There are usually people in the space during the daytime (afternoon/evening is better). However, you might have to tear someone away from their project to let you in and introduce you - this is usually not a problem, but you can't rely on it. Don't be put off if you find the shutters down at the front - we usually use the back gate, and there's a bell there. If you didn't manage to get a tour, pop onto the [[List]] to arrange a day when you can be shown the ropes.

Preliminary plan of Basement
Preliminary plan of Ground Floor

The current home of London Hackspace, leased from Friday 15th March 2013, which we moved into on April 13th. At more than 6500 sq ft (600 m2) over two floors, it's nearly triple the size of our old space, and also includes a large dedicated yard with loading bay.

Even though we've now moved there's still lots to do to make our space more awesome.

How to get there

447 Hackney Road
London
E2 9DY
(map)

If no public events are running, the shutter on Hackney Road may be closed. In this case, access is through our rear gate on Emma Street. For more information on getting to the space, see Getting There

When to Visit

If you haven't visited London Hackspace before, you should drop by on one of our Tuesday open evenings to get a tour around the space. The front door will be open then, and we'll give you a tour and let you know how to join as a member.

If you can't make Tuesday

There are usually people in the space during the daytime (afternoon/evening is better). You are quite likely to get in, but you can't rely on it. If the shutter is down at the front, try the back gate. If you didn't manage to get a tour, pop onto the List to arrange a day when you can be shown the ropes. Drop-in access outside of the regular Tuesday visitor time is not guaranteed.

Access

For members, the code to the rear gate is available on the members site.

The rear door (and the inner front door, when it's open) are locked using Doorbot. Members can open the door using a registered Oyster or other RFID card.

Local Area

  • There is a cash machine directly across the road by the Tesco.
  • Broadway Market and London Fields (for good food) are a 5-minute walk away
  • There is a cash and carry around the corner on Cambridge Heath Road
  • There are many nice Pubs close by:

Pubs

Food

  • Venetian Restaurant/Bar Ombra
  • Brazilian Restaurant/Takeway 'Raizes' (on just-eat) Map
  • The Canteen Cafe, can deliver to the space. We have a menu. Tgreer approves of the breakfasts.
  • Kebab Time on Mare Street (fairly decent cheap chips)
  • Broadway Fish Bar, nearest end of Broadway Market. Expensive, but decent (and has curry sauce!)
  • Cafe Tres on Cambridge Heath Road (turning left at the end of Hackney Road) does good breakfasts.
  • Italian Cafe E.Pellicci 332 Bethnal Green Road (nr. corner of Pollard Row) Great pasta, fantastic atmosphere and amazing early 20C marquetry for all you timber-ticklers!
