Stoke Newington is a neighborhood in East London that's always been a haven for underdogs and those who don’t necessarily want to blend into the crowd, so you'll find a population full of designers, musicians, and other creative types. Independent clothing stores, bookshops, cafes, and homeware stores are around every corner.

A number of good schools make “Stokey” a great place for families. Add this to the the tons of green space here and you have the perfect formula for a place that is quickly getting more expensive.

Victorian homes of various sizes are the most popular properties here. There are quite a few red brick Georgian-style homes as well, especially in Clissold Crescent. Some of these properties have been divided into apartments, though a lot of them are still single family homes.

There are a lot of places to eat, including a ton of options for vegans and vegetarians. The blending of cultures here ensures that there are a lot of different choices for people. The same thing can be said about the nightlife: tons of options whether you want to go out dancing or just settle in for a pint.

The Arcola Theatre is a popular destination for theater lovers, hosting 50 new productions each year. For academics, there is also a whole slew of workshops and lectures in the area as well.

For those who like to shop, you’ll find vintage offerings, thrift markets, farmers’ markets, boutique food stores, cafes, and some retail chain stores.

Stokey is quite connected to the rest of the city with buses and trains, though cycling is the preferred mode of transportation.

Stoke Newingon is bordered on the north by Woodberry Down and Stamford Hill, on the east by Clapton, on the south by Dalston, and on the west by Highbury.
