LOCAL AREA & AMENITIES

The apartment directly overlooks beautiful London Fields park on a quiet street. While the local area has a lovely family-friendly atmosphere, it is also situated very close to some of the coolest places in London for bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants (Hoxton, Shoreditch, Old Street, etc...)

London Fields Park
An Olympic sized swimming pool right on your door step! The open-air pool is 200m away on the north side of the park and is so great in the summer. It's open seven days a week and doesn't close until the sun goes down. There are also tennis courts within the park.
