Things to do in Hackney

Known for his work on other theatres, incluing the London Coliseum and London Paladium, architect Frank Matcham designed this theatre in the Hackney area. Originally a music hall, Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel (of Laurel and Hardy) have appeared on its stage.

Londoners searching for fresh, local produce know to visit the Stoke Newington Farmers’ Market, held every Saturday at St. Paul's Church.
