“Great sense of community”
“I like the open spaces and the fact that is not overly built up (for now).”
I love the big parks around my house
I love the big parks around my house. For shopping I'm spoiled with choice as there's a big Lidl, Asda, Aldi, Sainsbury and B and M in 5-10 mins drive away. There's also major high street shops like tk max, Curry's pc world, Home base and big Argos in the same vicinity. The only downside is that there is no gym in walkable distance. The nearest one is drive away in Northolt or Harrow on the hill. It is of no doubt a place suitable and safe for kids and pets.
There's a bus stop right in front of my house which takes me to Harrow and express service to Heathrow airport. Rayner's lane and South Harrow is 15 mins walk. Northolt station is 5 mins on bus. The house is equidistant to 3 major tube lines . There's also dedicated cycle lanes outside my house.
The streets are wide and well lit in the dark. The road is a 4 way lane and hence less traffic. Traffic noise can be a problem due to constant vehicle flow. But my house is well sound proofed so it's a big issue. Mostly it's occupied by south asian and polish community
There's a variety of south asian restaurants and shops. Not to miss there are popular chains like Domino's, Pizza hut, KFC, Cheat meals and Subway. The area is surrounded by lush green parks.
Great sense of community
The area is suitable or children and pets. People in the neighbourhood are very friendly. There is a lot of greenery in the area that makes the area very scenic to look at.
Transport is really close by and there are a lot of train stations in the area to make travelling a breeze. However the area could do with more night busses
My street is extremely quiet with less traffic noise. Bins are always collected regularly and there is a lot of families in my area.
The range of shops area is so diverse and has a huge variety. There are a lot of different types of cuisines to choose from at relatively reasonable prices.
I like the open spaces and the fact that is not overly built up (for now).
It is safe. Children are catered for to some degree although you may have to travel to nearby towns for other activities. There's vast amount of schools to choose many of which are highly rated via ofsted. I like the open spaces and the fact that is not overly built up (for now). I do not like the fact that everything seems to close early and nightlife is borderline non existent. I do not like the fact that children are not catered for in terms of youth clubs, but I believe this is a government issue and effects most of London.
Transport is vastly available, buses and nearby tubes stations as well as great connection into central London. Buses run mostly on time and in plenty and are all in close proximity to local amenities, homes and schools.
It is a vast mix of homeowners and renters. As it is London renting or shared ownership is the preferred or affordable option as homes can range from 450k per 2 bedroom to upwards of 800k or more. Anti social behaviour is few and far between however Wealdstone is known for its anti social behaviour at times but now often enough to be alarmed. Being smart when traveling after 9pm goes without saying anywhere in London.
The area is considered to be relevant for the local community, however although the amenities are fine for those who have adjusted to the somewhat limited town. Amenities in terms of entertainment are few are far between and travel is necessary in order to experience them. Amenities in terms of shops, grocery stores, hair salons etc are available but some are tucked away and usually found my recommendation only.
Friendly place, suitable for children

Easy access to the city but still having a small town atmosphere with plenty of parkland
