The infographic was created following a recent increase of attention on the area and to give those looking for flats to rent in Hackney some facts and figures. For the location itself, there is a breakdown of the different neighbourhoods and constituent wards that make up the borough. Average house prices from the land registry are compared with those in London and England overall, broken down into Detached, Semi-Detached, Maisonette and Terraced categories. There is a mini-guide to some of the most important reasons why people choose Hackney property - local attractions, amenities and links to other sources of information for potential residents. Hackney Marshes is the proud home of the largest concentration of amateur football pitches anywhere in Europe, with over 100 games played there each weekend during the winter season. It’s also the home of the world famous Circus Space in Hoxton, training adults in circus skills and offering the UK’s only university accredited degree for the profession. Education is a key local priority, with local libraries hosting some 600 events each year.
There’s also the rich heritage from the first Tudor theatres showing Shakespearian plays. The nineteenth century brought the Hackney Empire, where music hall flourished, with Charlie Chaplin, WC Fields, and Stan Laurel all treading the boards there. Today the Hackney Empire is still one of the most iconic and respected London cultural landmarks, and a fresh new roster of talent arrives alongside star names every season. There’s also an easy to read timeline of key historic local events. From 1086D when the area was first mentioned in records as ‘Neutone’, it has developed through growing parishes to the 1800s when the railway arrived and industrial development really took off. The nineteenth century brought massive regeneration in successive waves and the area has kept its ‘up and coming’ reputation for many years now, reflected in the current demand for all types of Hackney property. The borough is justifiably famous for the local ambience, with a fantastically multi-cultural population bringing many global influences seen in a wide variety of shops, local clubs, associations and events, plus the ever popular Ridley Road market. The infographic gives a clear demographic breakdown of who lives there today and past famous residents.
