Hackney's ambitious project to develop Clissold Park and restore the historic Clissold House is due to be completed in January 2012.
Clissold House and its new cafe will open to the public on 3 January. The House will include a new café, beautifully restored function rooms and smaller meeting rooms for private hire and community use.
Free guided tours will be offered throughout January and February 2012. Bookings for tours and function rooms in the House are been taken now. You can find out more here.
