Discover the charm of de Beauvoir: A tranquil "village" in London

Area Guide for De Beauvoir, London N1

Bordered by Shoreditch, Dalston, Canonbury, and Shacklewell, De Beauvoir Town, in the London Borough of Hackney is better described as a village, such is its friendly, community-minded feel. De Beauvoir has plenty going on – just in a quieter, more peaceful setting.

The area is particularly popular with families due to its elegant Victorian villas and terraces, many of which feature good-sized gardens and are situated on tree-lined no-through roads, creating a sense of tranquility and safety. For this reason, many who move here tend to stay and grow roots, meaning that property is hard to come by and sells at a premium.

Originally built as a carefully planned new town in the mid-19th century, De Beauvoir Town covers just over a quarter of a square mile and was built around the striking Jacobean-style De Beauvoir Square. While much of the Victorian housing in the southern part of De Beauvoir was lost to industrial or social housing redevelopment, the remaining homes are now protected by Conservation Area status, ensuring the area's rich architectural heritage is preserved for future generations.

There are also a number of warehouse conversions and new-build developments located along the Kingsland Basin and Regent's Canal. Small artists' studios also call De Beauvoir Town home, adding to the area's creative and bohemian vibe.

Despite its tranquil vibe, De Beauvoir Town has a surprising amount of amenities. A few local shops can be found on Southgate Road, and there are an increasing number of cafes, restaurants, art galleries, vinyl record stores, boutiques, and shops selling home goods.

Haggerston Station is just a short walk across Kingsland Road from De Beauvoir Square. This station connects with the Victoria line at Highbury & Islington and provides access to 
Shoreditch, Canary Wharf, and beyond. Additionally, the area is well-served by buses, and it is only a short cycle or walk to the City.

In summary, De Beauvoir Town perfectly balances tranquillity and urban convenience. With its elegant Victorian homes, creative and bohemian atmosphere, and easy access to transport links, it is an ideal place to call home for families, professionals, and artists alike.
