Stoke Newington is an area of London about 5km north of the City and West End. It still retains an individual and slightly alternative character of its own. Its a great base from which to explore London and a place to spend some time in in its own right. "Best place in the UK to be a parent" (Observer Magazine London, November 2004). ?Stoke Newington is a medieval village that, while now swallowed up by the British capital, has never truly become a part of it. One of the most culturally diverse parts of London, Stoke Newington is today a great place to eat, drink and shop as well as being an excellent detour from the beaten tourist track.? (Lonely Planet Guide to London 2006).
"Stoke Newington today very much retains a village charm... it has long attracted struggling artists, including many British independent filmmakers. "Stokey," as residents affectionately call it, is also multicultural, multiracial and multigenerational. The neighborhood is compact and friendly, with most of the action centered on charming Stoke Newington Church Street." (Washington Post June 15 2008)
From a 2008 exchanger: 'I much enjoyed your house and your neighbourhood recommendations - especially Rasa... Stoke Newington... has the easy going charm of a US college town. Very nice place to live !"
