My local area is a good combination of family spirit and festive spirit especially in Battersea Park
My local area is a good combination of family spirit and festive spirit especially in Battersea Park where I noticed that recently, its users were more between 20-30 year-old than in the past. That said, it stays very friendly. I appreciate the efficiency of the bus routes towards Picadilly or the Tate Modern. Sure, you can always make improvements and I would locate them in the green areas around the different estates. Battersea is very pet/child friendly! I feel safe and I am happy to raise my children within it.
I find the facility transport very useful as we can be in central London in 20 minutes on a night bus. Also, Clapham Junction Station is so handy. I would appreciate to have better options/quicker options regarding the transports to Shoreditch, Brick Lane, Canary Warf.
It’s true that in the past, a few anti-social behaviour could be noticed but I think there were big changes and improvements recently, at least in my area. Globally, I would say that my neighbourhood is friendly and also lively. Once or twice a year we maybe hear drunk locals being loud but that stays rare. I love being in a lively but safe area.
My local area is just perfect I think. We benefit from an amazing and immense park, local restaurants, coffee shops, a leisure center as well. The list is non exhaustive! The area is very well deserved by buses and it is easy to access to Center London too.

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 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.
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.
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.
Generally safe, plenty for children as so close to Battersea park.

Many bus routes serve the area. However depending on where you are in SW11 a bus is usually needed to travel to a tube stations (South Kensington, Slone Square or Victoria) and to the mai station Clapham Junction.
Parking is ok, can park but not necessarily where you would like and uses pay meters. Bin collection are great and street cleaning is good by the local council. Traffic is busy at rush hours. Many youths tend to hang on the main road which does not help the area but this is only main negative. Generally a nice community with a mixture of private and council housing.
Very close to Battersea Park which is a huge bonus in an otherwise built up area. Many residential housing mixing between private and council. Some good restaurants and cafes but would benefit from more or more variety in options. Good transport linked to other areas.
I love this area, for the gresn spaces around, the shops and the transport links.

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
