“Not feeling safe is the worst part of living in this area”
The best thing about my area, I would say, are the facilities, restaurants and the fact that we all know each other
The best thing about my area, I would say, are the facilities, restaurants and the fact that we all know each other, like a big family. We have good relations with many neighbours, even from a few streets away, and we make friends easily. There are many nice people, which make life easier and nicer. The main problem above all, is the lack of cleanliness. We all have a responsibility to keep our area clean, which we do, but some people just don’t know how to treat our area. They just make it harder for us to live. It’s not a modern area, but it is nice. I would say it’s safe, but it would be better if pets were allowed in our building, but I guess that’s just our building/flat.
I would say that there are many bus stops, train stations and cycle routes around my area, but the cleanliness is not good. The service is ok, but could be a lot better. They can’t really handle when there are many people, but I get along just fine when I’m on any public transport.
There are parking spaces, but not enough free ones; you need a permit. There are a lot of thugs and homeless, especially in the night, but they are harmless. There are mostly renters on my street, renting from the council usually. There are a mixture of couples and families, but not many students.
In my area, there are many facilities that can be used by everyone that lives there, including gyms, leisure centres, cinemas and restaurants etc. There is at least one Restaurant or food place on every street, like KFC, McDonald’s and many more. There are nice people and there are a lot of people, and the only thing I see as a problem is crime and low hygiene. Other than that, I love my area!
Great particularly for families
One thing that seems very important to mention is that there is a community centre on our street that was particularly helpful during the pandemic as they distributed free food parcels to the neighbourhood but they also offer childcare, clubs and trips. There are two parks, a children’s park within the estate (accessible to anyone) and a dog park a minute’s walk further. There is a local shop a minute away, a few pubs and a local sainsbury and tesco and a cinema 10 minutes walk away.
As I already mentioned, there many train stations within walking distance, making a significant amount of journeys permissable, such as Tower Gateway, Tower Hill, Aldgate, Aldgate East and larger stations such as Fenchurch and Liverpool St, all of which are generally reliable. The traffic can be pretty bad sometimes, particularly from 4-6, but some days you can get lucky. I’d say it’s more an area meant to people who make use of public transport but it is also not impossible to have a car, as we have one. The traffic is not too bad depending on your direction, for example the Highway is pretty busy, the direction of Southwark, Limehouse, but smaller roads such as Leman St, Alie St, aren’t too bad. Buses include 15, 100 and others going in pretty much every direction except towards Limehouse/Docklands. The buses do not come to often however and I would suggest using train.
The only issue with my street would be parking availability is pretty bad, traffic noise occasionally but genuinely not so often. The street is mainly filled with families. Bin collection is pretty good too, with loads of bins around.
There are many things in the local area, exciting places to go that are a 5-15 minute walk. Tower bridge and the Tower of London, St Katherine’s Docks with restaurants that have the view of boats and water (particularly beautiful at night) for example Zizzi’s and Kilikiya. Just across the bridge there is The Ivy, Vapianos and more new restaurants to come in that vicinity. Not far from important stations such as Fenchurch, Liverpool St and very close to stations such as Tower Gateway, Tower Hill, Aldgate and Aldgate East. Not to mention Central London is a short drive away.
Not feeling safe is the worst part of living in this area
Not feeling safe is the worst part of living in this area. Needs a complete renovation.
Bit far away from the tube station but is doable. Transport links have a good service and it’s always easy to get back no matter where you’re travelling from at what time of day.
Close to a McDonalds, close to a hospital. Tesco express is useful for grabbing what you need. Bin collections regular.
Good food options but not much else to do. Not many bars around or places with fun activities. Needs more open space as currently feels very cramped.
I like the accessibility and that’s my favorite advantage of this area
