Overall, not the worst area to live in.

The area is certainly i need of major investment and the infrastucture is quite old and poor. Many of the buildings are old council flats and are quite over-crowded. As a result, the area does have quite a few families that live in homes that are too small and are of poor quality. Furthermore, the area is constantly over-populated and leads to issues such as dirty streets, packed markets, rubbish bins over-flowing and constant traffic.

Transport

If I had to choose what I love most about the area it would be how fantastic the transport links are and just how easy it is to get from one area to another. There many stations within reasonable walking distance such as Edgware road stations (B and C), Baker street station, Paddinton station, St John's wood andany more. Also, there are so many bus stops you can honestly lose count, the number of different bus routes makes it by far the most popular method. Laslty, there are many bike stations that offer London bikes for short and long rentals, parking spots for cars and even electric bikes on the streets. On the downside, the traffic can be awful during the rush-hour so that is qorth considering, pkus the area can get incredibly busy and crowded. Overall, 5 stars.

Community

Overall, the area is very lively and convenient for food and everday items. There are also many cafes and restaurants nearby that offer Alcohol and Shisha. In addition, you'll find many gyms and parks that are within walking diatance or a short drive away.

Amenities

There are a wide range of restaurants to choose from, this includes well known franchises such as Domino's, Pizza Hut and KFC. However, there are also many small privately owned restarurants that offer a wide range of Middle Eastern food such as Lebanese, Kurdish, Turkish and Iraqi. Bars are not very common, however there are a few pubs such as the famous Crockers Folly. The amount of local shops and supermarkets is very impressive, these include mini-supermarkets that offer a range of fruits, vegtables and everday times, as well as well known stores such as Tesco and Sainsbury's.

Perfect area of London!

Personally, I wouldn’t change it for any other area in London. Paddington is a ten minute walk and has all the bank branches which I find very useful. It’s a 5 minute walk to Hyde Park from there. Edgware Road has every restaurant and dessert place you can think of, it is at it’s best in the summer evenings. You forgot you’re in central London. Church Street Market is also worth going to every now and then as it tends to be very busy but it’s a great experience. Incredible fresh fish, fruit and vegetable and fabric stalls amongst everything else! On the other side of NW8 is Marylebone where you have museums, cafes, the high street and so much more. Little Venice canal is perfect for walks in any season. It really is beautiful,(although full of tourists during the summer making it a little tight for space)! St John’s Wood is my personal favourite, local cafes as well as chains which I do prefer most of the time but also has a lovely high street and park. Having worked in and attended primary and secondary school in the area, I can attest that the schools in the area are brilliant. There are many to choose from and they are all very good.

Transport

Access to the underground is a 10 minute walk for Edgware Road station and 15 minutes for either St John’s Wood or Marylebone station. Many buses all around the area with a variation of routes. A cycle route is also nearby on Little Venice.

Community

Parking availability is usually fine. Bin collection is regularly and very good. My building is the only one on my street so we have minimal traffic noise. It’s a building of mainly families and no students. A lot of the area is mainly families that have lived in the area for many years. Not a lot of students.

Amenities

Really good quality of local restaurants. Many different types of cuisines in the area ranging in price. Very good independent cafes but there are also many chains such as Pret, Starbucks, Nero etc. Great open spaces such as parks, Sheldon Square, Little Venice canal.

Disappointing and residential area

At John’s wood is nice to walk and there is nice cafés there, and the proximity to the city is wonderful as you can walk to Oxford street.

Transport

It is well communicated. We have the jubilee line ten minutes walking from here, and you can definitely walk Oxford street or Camden l. There is always buses running around the area but the traffic horrible sometimes

Community

There is a bus stop next to my street and at the end of it there is a Tesco and a few delis shops

Amenities

Well, the area is seen as a residential posh area and it is true. There is a few council states around but most of the streets are full of posh and expensive houses. St Johns wood is very popular for wealthy people and they don’t doubt to buy an overpriced coffee. There is a couple of pubs around the area but extremely overpriced. On the other side of th road there is church market street full of cheap fruit and vegetables stands, but with dubious quality.

The only downsides to living here is that the A40 highway is going right nearby so sometimes there is a lot of traffic
