It's quite posh yet affordable at the same time
About my area I like the fact that is very trendy, close to central London, well linked to central and north London and with a lot of respectful people living here. Having a lot of green spaces all around the area is perfect for pets and children to go for a walk or spend some time outside. I love the fact that we have a lot of bars, pubs and restaurants just around the corner, we have Hampstead heath just about 20 minutes away and a lot of supermarkets and organic food stores and butchers to choose your favourite source of food. It's an extremely safe area having the West Hampstead police station just around the corner. The atmosphere is great especially on the weekend when people fill the pubs and bars and go for walks in the parks. Everyone is friendly, respectful and considerate. That said I strongly believe this is one of the best areas to live in, with a diverse population in general yet keeping it's English originality!
The transport links are impressive with a lot of buses like 139, 328, 113, 13, C11 linking our area to Kilburn and all the way to north & central London! There's 24h night buses as well which link the area to central London. The buses take about 35-40 minutes to get to Oxford Street and they arrive, every around 5-7 minutes or 20-30 minutes during night time. Also there's the West Hampstead tube station which is served by the Jubilee line and is one of the fastests ways to get to central London, it only takes 9 minutes to get there. There's also the West Hampstead overground station just opposite to the underground station and a West Hampstead Thameslink station connecting the neighbourhood to Luton & Brighton! The underground station is very clean & the jubilee line is one of the fastests, most reliable lines in the underground system. Extremely clean with Air conditioning in summer time when the heat is unbearable in other tube lines. Regarding the cycle routes, the area has have an excellent cycling route which can take you to central London in about 15-20 minutes if you follow Finchley road, quite safe and easy going through Regents park or Hyde Park. The traffic is heavy during some specific rush hours but it's like in every other London neighbourhood after all, yet the drivers are very respectful of pedestrians, cyclists, etc. In general the transport links in nw6 are one of the best in all London!
My street is one of the best streets in the area, very quiet with friendly and respectful neighbours. There's parking availability but it's only for the residents so it's more difficult for people from other areas to find parking if they come to visit. There's regular bin collection and it works very smoothly. I haven't seen any anti-social behaviour so far, like I said it's quite a friendly street with lovely people. There isn't traffic noise at all because it's a residential street and only a few cars pass from here. Regarding the residents, the majority of the residents are English families, mostly owners, with few houses that have students and couples who rent. It's a very safe street with West Hampstead police station being just seconds away.
In my opinion Nw6 is one of the best districts to live in, in London! Incorporating the areas of West Hampstead, Kilburn, Brondesbury and Queen's Park, is one of the safest areas to live in especially the West Hampstead area. It's quite posh yet affordable at the same time compared to the nearby Hampstead area which is about 10 minutes walking distance. Quite an exclusive area, with a lot of shops, bars, pubs, fashion shops in the West end, hairdresser salons, quality butchers, etc. Some of the shops that there's on the area include the Hampstead butcher & Providor for it's quality meat, also there's quite a few flower shops, the West Hampstead Library, the weekly farmer's market and a lot of bars including Alice House, the Gallery. Black Lion, Bobby Fitzpatrick, the Alliance etc For a taste of Eastern Europe there's the Czech & Slovak pub serving draft beers and food. Regarding the restaurants there's a lot of nice restaurants around the area like the Cedar restaurant, the wet fish cafe, Ham, Banana tree serving different cuisines, as well as a lot of sushi places, Lebanese cuisine restaurants, Nandos, Dominos pizza, McDonalds, Burger King, Kebab shops and shisha bars which serve food as well. Also there's a lot of supermarkets nearby, there's 2 Tescos just a short distance from each other, Sainsbury's, a bigger Sainsbury's in Finchley Road, a Lidl about 20 minutes away and Iceland again on Finchley Road. Also a lot of organic food stores with quality veggies. There's quite a few gyms and parks nearby with Hampstead heath which is one of the most popular parks in London being only 20 minutes away. In general a lot of green all around! In my honest opinion this area has everything a resident could ask for and it's not missing absolutely anything!
West Hampstead is a very beautiful area where to live, full of nice restaurants and shops.
I like the park we have especially for the summer .. you can just grab a drink and meet someone at the park. Also the pubs we have are very nice and for when you are hungry you just need to choose what kind of food you want , you can find basically anything
The area is very well connected. You have the jubilee line and just opposite the overground station. Bus are also running quite often and they can take you to the city center in only half and hour. I would just avoid the morning between 8/9 .. it can get very busy and it might be better to rely on the tube rather than the busses.
In the area you can find living different kind of people, from students to couples or families. The area is well covered by pubs and restaurants so is attracting a lot of young people or people in their thirties. Also there is no much traffic except in the morning , there is a little nice park and the police station is just at the end of the Main Street .
West Hampstead is a very beautiful area where to live, full of nice restaurants and shops. One of the beat thing is the variety of restaurants you can find : from Italian to Lebanese to Thai or Japanese. Few of my favourite restaurants are Feng Sushi, Bellaluna and Banana Tree. Also you can find many different coffe shops from big chain like Costa or Caffè Nero to small indipendent shops. If you are celiac or just following a gluten free diet then you really need to check this place out: Lola... you can enjoy a nice English breakfast completely gluten free or you can just grab a coffe and an amazing cupcake. In the area also you can find so many supermarkets: Tesco express, Little Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Mark’s and Spencer. If you want to cook at home and you need some nice meet then you definitely need to try the Hampstead butcher and providore. You won’t find just the best meat but charcuterie and food from Italy or France. There are also different charity shops so if you want to help you can just pop in and buy something.
It is a relatively peacefull and quite area with relatively low crime rat

It is a relatively peacefull and quite area with relatively low crime rate compared to the rest of London and it is clean

The area is very family oriented and people here is very friendly and easy going.

I like how relaxed it is over the weekend, the hussle and bustle during the week can get tiring.

You live close to city center but far enough to not be in the fast pacing middle.
