Convenient & accessible living, one of the best areas to live in

What I like the most about my area is the convenient location and accessibility to services needed from day to day. I would say it could do with a bit of regeneration and modernisation in terms of aspect and the flats which seem to be getting old, such as the one I live in. The area is safe for children and pets and close to parks and green spaces for recreation. Only a bus journey away, Hampstead heath is one of my favourite retreats where anyone can enjoy a day out with family and pets.

Transport

Buses are always reliable, as well as the tube and the overground. It has a great advantage for not being one of the busiest areas to live in, as well as the bakerloo line not being so popular - even during rush hours, the carriage feels always comfortable to travel in, instead of packed. Cleanliness is certainly taken seriously during this pandemic. Traffic can get a little bit busy during rush hour by bus towards Central London, as I've had the experience to be delayed around 30 minutes due to traffic jam in Marble Arch. Otherwise, every location feels very easily accessible from my area.

Community

I believe around this area there is a variety of people, from young people to elderly, families and couples with children who can be seen on the high street after class. Both owners and renters. During the day, the high street is busy - more uncomfortably one would feel passing by beggars at times, however they don't seem to cause issues find a place to stay during the night. The streets are empty and quiet at night. In terms of parking, it seems difficult for one to find any availability as most homeowners also park their cars on the side road and there is no private parking space. Bin collection is always reliable.

Amenities

The area I live in is incredibly well situated in relationship to essential shops and services. Both the tube and overground services are within 5 minutes' reach, as well as the high street where there is a variety of services, shops and big supermarkets which make living & shopping very accessible. I also appreciate that this area is well-kept, quiet during the night and full of life and diversity during the day, and it feels safe for one who works during unsociable hours. To add on this, the connection to Central London is very, very comfortable, having a lot of regular bus routes even throughout the night, and the tube journey to Oxford Circus only taking 15 minutes. It definitely feels like a hidden gem for living conveniently.

London’s hidden gem.

I think the life that I have created in my local area is great. It is a great area to bring up your children, as there are several local high schools, which are also very reputable to attend. There are also great childcare options if you are a working parent and need that support. The area is also great for pets, as a lot of our neighbours are pet owners and there are lots of areas to walk your dogs, etc. I would consider this area to be safe.

Transport

The transport in this area is great as we have both underground services as well as overground services. Also, we have a lot of bus links around here, for example we have the 31 bus which will take you to Camden Town as well as the 98 bus which will take you to central London. Not forgetting bus 16 which will take you to Victoria.

Community

Living on my street specifically is great as there is a real feel of community here. Our neighbours look out for eachother and it is almost like living with family. Further, we have local parks where the kids can play in the summer time as well as a big playground area.

Amenities

The quality of life in this area is good. We have a mix of a lot is leisure activities such as parks for the children to play at during the warmer days as well as a lot of shopping opportunities such as TKMaxx, Primark, Clarkes and other local charity shops. We also have a mix of different supermarkets to buy groceries at for example: M&S Simply Food, Sainsbury’s, Iceland, Tesco and Aldi. We are also very close to central London; it is just a short busy journey away Oxford Street. Living here, we get to experience the best of both worlds - quiet as well as busy when needed.

Too many council estates nearby.

Area feels unsafe. Generally dirty. Too many council estates nearby.

Transport

Connected to the bakerloo, overground and jubilee line. Lots of local buses. Driving is a pain now due to covid pacement extensions. Some places walking distance.

Community

Parking is ok but expensive. Can easily get visitors permits. No traffic noise. People here are mostly working couples. Some families. Most places have gardens. Pretty trees on the streets.

Amenities

Loads of lovely shops and bars. Good places for coffee nearby. Cheap shops on the high road and better quality mofe expensive shops near Queens Park
