  • If you want a slow leisurely walk in a beautiful park on the border of Islington and Hackney this is it. Well maintained grounds and wonderful scenery close to Stoke Newington Church Street.  more »
  • Good park to visit for a small London family with kids and a picnic dont really go to the cafe too healthy for my taste  more »
  • My daughter was married at Clissold House and it was a great place, sun shining, bride and groom beaming, guests applauding. The place selected was chosen by our daughter and son-in-law and provided a very happy occasion, with lots of smiling faces. The well kept park offers many different photo opportunities, with plenty of space to wander, a small herd of fallow deer in an enclosure, a couple of goats, ideal for children interested in animals.
  • One of my favourite parks in London. Cafe is fab and a lovely place for a wedding. Dog walkers and families are welcome. The rose garden is gorgeous in June. Summer isn't complete without a boozy picnic here.
