Homerton is in the borough of Hackney....same way Dalston and Stoke Newington are also in Hackney.
I've lived in Homerton since Jan 2005 - I believed I moved into one of the first set of new build properties. There are loads popping up all over Homerton. I've picked up a slightly negative vibe re Homerton which saddens me a bit as it's a great place to live. You can get anywhere in London very quickly for instance, I work in St James Park and once I'm on the overground it's 30 mins into work - plus lots of other areas are closeby. If you want to live somewhere which doesn't have the craziness and overcrowding as say Dalston but has great places to eat and and have a drink then Homerton is your place!!
Is it safe?? Well no one has ever bothered me and I've never felt threatened however, this is London and you need to sensible.
I love Hackney.......and yes Homerton IS Hackney lol.
I am thinking of moving to London but I will like to know if Homerton is in hackney cos I am kinda confused about it
Also will like to know the kind of people or lifestyle there please?
Does the province consist of both blacks and whites?? Thank you
Are the people there friendly ??
Try Gill at the Kindandental surgery near Newington Green - only three short train stops away (5 mins walk from Canonbury station on the Overground). Extremely busy surgery but Gill is great.
I've recently moved to Homerton and need to sign up with a dentist. Can anyone recommend a decent one nearby? I live near the overground station but happy to travel a bit for a good one!
I am a female living in Homerton/Clapton, and I love it. London can be be a tough city - wherever you are - I certainly don't believe that Homerton is any worse than any other place. If you are worried about personal safety at night, then get a bike. Then you don't have to worry about walking down quiet streets which is unpleasant anywhere. Homerton is great because it's so close to the bustle of Hackney (and all its great amenities like the London Fields, the Lido, restaurants on Mare St) but it's just far enough out to feel really peaceful. Chatsworth Rd has a fantastic greengrocers and a nice deli, and we are really near the beautiful Hackney Marshes, Victoria Park etc.
Hi, I am moving to homerton in a few weeks and would like to have as much information as possible about everything in the area like Leisure centres,GPs,shops,restaurants,pubs, nightclubs,markets,organic and health shops, libraries,transport,minicabs...
Can anyone help? any info would be apreciated.
Thanks a lot!!
My 18 year old daughter is moving to Kenworthy Nurses Halls in Feb. Im beginning to get anxious about safety in the area. Can anybody tell me how do nurses cope with the travelling at odd hours for hospital shifts i.e. early morning and late night. Does anybody know the cost of taxis from there to city centre? Also what is the night life like in Hackney ? any advice would be most welcome!!
I stayed in homerton fro six months and found the popele in the shops to be friendlier and cheaper than in Brixton where I have mainly lived in london, but the transport what a pain....and also the part i lived in was lacking in greenery which i find more readily in lambeth.
I am in the process of moving to London, I have considered Homerton as an area to live. People I know are making negative comments about this borough and I would like to know how you the residents feel about your area and if it is worth me moving here to live...
Hi - I've seen a group of women running along Lee Conservancy Road the other night, Does anyone know how to join them?
I'm very close to buying a flat in Furrow Lane. I have always lived in Islington so it will be a bit of a change. I have three questions: a) how easy is it to get to Old Street from there? b) is Furrow Lane an okay road to live in? c) Does anybody know what are they going to do with the school behind Furrow Lane? I hear it is going to be demolished.
PS. As other people have asked... is it safe for a girl to take the night bus and walk to Furrow lane?
A big buzz in the area. Its up and coming and every one there feels it.
Young artists to aging Reggae giggers. Im moving soon becuase I love it.
Great Pubs, Clubs and fantastic variety of top food
yes my brother a good cheap builder
Hi, I moved to chatsworth rd, last year, just beside the hospital. I dont feel unsafe, any more than I would in most parts of london. late nite travel by bus, is fine, the train not so, some drunks but thats more the exception. The train line is due for up grade soon, more trains etc, and the nearby Olympic site, will demand a better safer service. Its a culturally mixed area, plenty of shops, and people are friendly enuff
I've lived there as a single girl for a year and have never had a problem. Obviously I dont walk the streets in the middle of the night but come home late on the night bus sometimes or on the North London Line and it's fine. I really like Homerton - people are friendly and generally really helpful. Zone 2 for sure.
you do need to be careful but I was surprised how safe I felt (my previous home town was Johannesburg though).
i loved chatsworth road in the day and running along the canal and near hackney marshes was lovely too
Can anybody recommend a GP? I'll move there in a few days and I admit I am pretty scared of that neighbourhood :( On that silver link you get all sorts of people going east or west :|... Would it be safe for a 26 year old woman? Maybe it's better by bus....
I know that nowhere is completely safe. Just want to know whether that dark road from Homerton station is scary to walk down at night. And also does the area feel communal and friendly to live in?
I'm considering taking a flat near homerton hospital on chatworth road/clifden road. What is it like coming home from central london at night as a 24-year old female?
This is absurd, I have lived in the area for 16 yrs (and many others in London) Homerton is no less safe than most. 'IF' you were attacked 5 times I suggest you remove that sticker from you forehead before you move anywhere else, as it will soon be 5 more ; )
Transport links aren't brilliant. There is no tube. There is a rail link at nearby Homerton Station, but it doesn't go into the centre of London - you will need to change at Highbury and Islington for the Victoria Line. However there are buses into Central London - 26, 30 from Wick Road and 242 from Homerton Hospital; the 26 and 242 have a night service too. There is also a good network of local buses to nearby places.
Well I've been living in Homerton for nearly two years have never felt unsafe!
It is in Zone 2
Does anyone know of a reputable builder in the Homerton area? I need minor building work done on my flat i.e. a stud wall and door move
The Scouts' charity shop -in fact, all the charity shops- on Well Street. The Lea Valley Park and towpath too: it still feels like London, what with all the warehouses and industry, but it's still lovely to walk (or even better, cycle) beside the river and be ignored by all the herons and ducks.
Thers a good company in nearby Morning called Gatehouse Cars
Small doorway between the chemist and Pizza Hut corner of Graham Rd.
yes it is safe to live in homerton as a woman, it is just like any part of london. do you believe the scaremongering or do you do what you wanna do? the choice is yours...and oh to make things even better, homerton boasts of a hospital and fire station! and i am a woman too
I have a question about the security in Homerton. Is it secure to live there as a girl?
And is it right that Homerton is still in zone 2?
