Homerton is one of those areas in London where you'll hear people muttering: 'oh, hasn't it changed?!', or: 'it's completely irrecognisable', or even: 'I remember when all this used to be fields' (which, incidentally, it did). Gentrification moves quickly in these parts. These parts being, broadly speaking - Chatsworth Road, Well Street, Morning Lane and their surrounding areas.
E9 has definitely seen a whirlwind of change over the last couple of years. Once a rather down-at-heel destination, it now boasts a growing café scene, and pubs and restaurants aplenty. Bizarrely, it's also home to Hackney's first luxury fashion district (or 'hub' as they'd rather call it). Here's our pick of the best things to do, eat, drink and hunt down in Homerton.
