Tottenham Green Market
With groceries that cover everything from organic meats, free range eggs, vegetables, fruit, honey and bread to carefully selected wines, craft beer, cheese, fresh pasta and oils. If you have a sweet tooth you will have difficulty deciding between the many treats on offer. But that’s not all: there is an abundance of street food stalls, making sure everyone finds a meal they like. The market also organises activities for young and old throughout the year.
Do want a relaxed evening with a cold drink and freshly prepared Roti or a wild night dancing to international electro sounds ? In either case head over to Styx.
This former warehouse has been transformed into an exciting outdoor and indoor space with regular live music and immersive theatre shows. All only a short walk away from Hale Works.
Just minutes away from Hale Works the Tottenham Marshes open up with vast grassland, wild-flower meadows and waterways. You can walk along the River Lee where houseboat owners and urban fishermen peacefully coexist with the local wildlife ranging from kingfishers to herons.
If you are the active type you can run and cycle along the 8 mile long towpath to the Lee Country Park.
In October 2017 Thames Water officially invited visitors to step into its 211 hectare reservoir land. The newly renovated engine house hosts the Walthamstow Wetlands visitors centre and café and is the perfect location to begin and end the expedition into the rich nature of the reservoir.
There are scenic quiet routes laid out for walks. Jogging and biking is possible, yet restricted to ensure the peace of the wildlife.
Beavertown Brewery started with a 50 litre rice pan, some tools and a lot of experimentation by the founder Logan Plant. With time the brewery moved from Hackney to Tottenham where it is still located today. It is hard to miss the distinctive packaging of their beers and once you know it you will notice this local beer everywhere in London.
Visit the taproom which is open every Saturday from 2pm – 8pm.
