Stoke Newington, London
(4.4/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Stoke Newington is an area occupying the north-west part of the London Borough of Hackney.The historic core on Church Street was the site of the original hamlet of Stoke Newington which in turn gave its name to the Ancient Parish of Stoke Newington. Church Street retains the distinct 'London village' character which led Nikolaus Pevsner to write that he found it hard to see the district as being in London at all.Stoke Newington is nicknamed ‘Stokey’ by many residents.BoundariesThe modern London Borough of Hackney was formed by the merger of three former Metropolitan Boroughs; Hackney and the considerably smaller authorities of Stoke Newington and Shoreditch. These Metropolitan Boroughs had been in existence since 1899 but their names and boundaries were very closely based on much older ancient parishes dating back to the medieval period.Unlike many districts in London, such as nearby Stamford Hill and Dalston within the former AP\MB (Ancient Parish\Metropolitan Borough) of Hackney, Stoke Newington has longstanding formal boundaries; but like many areas the area definition has changed over time and Stoke Newington is now popularly regarded as stretching further east to overlap areas of the former AP\MB of Hackney.

  • The security man is lovely. The staff are cool but 3 of them are really loud and shout alot. It's not nice
  • Very helpful friendly staff and security guard. Good library thanks!
  • Nice library but problem is with the staff one is really loud and shout alot the other one is grumpy.
  • Very good film section. General layout is a bit of a mess. Helpful, and, very importantly, knowledgeable staff (one grumpy one - he knows who he is). Excellent use of automation in the library for taking out, returning, and renewing loans, plus very good website option. Overall a very good local library.
  • great place in London
