Over the last few years, Broadway Market has replaced Mare Street as Hackney Central’s busiest local shopping street and if you want to escape the bustling street, just a few steps away in the back streets, you will find an explosion of thriving new cafés, bars and restaurants. Hackney Walk, part of London’s luxury district, has turned Hackney Central into one of London’s top tourist attractions.
