Sonia and Abed offer a warm welcome at Markfield Park Café, located in Markfield Park, one of Tottenham's hidden gems, located right by the River Lea, home to swans, ducks, rowing boats and houseboats. You can walk or cycle along the towpath south towards the City via Hackney or north towards Tottenham Hale...
Not to be missed is the magnificent Victorian Beam Engine, which is open October to March (Second Sunday of each month) and April to September (Second and fourth Sundays of each month). The Markfield Beam Engine is a working engine, so do take a look a the Markfield Beam Engine website, where there is more information about the engine, its history, opening and steaming times.
The Café offers lots of toys for indoor and outdoor play for children and Markfield Park has a children's playground, MUGA (multi-user games area) with basketball hoops, football pitches as well as wide open grassy spaces. Tucked behind the Cafe is a BMX Park and if the bikers are around, you'll see some amazing feats (for safety, do keep away from the edges).
There is a wide range of coffees, teas, soft drinks, in addition to wine and beer with panini, baguettes, baked potatoes, falafel and all day breakfasts.
WIFI is available and if you want to escape from technology, there are books to borrow too!
If you'd like to get more involved with Markfield Park, please contact Friends of Markfield Park.
