The shiny 2010 rebuild of Dalston Junction replaces the Hackney Borough's 1865 station, which closed in 1986. On the Overground East London Line, Dalston Junction is at the northern end and runs services south around every 15 minutes to West Croydon, Crystal Palace New Cross and Clapham Junction. With 3.2 million journeys leaving its two-tiered station every year, there's no mistaking Dalston as a lively community on the rise, thanks to the arrival of the East London Line and its role as one of the 2012 Olympic host boroughs. The Guardian newspaper claimed Dalston as the 'coolest place to live in Britain', and Kingsland Road positively heaves with independent shops and high-street names, on-trend eateries and bars. Possibly one of the cooler spots to head to is just over the road from Dalston Junction station: the old train station, now Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, is a garden oasis where you can green your fingers or just enjoy a beer or coffee.
