De Beauvoir is unique in Hackney, with its stuccoed 19th century villas more reminiscent of London’s West End. Typical of Hackney, the area offers a walk of contrasts, revealing a tale from medieval manor to today’s loft apartments and trendy eateries, taking in mad houses, factories and canals along the way.
