One of the most appealing things about Hackney is there is so much on your doorstep. You can enjoy a busy social life without venturing far, which is perfect for people who cannot be bothered with late night transport hitches!
There is also the fact that remote working is rising, and is set to become a common feature of everyday life. If people no longer need to attend the office or their place of work on a daily basis, transport hubs become less important.
However, there will always be a need to get around, and you’ll find that Hackney is capable of meeting all your needs. There is plenty of green space to ensure you feel as though you are out in the open, but you can also get around to seeing the very best of London.
We believe connectivity is everything in the London housing market, and you might be pleasantly surprised at how well-connected Hackney is.
A prospective buyer taking a casual look at Hackney for transport links is likely to be disappointed that the Underground isn’t present in the area. This is a blow; however, it is fair to say Hackney is extremely well-connected. You might find it a lot easier to get in and out of Hackney than you first expected.
Hackney Central is likely to be your main station, and there is also the Homerton Station to consider. Both of these stations are on the London Overground network. You can take trains to Stratford and Highbury & Islington, which provides access to the Victoria Line. You can also access Margate from here, if you are looking for a jolly day out.
If you are looking to connect with trains in Liverpool Street, you will find London Fields and Hackney Downs provide this access.
All of the stations in Hackney are classed as Zone 2.
Of course, when it comes to getting around London, you aren’t only limited to trains and the Underground network. There is a dependable bus service, and many Hackney residents make their way around the capital on one of the many bus routes which are present in Hackney.
If you are making a daily commute, buses which run along Graham Road or Mare Street will get you where you need to be.
There are links to Marble Arch, Victoria, London Bridge, Oxford Circus, Whitechapel, Aldgate and even the Isle of Dogs.
With a little bit of forward planning, you can make it to anywhere in London from Hackney, and you get the benefits of living in a stylish and vibrant area.
We know connectivity is crucial for homeowners, and you won’t be let down in this area of London.
