“It’s trendy here but a lot needs to be done to make it safer”
The main vibe of the area is young professional, which is the majority of who you will see on the streets.
The area is a great place to live. The main vibe of the area is young professional, which is the majority of who you will see on the streets. However that being said, there are still a fair amount of children and families and it is a lovely atmosphere for all types of people. It is not so quiet that there is no life or energy, but it is also not rowdy. It’s a very happy area to live and most importantly, I have always felt extremely safe in the area, even at night.
Transport links in this area are amazing. There is access to the Jubilee line from the West Hampstead station and access to both the jubilee and metropolitan lines from Finchley Road. The jubilee line is quick and reliable, arriving every few minutes. The northern line is also just a 15 minute walk to Hampstead. Finchley Road can be very busy at rush hour, but rarely am I not able to fit into the first train that arrives, even during peak times. There is also good overground access from both Finchley and Frognal as well as West Hampstead and the Thameslink runs from West Hampstead which is particularly convenient for flights from Luton or Gatwick. There are also a variety of good bus routes that can easily be picked up along Finchley Road.
My street is quiet and friendly with neighbors who are polite and not nosey. Bins are also collected very frequently. The residents on the street are a mix of renters and owners. There are a lot of young professional renters as well as a good handful of elderly residents.
There is an amazing variety of everything in the area including a small tesco, Sainsbury, Waitrose, and M&S all on West End Lane. For bigger shops there is an easily accessible giant Sainsbury on Finchley Road at the O2 center, which also has a cinema. The area also has a good selection of food options across the spectrum from bakeries such as Lolas, Gails, and Ronis, to Nandos, to a few pubs, and two personal favorites, Alice House, and Bobbyfitzpatrick (a lovely 70s themed cocktail bar with some bites to eat as well). There are also multiple fitness options as well as some green space, or just a lovely neighborhood atmosphere for those who love to be outside. The transport links are also amazing. West End Lane truly has everything you could want!
It's quite posh yet affordable at the same time
About my area I like the fact that is very trendy, close to central London, well linked to central and north London and with a lot of respectful people living here. Having a lot of green spaces all around the area is perfect for pets and children to go for a walk or spend some time outside. I love the fact that we have a lot of bars, pubs and restaurants just around the corner, we have Hampstead heath just about 20 minutes away and a lot of supermarkets and organic food stores and butchers to choose your favourite source of food. It's an extremely safe area having the West Hampstead police station just around the corner. The atmosphere is great especially on the weekend when people fill the pubs and bars and go for walks in the parks. Everyone is friendly, respectful and considerate. That said I strongly believe this is one of the best areas to live in, with a diverse population in general yet keeping it's English originality!
The transport links are impressive with a lot of buses like 139, 328, 113, 13, C11 linking our area to Kilburn and all the way to north & central London! There's 24h night buses as well which link the area to central London. The buses take about 35-40 minutes to get to Oxford Street and they arrive, every around 5-7 minutes or 20-30 minutes during night time. Also there's the West Hampstead tube station which is served by the Jubilee line and is one of the fastests ways to get to central London, it only takes 9 minutes to get there. There's also the West Hampstead overground station just opposite to the underground station and a West Hampstead Thameslink station connecting the neighbourhood to Luton & Brighton! The underground station is very clean & the jubilee line is one of the fastests, most reliable lines in the underground system. Extremely clean with Air conditioning in summer time when the heat is unbearable in other tube lines. Regarding the cycle routes, the area has have an excellent cycling route which can take you to central London in about 15-20 minutes if you follow Finchley road, quite safe and easy going through Regents park or Hyde Park. The traffic is heavy during some specific rush hours but it's like in every other London neighbourhood after all, yet the drivers are very respectful of pedestrians, cyclists, etc. In general the transport links in nw6 are one of the best in all London!
My street is one of the best streets in the area, very quiet with friendly and respectful neighbours. There's parking availability but it's only for the residents so it's more difficult for people from other areas to find parking if they come to visit. There's regular bin collection and it works very smoothly. I haven't seen any anti-social behaviour so far, like I said it's quite a friendly street with lovely people. There isn't traffic noise at all because it's a residential street and only a few cars pass from here. Regarding the residents, the majority of the residents are English families, mostly owners, with few houses that have students and couples who rent. It's a very safe street with West Hampstead police station being just seconds away.
In my opinion Nw6 is one of the best districts to live in, in London! Incorporating the areas of West Hampstead, Kilburn, Brondesbury and Queen's Park, is one of the safest areas to live in especially the West Hampstead area. It's quite posh yet affordable at the same time compared to the nearby Hampstead area which is about 10 minutes walking distance. Quite an exclusive area, with a lot of shops, bars, pubs, fashion shops in the West end, hairdresser salons, quality butchers, etc. Some of the shops that there's on the area include the Hampstead butcher & Providor for it's quality meat, also there's quite a few flower shops, the West Hampstead Library, the weekly farmer's market and a lot of bars including Alice House, the Gallery. Black Lion, Bobby Fitzpatrick, the Alliance etc For a taste of Eastern Europe there's the Czech & Slovak pub serving draft beers and food. Regarding the restaurants there's a lot of nice restaurants around the area like the Cedar restaurant, the wet fish cafe, Ham, Banana tree serving different cuisines, as well as a lot of sushi places, Lebanese cuisine restaurants, Nandos, Dominos pizza, McDonalds, Burger King, Kebab shops and shisha bars which serve food as well. Also there's a lot of supermarkets nearby, there's 2 Tescos just a short distance from each other, Sainsbury's, a bigger Sainsbury's in Finchley Road, a Lidl about 20 minutes away and Iceland again on Finchley Road. Also a lot of organic food stores with quality veggies. There's quite a few gyms and parks nearby with Hampstead heath which is one of the most popular parks in London being only 20 minutes away. In general a lot of green all around! In my honest opinion this area has everything a resident could ask for and it's not missing absolutely anything!
It’s trendy here but a lot needs to be done to make it safer
It’s trendy here but a lot needs to be done to make it safer
There’s Chalk Farm station and Camden station there’s also Kentish Town station and the overground so there is a lot of travel
I live on an estate so I have parking availability however there is a lot of traffic noise. Pretty much all renters most with the council
Everything is going out of businesss it’s quite intimidating walking through Camden or Kentish Town at night as there is a lot to do with drugs going on
The area is very family oriented and people here is very friendly and easy going.

I like how relaxed it is over the weekend, the hussle and bustle during the week can get tiring.
