As many of you will know Field Day has occupied Victoria Park for a day for the past 6 years now (Apple Cart is 2 this year!) so we have had plenty of opportunities to get out and about and discover the gems of the area (of which there are many…). We haven’t done this before but we thought we’d highlight a few places around the area to grab a coffee, have a post-Field Day drink or do a bit of shopping/eating for anybody who will be around Victoria Park early on the day - or even for those of you in London looking for something to do on a weekend before the festival. Here’s our little index below…
“This huge 19th-century pub beside Victoria Park has a large garden (complete with busy ‘garden grill’ in summer), a main bar decorated with Victoriana and Eagle-style comic annuals that serves creditable pub fare and, tucked away at the side, a full-blown dining room…” Time Out
