. I would say some areas are trendy and some in need of regeneration

Most people are nice and helpful. I would say some areas are trendy and some in need of regeneration, it’s a bit of both. One thing I forgot to mention previously is there are quite a lot of schools in the area, therefore, parents will literally be spoilt for choice regarding school choice. Most people have pets as well, so anyone with pets would fit in nicely.

Transport

The transportation links are awesome. You can literally get to Westend in 10-15 minutes by bus. If you don’t fancy hopping on the bus, there’s the underground, which also has an overground trains and if you need to go outside London, you can link quickly from King’s Cross station to get trains that go outside London.

Community

In terms of parking, it has now become rubbish to be honest. In my area, parking in residents or kings spots is no longer allowed on the road Monday-Saturday 24 hours for visitors, therefore, pay and display has to be used and it is very expensive to do so. Also, considering the fact that this is a congestion charge area, anyone who wishes to commute via car, needs to consider the fact that the daily rate of £15 will be required of them, so you could quite easily spend £30-50 just driving into this area. Also, some roads have now become zero emission roads (Beech Street) or for only residents (Fortune Street), therefore, if you not not exempt to drive on those roads, you will receive a £65 penalty charge. This also means, you can get stuck in traffic on the Old Street roundabout as this has now been changed to suit cyclists (numpties).

Amenities

There are quite a few shops such as Waitrose, Co-Op, Sainsbury’s local, Tesco Express. The only disadvantage with this area is the nearest big Tesco is around Bethnal Green and Sainsbury’s in Angel and Iceland is Hoxton. Therefore, you always end up paying a little extra for groceries. However, that being said, if you’re not really into cooking, you won’t lack places to eat as there are restaurants dotted on almost every corner of the streets and Monday to Friday a street food market is in operation on Whitecross Street, a selection of cuisines are available to choose from and it runs till about 2.30pm. There are also a variety of pubs again almost on every corner of the streets, therefore, people who like to hang out with friends will not lack where to go. For those with families, there are parks as well. There’s a big sand park on the King’s Square estate and other little play grounds dotted around as well. There is a Leisure centre with a swimming pool as well called Ironmonger Row Baths. It also has a spa and a gym. There is a 24 hour gym called the Gym as well. So whether you are single or a family person, there’s something for everyone.

Trendy area, off the beaten (and worn out) urban city path

Trendy area, off the beaten (and worn out) urban city path, so it's convenient but not crazy (unlike Soho, Shoreditch or Hackney). Feels safe.

Transport

Very well connected by bus, tube and train to other parts of London and beyond. Also easy access to cycle lanes and cycle ways, which makes it easy to cycle across London in all directions from here.

Community

Mostly commercial offices in the area which makes it quiet in the weekend (which is nice). Council amenities/services like bin collection etc are well maintained/provided. Parking is tricky though, with limited lots and congestion charges, so best to be taking public transport.

Amenities

Centre of London, what more can I say? Incredibly central and convenient area to live with almost all other areas of London (Soho, Shoreditch, Islington, South Bank, and beyond) within easy reach (even walkable), well connected by public transport to areas further afield, but also quiet and not crazy congested like other parts of the City, with lots of local flavour amenities (bars, pubs, restaurants, cafes) in the area. Bear in mind though, not as much open space and large green areas nearby as other parts of London, but easy enough to get to these places by public transport, if that's what you're looking for. Great area to live for an urbanite.

It’s being regenerated but I think COVID will be very bad for prosperity locally

Transport

Tube services at old street, Barbican and Farringdon. Farringdon is excellent for tube, train and thameslink giving great access from London Bridge, Kings Cross and beyond

Community

Lots of businesses in the area. A mix of owners and rented. Some social housing too. It’s an area that is being gentrified.

Amenities

Loads of pubs, bars and restaurants for both lunches and evening. Italian delis in the area are good and the slaughtered lamb pub is excellent for outside drinking
