The area has seen some dramatic changes in recent years, with large residential blocks being built and huge amounts of investment flooding into Hackney Wick. There is a selection of period homes and some huge industrial riverside conversions. Property in Hackney Wick currently provides better value for money than neighbouring areas such as Dalston and Haggerston.
Hackney Wick has had a wonderful resurgence in the last few years and is a cultural hub for many of its new residents. Here are a few places we would suggest you visit:
Hackney Wick benefits from being close to Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, the largest urban shopping centre in Europe, where you will find restaurants, high street shops and a cinema. It is also close to Hackney Central where you will find major outlet stores at Chatsworth Place, including Burberry and Aquascutum.
Hackney Wick is perfectly located to enjoy the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which is packed with top of the range sports facilities.
