You’ve got fashionable Broadway Market and craft beer in railway arches, London Fields in Hackney, lovely leafy Victoria Park, trendy-and-decent dining options in Shoreditch, all manner of cheap Vietnamese up the Kingsland Road (try Mein Tay), plus a little further out there’s the Olympic Park and epic Epping Forest for walks that could fool you into thinking you’re in the actual countryside.
