A sense of community around the greatest park in London

I love that there is so much to see in my area, I've lived there for 2 years but feel like I've barely scratched the surface - just a month ago I discovered a beautiful cycle route to Greenwich starting just 5 minutes away from my home. There are so many places to see friends that I never have too far to go (friends from Clapham or generally south London are clambering to come to Hackney and Victoria Park). It's so easy to shop ethically as well, which is great and I never feel like I'm missing anything. The general atmosphere is that it's trendy and quirky, but not as gentrified and expensive as Hackney or other parts of London. This means that rent is still cheaper and there are still locally owned businesses. For young people especially its a great place to live that allows you to see the best aspects of London right on your doorstep.

Transport

Being so close to the centre it's incredibly easy to travel, being 5 min walk from Bethnal Green tube station (Central Line) and 10 min walk from Stepney Green (District, Circle, Hammersmith and City). Also a huge amount of buses including the 8 which heads to the city centre. On top of this, there are many good cycling routes nearby both for pleasure and commuting, although cycling around Bethnal Green itself can be a bit scary.

Community

Living in a block of flats I feel safe and have nice neighbours (mostly young families), mostly renters around. There is a huge sense of community, and Roman Road is a centre of culture and there is always something interesting going on. Parking is available nearby but it can be tricky without a permit during busier times.

Amenities

Really close to lovely parts of London such as Hackney Central, Homerton, Brick Lane, and the wonderful Victoria Park with its huge market, so there's rarely any need to shop online. Also a variety of cheap supermarkets and a huge Sainsbury's about 15 min walk away. Lots of great pubs and bars, and plenty of good restaurants with options for dietary requirements.

Lovely place to live in with shops being a walking distance and Westfield Stratford 2 stops away on train.

I would say this area is very safe to live in. I love the fact that everything is walking distance from here. We have a few parks, shops, eateries and local supermarkets.

Transport

We have three train stations that are local to us, many bus routes too. I would say 32 years of living here and I’ve never had a problem going from one destination to another using public transport. We also have a couple of local taxi firms if more comfortable travelling in cars. I would say public transport is highly reliable. Ofcourse there have been delays some days but employees are very helpful.

Community

My street has both home owners and renters. We have a mixture of families and couples living here. Very quite where I live and away from traffic. We are able to rent out parking spaces but sadly the cost of visitors parking is very expensive and very hard to get hold of parking round here.

Amenities

Bethnal Green has a variety of popular supermarkets such as Tesco, Iceland and Sainsbury. The area also has a good variety of independent grocery stores and corner shops as well as a market selling variety of things from fruit and veg, to home goods to clothing. It also has a range of ethnic shops selling Asian attires, cafes selling delicious breakfast and lunches, fried chicken shops and a couple of pubs that have been there for a very long period of time. Short walking distance is popular spitalfield market and shoreditch, which again has a variety of cafes and eateries. Overall, this area is a delight and safe place to live in with everything available at walking distance. I would say the area has everything that is needed (minus a shopping centre lol). It has a train station and many buses going through the area. Love it.

Cheap and Livable

In need of regeneration

Transport

2 major train stations, one 5 min walk away (Whitechapel) and the other 10min walk away (Bethnal Green). Both are not clean but are reliable with train timings.

Community

Lots of parking, dependable bin collection, little bit of anti-social behaviour but not a big deal, little traffic noise, people living on my street are mostly families

Amenities

Range and quality of local shops: gigantic Sainsbury 5min walking away with all groceries, pharmacy, etc inside. Range and quality of local restaurants: Nandos is very good for eat-in dining 10min walking going south, and some decent restaurants (South American, British, etc) 15min walking away going north.
