Clissold Park, London

4.5
#36 of 100 in Parks in London
Clissold Park is a designated community park (22.57ha) in Stoke Newington, within the London Borough of Hackney. Its facilities include children's playgrounds, sports fields, a bowling green, tennis courts, the café and some other attractions including terrapins in its lakes, as well as deer, quail, and rabbits. The park also comprises remains of the New River, and the Capital Ring has some of its paths running through a small section of the park.HistoryClissold House was built, in the latter half of the 18th century, for Jonathan Hoare, a City merchant, Quaker, philanphropist and anti-slavery campaigner. The park was created to be his idyll, and the stretch of water which wends its way around the house was once part of the New River, a canal that supplied London with clean water from Hertfordshire.

    Really love this park. It's good for a family trip and just for single walk. Animals are definitely a big attraction . Especially for kids  more »

    Not just one of London's many parks, but one of the most beautiful - a wide area for walking, jogging, bike-riding, picnicking or just sitting down and relaxing. But that's not all: here you can get a...  more »

    Playground here outdoes many others in London. Great little park - worth the commute to from our corner of SE London!  more »

  • Beautiful park with excellent sports and recreation facilities. The cafe in the house does a good selection of food (although I've only had coffee/snacks) and decent coffee too. A very dog-friendly park in general and an ideal spot for exercising. Some stunning views in the sunshine too. Also have a regular program of events at the house and in the park to look out for.
  • A very neat park with, skating rings, tennis and safe children's play areas. With large spaces for all kinds of team sports. It feels safe everywhere in the park.
  • My favourite green space in all of north London. A great place to relax and enjoy sunny days. A favourite with families and dog owners too. Theres Evan a mini goat farm ! 🐐
  • Well cared for and something for everyone. Great kids playground, tennis courts, deer, ducks, chicken, ponds, a track around the perimeter for an approximately 1 mile loop. Minus a star for the main cafe being unrepresentative of the culturally diverse population who come here; they are missing a trick by not taking the opportunity to offer favourite snack food from around the world.
  • Love running here in the mornings. The park is packed on the weekends and good for people and dog watching, but not a place for quiet or solitude! Lots of sports and people working out and kids playing. The zoo is small and quite charming. Would love to try the cafe soon.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
