London Fields & Broadway Market


A POPULAR weekend hangout, this area is busy all year round.  Packed with hipsters and families alike, looking for a slice of the green space, great bars, and cool cafes on offer.

London Fields Lido is a top attraction in the area

No excursion to the area is complete without a trip Broadway Market on Saturday, which rivals any gourmet farmers’ market in London. Find a delicious array of global food to take away and select organic produce, all mixed up with vintage fashion, household wares and vinyl.

To get the party started, visitors have the choice of fine Belgian beers at The Dove, a pear cider at The Cat and Mutton, and cocktails at the New York-style drinking den Off Broadway.

Green Flag-award winning London Fields park has something for everyone, from a play zone and paddling pool for families, to a BBQ area and London's only 50-metre heated outdoor pool, the London Fields Lido.
 
Visitors should also take a detour to Mentmore Terrace,  near London Fields station, where it is easy to find independent retailers and makers such as the London Fields Brewery, E5 Bakehouse and Happy Kitchen.
