This area is my dream place and wouldn't leave at any cost

The area is suitable for children in the streets, but it can be busy and noisy on the main high road with cars and buses. This area is my dream place and wouldn't leave at any cost. If you can aford to live here, then it would be the best move you would ever make.

Transport

london transport is very good. Many tube stations and buses, for local stops or to go straight to inner London. Its easy to catch a black cab and local bus stops are everywhere.

Community

There are many shops and pubs in the area so it can get quite busy especially at peak times and evenings. The local folks are friendly. It's not quite as modern as the inner part of the city, most houses are victorian in design and can be expensive to rent or buy - there is a premium to live in this part of London. The area is very clean and tidy with street bins and during the evening the street lights are quite bright which helps us to feel safe and secure.

Amenities

Shopping is fantastic in this area whether it be buying a phone, a pair of shoes or your weekly food shop. They're all a stone throw away from each other. Parks and outdoor space is limited, but the common is only a 5 minute walk away where you can relax after a good shop.

The atmosphere is amazing and the area is definitely suitable for children.

I love the area I live in, it’s a beautiful and trendy area. The atmosphere is amazing and the area is definitely suitable for children. There are loads of primary and secondary schools near the area which are great schools and parks you can take your kids or pets to for a little outdoor activity. You can go to Fulham Broadway, putney, Clapham junction , Earl’s Court, Wandsworth, Chelsea kings road all in under 15-20 mins. All of these places have awesome shops and food places. Transport is easily accessible and the people are friendly. For every religion there’s a place of worship near you. It’s hard to say one thing I dislike about the area cause it’s an area I absolutely love. I grew up in this area and hope to continue growing up here for many years to come God willingly.

Transport

Transport is amazing consider the area is near central, you can get to central in under 30 mins by train and bus, you’ve got loads of buses and even night buses to take you where part of London you want to go to. Stations are clean and spacious. Friendly people around the area who can give you directions if you are lost and unsure of what transport to take to your destination. Rush hour is rush hour , wish I could say it’s not the case but it does get busy at certain times and with school kids using the same transport as you it can get quite annoying having a bunch of teenagers next to you screaming and shouting so I would say choose your travel time carefully always try to avoid rush hour if you’re using public transport and if you’re driving then obviously avoid the rush hour, nothing worse Trojan sitting in traffic and a cold winters evening or even a summer day haha . King road can at times get really busy with heavy traffic. Public transport is very reliable except for the days when there’s engineering works are happening so always check before your travel. Other than that buses are superb and on time. And there’s always either a station or a bus stop near to where you live.

Community

There’s underground private parking where I live, isn’t too costly under £100 for a year. There’s also street parking from 5pm to 9am. Which is great if you do a 9-5 job you won’t get charged lol. It’s not noisy in the area but it does have a lively feel to it, it’s a very safe area, as its never quiet there’s always people around. Helps when you come home a bit late especially for the girls who came home from a night out. You don’t have any dark alleys just open streets with loads of light. There’s mostly families where I live and people who have busy jobs & renters.

Amenities

The range and quality of the local shops is amazing, there are a lot places you can go to do your daily shops like Tesco, Co-op or Sainsbury’s, all right next to you. We’ve got kings road with the most beautiful Christmas lights And also the flower show is spectacular. There’s an amazing gallery nearby called saatchi gallery, they always switch up the exhibition so it’s worth giving a visit often when you’re free and walking around the area. There’s also a lot of yummy food options such as the Ivy Chelsea Garden, bluebird Chelsea, my old Dutch( amazing pancake). You’ve got a post office nearby as we amazing fast food places such as McDonald’s, kfc , subway and in Earl’s Court which is like 10 mins away by bus has new places that’s opened, the halal guys (Popular in New York & Jollibee popular in the Philippines. For those who love going to a local homey feel pub there is loads around the area, with regular punters who make you feel like you’re at home.

The atmosphere is very quiet but there is also some crime which makes the area unpleasant.

Although there is a small park it is not very entertaining so I would say that it is not suitable for children or pets. The atmosphere is very quiet but there is also some crime which makes the area unpleasant.

Transport

There are cycle routes and a decent range of transports links such as busses and a train station not too far away. During rush hour it can be pretty busy and takes a while to get down the roads. Other than that there are no other problems.

Community

There are not pets allowed in the area that I live in although some people have then anyways. There are also not many children. Parking it’s not great and often have a walk from available parking to accommodation. Bin collection is also not great and is left to pile up quite a bit before it is cleaned.

Amenities

The quality of local shops are not too good and are often out of stock, but there are multiple restaurants that are always fully with friendly people.

relatively affluent and it’s certainly not a cheap place to buy or rent, but if you can afford it then it’s a great place to live
