Lower Clapton Favourites
I’ve lived in East London for 7 years and we keep creeping further out- from Hackney Road, to Bethnal Green, to Lower Clapton. We are on the edge of East London right next to the Walthamstowe Marshes - brilliant for daily walks, bike rides and meditations. It is my daily escape- one of London’s best kept secrets. Like Hampstead Heath but more wild. I love seeing all the quirky house boats that adorn the canal- there is a real community vibe out there. I love to ride my bike out to the boat house café for a falafel wrap overlooking all the action.
Our Sunday market is a more toned town version of Broadway Market - fresh food and locals - the goodness of Broadway without the crowds.
I head to Jim's for the best breakfast, cheerful faces and Led Zepplin banging at all hours. Super cozy booths and great service.
Bernsteins is my go-to for a quick week day lunch or coffee with a friend. The house smoked fish plate is delicious as are their cakes and treats.
The Castle Cinema is a small, independent theatre with fresh popcorn and cold beers in a super unique space, doesn’t get much better than this.
