8. Discover Turkish food
There is a veritable cornucopia of Turkish delights in Dalston. Kingsland High Street offers a mind boggling array of restaurants for you to choose from. We recommend trying one of the charcoal grill spots or "Ocakbasi". Generous portions, delicious bread, grilled meats and wonderful vegetable side dishes.
9. Silent Cinema in a Cemetery
Abney Park Cemetery is one of the most hauntingly beautiful places in Hackney. Don't let the fact that it is a cemetery put you off or give you the heebie-jeebies. It is well worth a visit and a great place to go for a stroll. Avo is most impressed that it also hosts occasional special events including a silent film night. Don't forget that you will need to B.Y.O.S (bring your own seat). Check out their FB page for more details: Abney Park Facebook
