“Trendy area but divide between rich and poor is made very apparent”
Great for commuting, easy travel links, but lacks outdoor lifestyle
It’s very convenient if you work or study in the city as you can walk or cycle. I’ve noticed a lot of people here using e scooters to get about now for commuting purposes. There’s a lot of restaurants nearby and a lot of independent ones which is nice to see. The main downside is that I don’t really know many of my neighbours. The atmosphere is young professional, a little trendy but up and coming to an extent with some parts needing regeneration. This area is okay for children but no so great for pets. I feel safe in this area.
Where I’m based is located to several stations both on the Underground and Thameslink within a few minutes walk - Chancery Lane, Farringdon, Kings Cross St Pancras, Holborn. There’s also a good bus network, Santander bikes located everywhere too. The transport links are reliable, regular and clean. The traffic can be a little bad on High Holborn and Grays Inn Road during the busier times. This area is located on the night tube and there’s plenty of buses so getting around is never an issue.
The parking available is quiet limited to be honest but there’s no restrictions on a Sunday. The bins are collected regularly. There’s not much traffic noise as it’s a residential road. There’s a mix of homeowners and renters at least that’s what I’m aware of. It isn’t really a student area so it doesn’t get too noisy. It’s mostly single people and couples from what I’ve noticed.
There’s some shops on Grays Inn Rd nearby, mostly small restaurants but a lot more on High Holborn. If you’re looking for more street food vendors then Leather Lane is just a short walk away. There aren’t too many supermarkets nearby, there’s a Co-Op and that’s pretty much it to be honest. There’s a few pubs but they are mostly located on High Holborn. On that road, there’s also Bounce bar. There aren’t many open green spaces but a short walk away near Holborn station is Lincoln Inn Fields which is lively with university students. On High Holborn is trendy but very business heavy with offices so it makes it a great location to be in. There are countless gyms nearby with a budget to suit everyone. The main amenities that are missing is probably a larger supermarket and an outdoor bar or restaurant.
It has everything you need and you can walk to almost any central London attraction.
I feel really safe in the area - i’d say it’s suitable for all, but Exmouth Market has become a ‘trendy’ spot and Ian extreme busy on Thursday evenings and the weekend. It has everything you need and you can walk to almost any central London attraction.
The area is close to a number of fantastic transport links - Kings Cross, Angel, Russel Square and Farringdon are all within a short walk. Busses are very frequent and connect you to all parts of London. There’s also the Eurostar nearby for very convenient European getaways.
It’s a lovely quiet street with plenty of off-street parking. There are a wide variety of residents - owners, renters, students, couples and family’s who are all attracted to the area for its amenities and attractiveness location. There is little traffic and noise levels are usually, very low.
There are a huge range of independent local shops, bars and restaurants in the area, which most of the time are buzzing! Exmouth Market especially, has a fantastic atmosphere. Next to Exmouth Market is Spa Fields which is great if you’d rather relax outside with friends, or family. It’s spacious and really well kept. In terms of amenities, I can’t think of anything the local area doesn’t have!
Trendy area but divide between rich and poor is made very apparent
Trendy area but divide between rich and poor is made very apparent There should be a divide Should all live together as equals
Transport links are good . Everything had different tyrpevs of transport modes . Reliability is good and 24 hour services is good too
A bit too much bad people n the area at night makes it scary to go out street noise is s decent even level could be beyter
Everything is okay Standard stuff Okay quality Could be better The market square is good. Good range of small businesses mixed with large popular companies
Who needs a car as there are so many different bus routes and 2 tube stations
