There are a variety of different businesses who call The Benyon Estate 'home'. From independently owned restaurants, delicatessens and florists, to artists, stonemasons and marketing agencies the community is a creative, flourishing one. We support our local businesses to enable them to grow, encouraging collaboration wherever we can within the community.
Some of these independent shops, cafés and artists’ studios are located on and around the heart of the estate – Southgate Road, and others can be found in The Block – just a five-minute walk from Haggerston and Dalston Junction over-ground stations and on the Cycle Superhighway.
