Hackney is London's most diverse and dynamic borough. Reaching from the edge of the City to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, this is an area of rapid economic growth, particularly in technology, media, fashion and other creative industries. Hackney has more green spaces than any other inner London borough; some of the capital's finest schools; first class transport connections; excellent public services; and thriving arts, cultural and retail sectors. It is fast becoming one of London’s more popular areas to live, work and visit.
