Live the Dalston life

Indie rock band Razorlight may have named one of their songs ‘Don’t Go Back To Dalston’, but the exact opposite sentiment is true when it comes to buying a home in this vibrant area. Indeed, Dalston has more of a golden touch than ever, while offers such as our stress-busting, money-saving Movemaker scheme are worth their weight in gold. 

Things to see and do in Dalston

Dalston is renowned for its kerbside culture, with an array of vintage shops, eateries and watering holes along Kingsland Road and the streets that shoot off it. You can also enjoy a drink at Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, an eclectic community green space with friendly vibes and an encouragingly collective outlook. 

When you want to go for a stroll either on your own or with your partner, kids or dog, London Fields is on hand to offer a barbecue area and even an outdoor swimming pool too. There’s also Victoria Park nearby, featuring a children’s play area, skatepark and sports facilities over 86 hectares, as well as a boating lake and splash pool. The expansive Lee Valley Park, meanwhile, is only a couple of miles away. 


Dalston is served by a number of outstanding primary schools, including Holy Trinity CofE on Beechwood Road. Queensbridge Primary, London Fields Primary and St. Paul’s With St. Michael’s CofE are all in Ofsted’s top band too, along with Our Lady and St Joseph Catholic Primary. Mossbourne Community Academy next to Hackney Downs is the top local secondary school. 

Dalston transport links

Dalston is on a large number of bus routes, with more than 10 different services passing through or terminating in the area. The local train stations - Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland - are both on the London Overground, providing you with direct access to Liverpool Street station, which is less than 20 minutes away. 

The Dalston property scene

House prices in Dalston are a little higher than the London average, but you can still find great value in this area considering how popular it is and its close proximity to Central London. 

Victorian terraces are the most prominent form of housing, while you can also find modern apartments both in this area and on the edge of Lee Valley Park in nearby Walthamstow. 

Wherever you decide to buy your new home, make sure you check to see if you could take advantage of the London Help to Buy scheme. With this, you only need a 5% deposit and 55% mortgage to buy, with the Government making up the remaining 40% in the form of an equity loan.
