I would say the area has a neutral - positive atmosphere

I like the wide variety of facilities and services that are available is the area. However it could benefit from some more open space. The atmosphere is quite mixed. A wide variety of people come and go everyday so it's difficult to pinpoint a certain type of atmosphere. People are dressed formally early in the day and casually as the day progresses. I would say it suits the environment very well. I wouldn't say the area is very suitable for children or pets. The busy roads pose a danger to dogs and cats and the constant flow of pedestrians could make walking dogs a difficult task. There is a lack of entertainment options for kids such as playgrounds, arcades or just general open space, so it isn't the best environment for them.

Transport

Being in London, a high amount of traffic throughout the day is to be expected however the roads in the area are wide enough to mitigate this problem to an acceptable degree, so the traffic isn't a significant issue in my opinion. There is a wide variety of public transport links in the area. Several bus routes cross this area making for convenient routes of travel with few transfers. The presence of Earl's Court Station enables quick and easy travel via tube. Kensingto is the closest overground station and isn't too difficult to get to either. The trains can be quite packed, especially during rush hour, but it is to be expected when taking into account the location of the stations. The bus routes and frequencies cleanliness are all up to standards (except of course the lack of bendy busses). The trains already come at fairly frequent rate, so I don't believe the crowding problem can be helped.

Community

As mentioned previously, there is a fair amount of traffic and noise pollution, but gived the area, it is not as significant as one may expect. There generally isn't much bad social behaviour as the area is quite busy and most people simply go about their day. The majority of people I encounter aren't from the area, but rather from other parts of London. A good proportion of them are tourists as there are several hotels in the area from which Hyde Park is a short distance away. Most people that live on my street are families that own the houses. In conclusion, I would say the area has a neutral - positive atmosphere. Other than noise there isn't much to complain about.

Amenities

There is a wide range of facilities in thr area surrounding my house. High quality restaurants are in abundance so there is a wide range of options when choosing to eat out. Shops on the other hand aren't as plentiful as the only big chain supermarkets are a sainsbury's local and a tesco superstore. I find that the Tesco superstore is the most popular due to its size and reliable quality, however this is also attributed to the lack of options to choose from. While these are nice to have and sufficient for everyday shopping trips, I feel the area could benefit from the addition of another supermarket chain, preferably ASDA or Lidl. Furthermore, I feel as though the area could benefit from some recreational facilities such as a theatre, or playground for kids.

It feels like a small town where everyone knows each other

Overall this is a great community to raise a child. It feels like a small town where everyone knows each other. There is a countable number of minorities in the area and everyone is up in everyone else's business. It is so safe that people can walk alone at all times and not have to be worried. Very active community.  However, the bid drawback are the tourists. They, too, are everywhere. I hate tourists,so it definitely gets to me. I try to hang around outside towards the evening, when most tourists and pop-up salesmen are gone, and it's emptier, quieter, and an overall much nicer area. At the end of the day though, these are very minor things in the scheme of it all. It's really a wonderful area, and I think I'd still live here if I could do it all over again - it's just so accessible and so full of life and rich with culture - it is very, very London, in the best way possible.  

Transport

I use the circle line to Farringdon and it is normally a pleasant journey and very fast. The rly rains are not noisy and they arrive every 1-6 mins. I get that the underground is efficient and nice (or at least way nicer than in many other countries) but it’s still not good enough to be that expensive. Each journey is £2.40 if you don’t have a daily pass or something like that, so avoid it if you can; the bus is cheaper and still nice.

Community

I live right very close to Hyde Park. It's huge and beautiful. I love the vibe and atmosphere of my street. I wish housing was more reasonable in size and pricing. My other complaint is that, not unlike many areas of large cities, it is often dirtier than I think it deserves because of the nightlife scene.  On the upside, my street has many bus stops and transportation is very easy which is a plus.

Amenities

It is very chill, relaxing, and convenient. It's also very safe. You can find restaurants, diners, supermarkets, and anything that you need basically here. But it's not that ideal for shopping or entertainment, of course, because of the high prices. There is a lot of turn over in terms of restaurants and shops due to rising rent levels but overall the stores are of high quality.

The high Street is in need of regeneration as it has suffered with Westfield opening up a couple of years ago.

I dislike the fact that there is no cinema. There are pets s and children. It is quite safe although there was a mugging. The high Street is in need of regeneration as it has suffered with Westfield opening up a couple of years ago.

Transport

The transport links are good. Several bus routes regularly stop by. There is a good tube service but the tube station does NOT have a lift or escalator. It can get very busy especially during rush hour.

Community

The people who live on my street are all owners and some are serviced apartments. A lot of families live on my street. There is a tiny , pocket handkerchief sized garden. It is a relatively quiet area very near to good transport links and local amenities.

Amenities

There is a park which is very popular called Holland Park. That has a playground. There is no cinema but the shops are quite good although a lot of them have shut down. We like any other area have been affected by COVID -19 so social distancing is in place. There are gyms but no high class restaurants just your average McDonalds.
