From late-night parties to excellent comprehensive schools, living in Dalston certainly does offer a little bit of everything. Seen as more residential than Shoreditch, and better for nightlife than Islington, Dalston is the go-to neighborhood for young partygoers and families. It’s quite the mix.
A combination of old and new, Dalston features lively settings at Kingsland Road and plenty of tree-lined residential streets just off the main thoroughfare. The north-east London postcode is high in demand and is awash with creativity, boutique shops and the latest restaurants.
