About the location

We live in Clapton which is part of Hackney, inner London (zone 2). The apartment overlooks a river and marshes - a beautiful nature reserve - out of the window you can see canoeists, cyclists and joggers. We are very near a large and beautiful park. The apartment is quiet and the air is good but we are near lively urban areas with lots of entertainment and things to see. Excellent for cyclists. Manor House tube (zone 2, Piccadilly Line) is a short bus ride away and from there it is only 16 minutes by tube to the centre (West End). The stops for the British Museum, National Gallery, and all the museums in South Kensington are on this line. Clapton Station (10 minutes to the City of London and Liverpool Street tube) is a ten mintue walk from our home.
