Not having a tube station has certainly helped Stoke Newington retain its village vibe. But we're still pretty well connected, whether you reach us via Overground or bus. Head for Stoke Newington Church St or Stoke Newington High St. Or if you'd prefer to cycle, we have some of London's loveliest cycle routes - reach us via the C1 Cycleway.
Low Traffic Neighbourhood
Stoke Newington is a low-traffic neighbourhood. Between 7am and 7pm motorists are not allowed to drive the length of Church St (there's a bus gate in place by the Red Lion pub) - if you drive over the big rainbow in the road you risk a pretty hefty fine. You can still access Church St by car - you just can't drive the length of it.
Many roads north and south of Church St are closed to through-traffic 24-hours a day.
If you're coming from the east by car, head for the Wilmer Place Car Park (though spaces are limited), Bouverie Road or Marton Road. If you're coming from Islington or west of Stoke Newington, on-street parking is available in Barn Street, Lordship Terrace or Woodlea Road.
Electric Charge Points
There are charging points for electric cars on Yoakley Road, Bouverie Road and Defoe Road.
