Looking to snap up a property in this desirable east-end neighbourhood? Our estate agents have put together this guide, to help you decide if Victoria Park is the place for you.

Where Is Victoria Park?

The open green space of Victoria Park has given its name to the surrounding area. Sandwiched between Hackney, Bethnal Green, Bow and Fish Island, this area of London is full of the east-end charm that our estate agents love.

The area surrounding the park offers a beautiful mix of period properties, independent delis and a great range of cafes and restaurants. And, with an 86-acre park at the heart of this neighbourhood, featuring picturesque lakes, fountains and play areas for the kids, you’ll never be short of places to stretch your legs.

What Is There To Do In Victoria Park?

First off, you should visit the park that sits at the heart of this area. The park is often referred to as ‘the people’s park’, built in 1842 it is the oldest public park in the UK. It has seen its fair share of history, being a meeting place for rallies and political speeches, particularly during the Suffragette movement. Some of our estate agent’s favourite features are the Chinese pagoda, the boating lake where you can hire pedalos and the Sunday market which is full of local produce.

If you’re looking for a local watering hole, our estate agents recommend The Empress, which is a top-rated local pub that dates back to the 1850s, or The Lauriston where you can expect pizzas, pints, prosecco and more.

How Can You Get Around?

As with most of London’s neighbourhoods, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to local transport in Victoria Park. Cambridge Heath, Hackney Wick, Bethnal Green and Bow Green stations are all well within walking distance, offering Central, Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Overground connections. Or, if you don’t fancy the train, the bus routes are endless.

To the East of the park, there is also the mammoth Queen Elizabeth Park and nearby Stratford station which offers cross-country train services.

Why Should You Move To Victoria Park?

A 2022 report by The Times voted Victoria Park the best place to live in East London, and our estate agents agree. One local resident says about the area “It’s really nice to live by the park. It’s really quiet around here which is rare for London”.

In this report, The Times put the average house value at £755,000. Our estate agents often find the area is popular with families or young working professionals who are looking for community spirit in the heart of the capital.
