The London Borough of Hackney is a London borough in the northeast of inner London, formed in 1965 out of the former metropolitan boroughs of Hackney, Shoreditch and Stoke Newington. It is one of the poorest boroughs but home to numerous clubs and a centre of the London arts scene.

Unlike most English districts, its council is led by a directly-elected mayor, currently Jules Pipe.

Hackney is one of five host boroughs for London's bid for the 2012 Olympics.

The borough includes the following areas:

Demographics of Hackney

The 2001 census gives Hackney a population of 202,824. It is 60% white, 12% black African, 10% Black Caribbean and 4% Indian. 32% of householders are owner-occupiers.

Transport links

Hackney is the only inner London borough north of the Thames that has no London Underground stations other than those on its borders with other boroughs. Manor House is in the extreme north-west of the borough and on the boundary with Haringey and Old Street is in the extreme south-west and on the border with Islington.

Transport for London plan to extend the East London Line northwards through the borough reusing some of the abandoned line between Dalston Junction and Broad Street with stations at Shoreditch High Street, Hoxton, Haggerston and Dalston Junction.

The Silverlink North London Line and the 'one' West Anglia pass through the borough with the following stations within its boundary:

North London Line stations (west to east)

'one' West Anglia stations (north to south)
