Local Area

Cass is based on Well Street in Hackney, close to Victoria Park. It is only 4km (2.5 miles) away from the City of London and is conveniently situated for most Central, North and East London universities.

The Hall enjoys good transport links. When the tube stops there are still night buses that can get you from wherever you are back to Cass.

All your most important shopping needs are right on your doorstep. Tesco is just a one minute walk away. There is also a newsagent, post office, bakers and a few cafés nearby. There are plenty of local pubs and just a stroll away is Broadway Market with its buzzing culture. Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford is easy to get to and, if flowers and plants are your thing, you can also jump on a bus and make your way to Columbia Road Flower Market.

A 15 minute bus ride will get you into trendy Hoxton if you like clubbing or just hanging around watching the world go by.
