Good links into central london, many different shops, bars and restaurants available.
My area overall is a great area! There are a lot to do for families and children. Good links into central london, many different shops, bars and restaurants available.
There are a wide range of different forms of transport in my area. There are buses that go to all different areas and all different parts of London. There are taxis or cabs that are always available aswell for private travel if someone does not wish to go onto public transport especially at the moment with everything that is happening at the moment. Rental bikes and rental electric scooters are also available and easily accessible for any member of the public. There are two train stations that are quite near eachother both going to towards central London or further out of London if travelling in the opposite direction. More forms of transport run until Quite late at night and most buses run twenty four hours a day. Most public transport is kept well cleaned and is checked regularly, although some forms of transport can get quite busy and packed during rush hour times, they are quite regular services available.
As most people who live in London would probably agree the city is never really quiet, even at night. Most nights you can still hear trains or police or ambulance sirens going on through out the night. During the day although there is a big and popular local park and many different local forms of transports the streets are quite quiet and calm. The parking is Decent there are always streets that you can park for free at certain times and other areas you can pay to park your card during the day or over night too. The local residents will often get a parking permit sent to them in which they can park one car for free outside their property. Looking at most of the people I have spoken to I would say the most common would be people Who are renting, many home owners in my area are then renting out their property to others as it is such a great direct link to central London. I would say majority of people living around my area would be classed as families or couples, I don’t see a lot of students renting accommodation around here.
They are many different types of bars and restaurants in my area, with a wide range of choices. Big Bars with outside areas such as balconies, pubs with outdoor areas like pub gardens. Some are also child friendly and provide toys and activities for children to be able To keep children amused, some examples of this would be board games for inside or for outside there are play equipment like children’s play houses, giant connect four, giant Lego or Jenga pieces. There are also quite a few restaurants that have outdoor spaces too and nice gardens that you are able to sit and eat in.
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.
Some parts of Battersea feel up market and trendy- other parts feel in need of regeneration
Some parts of Battersea feel up market and trendy- other parts feel in need of regeneration (near large council estates eg. near Tesco Metro)
No underground nearby- I know Battersea Park station is due to open soon. Traffic on albert bridge during rush hour
Parking availability is better now that residents permit has been introduced- however it can get difficult to find parking at night. Lots of anti-social behaviour and traffic noise as large trucks go to nearby industrial site (at the end of Sheepcote lane)
Battersea Park is great. Lots to do there and kids like it. Clapham Junction station has great links. Not many halal restaurants in Battersea. Soft play indoor areas for kids not really available
The people here are great and diverse in culture and race.
