts converted from old warehouses. Artists are moving in, new shops are opening up, and rent prices are slowly increasing. The opening of a London Overground station here has made this much more appealing for people commuting elsewhere for work.

There are tons of great restaurants and pubs here along two main roads, Kingsland and Hackney. The neighborhood's historic Broadway Market is a weekly street market that features 135 stalls selling food, clothing, homewares, and gifts. Another great attraction is Regent's Canal, which cuts through town is a good place to walk on a sunny day or grab a cold beer at one of the warehouses-cum-bars that line the towpaths. 

Overall, Haggerston is still a quiet place to live, but there's no telling when the scales will tip this into one of London's new trendy hot spots.

Haggerston is bordered on the north by Dalston, on the east by South Hackney, on the south by Bethnal Green, and on the west by Shoreditch and Canonbury.
