Highgate Men's Bathing Pond
Tucked away just off Millfield Lane, it is a lovely quiet place to go and relax and walk - and even better when it is sunny!
“Because it's the best place to get a feel for Hackney's Cultural mix. And for the Ararat Bakery flatbread And the Chinese man who offers TCM herbs and chair massages at very reasonable cost And the essential Oils and soaps And the Incense Man And fresh fish And every vegetable you can imagine And very cheap clothes and household goods”
Grocery or Supermarket
“Local corner shop. Wide selection of basic groceries as well as posh. Wine beer etc. Some days the veg is superb, some days not so superb, depending on deliveries. Good value big tubs of plain yogurt.”
“Extra fare on top of your Oyster card per trip but it's worth trying if the weather is nice and you are keen on taking photos. It will take you all the way to Tower bridge and London Eye.”
“Women-only outdoor pond for swimming. Open all year round, but the best place to swim for women in London in the summer! Only girls over 8 years old”
“It's a really quiet little known, sweet street , so close, with fabulous cafe's, restaurant, great pubs, hairdressers, quirky shops, launderette, convenience stores, biker hangout, vintage clothes and artisan shops. One of Hackney's hidden hipster hangouts. featured in the recent HALIFAX advert on TV”
