Hoxton is a curious little place that many Londoners will find it hard to pinpoint. To the North of Shoreditch and The City, and near the current hotspots of Dalston and Hackney, Hoxton offers a varied day out.
Street Art in Hoxton
Perhaps unsurprisingly there is a street art scene in Hoxton as it is so close to Brick Lane and Shoreditch. Walking along Hackney Road is your best chance of seeing some street art.
The Hackney City Farm
We are huge Hackney City Farm fans. Especially when it comes to slightly different and unusual date ideas in the area. Try one of their mosaic or pottery classes and see the animals of course.
The Geffrye Museum
The Geffrye is dedicated to home life over the past four to five hundred years. It has many curious exhibits and is a little quieter than some of the other big hitting London museums. The gardens are beautiful too. More information here.
The Flower Market at Columbia Road on a weekend is renowned, but the area is very cute for a coffee or some food on the other days of the week. The Laxiero Tapas Bar (93 Columbia Rd, London E2 7RG | Website) and Campania (23 Ezra St, Bethnal Green, London E2 7RH | Website) are safe bets, but you can't go far wrong here.
This is one of our favourite parts of the Hoxton and surrounds puzzle. Brick Lane is known for the curry and this stretch of Kingsland Road is quickly developing a name for itself. Nicknamed Pho Mile or Vietnamese Mile, if you are a fan of broths or gyozas you need to come along... Time Out do a handy guide of what to expect.
