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.

The area being more high end is more expensive but the up side is it feels more safe. During the night, the streets are well lit and security is less of an issue. Pets would be a challenge as the streets are quite busy but by going to the right places nearby like Battersea Park, Holland Park, Hyde park, it is totally possible.
The buses are well connected and the tube stations are a 15 minute walk to either Gloucester road, South Kensington or Sloane Square. The buses are very regular however they do get stuck in traffic so sometimes it is faster to walk, especially during peak travel times. There is a great bus service to Piccadilly Circus which makes it very easy to get into central London
A variety of people live on our street, personally I live in an apartment and some are owners and some are renters. There hasn't been any instances of anti social behaviour but sometimes the traffic noise can get quite loud, especially if someone has removed the muffler, which is surprisingly common.
Living in SW3, everything is more on the pricey end, however by shopping wisely and going a bit further than Kings Road or South Kensington and going towards Earls court, things can be get cheaper. The shops towards Sloane Square are more high end and boutique and niche, as one would expect from that area. The streets are very nice and clean and the open spaces are very comfortable. The only down side is the traffic that is pretty bad. A wide range of supermarkets are also available, from Sainsbury's to Coop, all within an easy 5 minute walk. Transport is usually by bus and sometimes by tube. The buses are well connected and you can even take a bus to the nearest tube station if you are feeling lazy. The three museums in South Kensington are only 15 minutes away and you will find a few Imperial students in this area, due to the proximity to the world class university. Battersea park is a nice place to have a walk as well.
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.
Great transport links to central London and around the UK 10 min to Clapham junction station but no tube station.

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
