Hackney is located in the northwest of London and has the direct neighbours of the City, Islington, Haringey, Waltham Forest, Newham and Tower Hamlets. Hackney is just under a mile north of the River Thames and is extremely well situated for working in the City.
Frequent trains run from the overland train stations at Hackney Central, Hackney Downs and London Fields, and buses run day and night to the City and West End. Many City workers who live in the area around Dalston walk to work. Of huge significance for the borough is the extension of the East London Line through Hackney to connect with the tube network, with stations at Shoreditch High Street, Hoxton, Haggerston and Dalston Junction. Mare Street is at the heart of thriving Hackney, and runs south past the 1920s Hackney Town Hall to Bethnal Green and Whitechapel. The area boasts excellent Vietnamese restaurants, the infamous Bethnal Green Working Men's Club and the gloriously restored Hackney Empire Theatre - one of the best community theatres in London.
