Why we love London: Hackney

With a massively diverse ethnic mix, you can travel the world in Hackney and feel the life and verve of different cultures.  It is also classically English, with some areas falling in the East-end of London – with its strong cockney culture.  The area is known for its light industries that employ thousands in the region.  For printing services in London this is an area that asks for brochures and catalogues and business stationery.

If you worry this place is all industry and no beauty – then fear not – there are some 1300 listed buildings in the area – including large areas of protected Georgian and Victorian housing that form part of the UK’s industrial heritage.
