Addison Lee are 30% cheaper than some Stoke Newington taxi services

A taxi driver's guide to Stoke Newington

Looking for a Stoke Newington taxi? Need to know where you’re going first? Follow our guide to the area and you’ll never get lost again. We’ve found the area’s best pubs, bars, bistros, burger joints and brasseries so you don’t have to. Read on for the inside scoop. “Stoke Newington” – bit of a mouthful, right? Pare it down to “Stokey” and you’re immediately on brand with the locals. Easy as that. The other thing to remember is that from the inside looking out, this idyllic, multicultural portal to North London is less a district or parish, and far more an actual ‘village’. The argument goes that between the leafy plains of Clissold Park and the endless artisan bakeries of Church Street, Stokey is a parish in the truly traditional sense of the word. Critics would argue that the area’s pastoral charm is simply a reflection of its isolation. That its more middle class occupants only moved here because once upon a time – when London house prices hadn’t quite gone completely crazy – Stokey was still a steal on account of its poor transport links. But of course that’s no longer the case. Like anywhere else in North London, Stoke Newington has fallen foul of a soaring cost of living and, like its neighbour Dalston has continued to see its stock rise exponentially over the past decade. But there is still a certain halcyon charm to Stokey that you just can’t shrug off. It still bears all the hallmarks of its varied cultural tapestry. Turkish baths and bright little furnitures stores to one side, lovely bohemian Church Street to the other. And not many places the size of Stoke Newington can boast two such lovely parks on their doorstep (Clissold & Abney). Addison Lee have been serving the people of London since 1975. During that time we like to think we’ve created a private hire service to rival any Stoke Newington taxi firm. We’re 30% cheaper than black cabs, we never charge extra if we’re busy and we’re oh so easy to book (just tap the app or use this website – you can even call if you’re feeling old fashioned). Let us guide you through this charming corner of N19 so you never fall foul of costly Stoke Newington taxi services ever again.
