Markets

Local markets always create a sense of established, time-old community. Columbia Road flower market and Broadway Market in Hackney are no exception. Hackney is also rich in places demonstrating independence of spirit, from a bakery selling jars of Hackney honey to a shop selling vintage wares as if from someone’s very own front room.

Columbia Road Market

On Sunday the street is transformed into an oasis of foliage and flowers. Everything from bedding plants to 10 foot banana trees are up for grabs. The air is intense with the scent of flowers and the chant of the barrow boys ‘Everthin’ a fiver’.

Schools

From infant day care to primary schools to further education colleges ranked ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, Stratford London offers a wide range of options. The area is also home to Chobham Academy, a Lend Lease Harris Partnership, a new school which is one of the few in the UK providing education from ages 3 to 19. Two Legacy Development Schools are also planned to be built on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Universities

Glasshouse Gardens is close to some of the UK’s top universities, from traditional institutions to highly specialised establishments – there are five major universities within five miles of Stratford.
