Stamford Hill is a place of diverse cultures, with leafy streets and boulevards that lead to an array of neighbourhoods with their own distinct, individual atmospheres. Situated on Stamford Hill itself, Aviv is just moments from the heart of this thriving community and within a few minutes walk of Stoke Newington station.

Markets also play a part in the social appeal of the area, with Chatsworth Road market every Sunday and Stoke Newington’s farmers’ market, winner of ‘Best Independent Retailer’ by the Observer Food Monthly Awards, while The Ecologist magazine rated it as one of the UK’s top ten farmers’ markets.

From Aviv you have easy access to a number of tranquil parks and open spaces, bringing you the opportunity to retreat from the bustle of urban life.
Springfield Park is a beautiful, tree-lined park sloping down to the banks of the River Lea. Opened to the public in 1905, facilities include tennis courts, bowling green, rugby and cricket grounds. There is also a café, regularly showcasing the work of local artists, in Grade II listed White Lodge Mansion.
The park is adjacent to the Lea Rowing Club and opposite Walthamstow Marshes, one of the last semi natural wetlands in Greater London and home to a diverse collection of wildlife. This remarkable environment extends to over 88 acres and with its network of footpaths and cycleways, along with the towpath alongside the river, is the perfect place to unwind from the stresses of daily life.
Further green spaces locally include Clapton Common, midway between Aviv and Springfield Park, a tree covered idyll with a pond and fountain, play area and snack bar. Clissold Park has an aviary and animal enclosures, tennis courts and games area.
