Often referred to simply as 'Stokey' by its residents, Stoke Newington is an area noted for its distinct London village character.
With an abundance of Victorian architecture ranging from two-storey cottages through to elegant four and five-storey houses, Stoke Newington property has attracted an even wider range of residents in recent years.
Rich in culture and personality, large Asian, Irish, Turkish, Jewish and Afro-Caribbean communities live in Stoke Newington, and excellent and all-night Turkish grocers and delis line Stoke Newington High Street. Within the last decade, a number of immigrants from Eastern Europe have also moved to the area, as well as increasing numbers of young families and affluent professionals that make the period properties around Stoke Newington Church Street their homes.
All residents of Stoke Newington fill the district’s tree-dotted open spaces when the sun comes out. The most impressive is Clissold Park – a 54-acre leafy expanse that contains tennis courts, duck ponds, an enclosure of deer and a pavilion cafe. For evening entertainment, Stoke Newington has a variety of good pubs and bars, a lively music scene and some excellent restaurants on Church Street.
