SW - London’s best place to live
Thus area is fantastic given than you get than you get a residential atmosphere of tranquility, close to all the amenities you want and also very close and accessible given the transportation to other central areas of London.
Transports are great in the area with bike stations in every corner, abundant buses and different underground lines, including the Picadillly which is also a night tube (on usual basis before Covid). The buses can be the most unreliable part of the transport in the area but I never had major problems. Rush hour can be harsh like everywhere else in London but I find the presence of the District very favorable given it is more spacious than other lines, but cam sometimes he a little slow.
My street is great, aesthetically pleasing and with a sense of neighborhood difficult to find in London. This is given by the presence of an amazing private park for the street which in summer is fabulous and very well taken care of. Even though we are close to a main road, I do not feel any car noise which is also quite unique in London. There’s a variety of residents, from families with kids to students to couples but all very respectful. I believe there is a mix of owners and renters.
The amenities in this area are excellent with a range of restaurants from cheaper to more luxury restaurants for any taste and different nationalities. Just the road in front of Earls court comprises of such a diverse range of amenities that give an amazing choice to the residents. Shops can be found mostly in Hugh Street Kensington and are quite absent anywhere else in the area. Food shops are quite abundant whereas open areas are not as common, except for Hyde Park. Bars are not the strong part of the area given it is such a residential zone but are still present.
t's a nice large yet reasonably quiet street
I love the mix of old school and new. It may not be the trendiest place in London, but it is overall the best. Great for pets and children, not overly populated, reasonably safe, beautiful houses, and within a 30 lion walk from both the river and Hyde park.
Walking distance to West Brompton, Earl's Court, and Fulham Broadway. A longer was will get you to South Ken, Gloucester Road, Knightsbridge, or Sloane Square. Very good for district and circle lines, as well as Picadilly. Great bus routes too.
It's a nice large yet reasonably quiet street, apart from all the delivery motorbikes. Quieter at night time than during the day. Mostly owners. mostly families, but also up and coming single people and young couples. Not many students, very little anti-social behaviour or crime. Bins and recycling collected twice a week...they leave a bit of a mess after though. Lots of dog-walkers.
We have a great Whole Foods (but not as large as the one on High Street Ken), and a decent mid-size Waitrose and Sainsbury's. We are missing a decent-sized M&S Foods and Tesco. Lots of lovely Delicatessen and independent bakery and grocery shops inc. Nature, Bailey & Sage, tree, etc. We have both an arthouse cinema and a large due cinema and many gym options and coffee shops. Lots of lovely Italian restaurants and bistros with outdoor space too. Within walking distance of many different tube stops for circle and district line, as well as Picadilly. Lots of nice walks, inc. Bromptom Cemetery.
I really would not recommend people with children move here
There is no community. Neighbours don't know each other. I'm specifically talking about council housing, I don't know if this is also the case for the gated communities in the area. It probably is. There are plenty of markets nearby. North End Road market, Shepherds Bush market. It's not a "trendy" area but that is unimportant. Desperate need of regeneration and upheaval. Unfortunately this will involve moving out people into the outskirts after their council houses are demolished. I really would not recommend people with children move here if they don't want their children to be in danger or harassed by large youth gangs in Marcus Garvey, Lytton Estate, West Kensington estate, Clem Attlee Court, and several others. I grew up here and it wasn't safe for children, and it's gotten much worse. There are plenty of people with pets here. It's not a very safe area, but not complete unsafe either. You 99% won't get attacked in the day, if you're in a public place, and probably won't be attacked at night but you never know. But there is a LOT of drug crime and widespread drug use, and occasionally violent (knife) crime as well.
A LOT of local transport. Rest assured, you'll find a relevant bus or train line. West Kensington, Kensington Olympia, Earl's Court, West Brompton, Barons Court, Hammersmith, High Street Kensington all have train stations. Plenty of buses too, and two bicycle stands nearby (Olympia st, West Kensington st)
I've heard parking is pretty bad. It's bad throughout a lot of London though. Bin collections are not as frequent as they should be. A large amount of anti-social behaviour and criminals in this area. Traffic noise is not high unless your window is facing North End Road. Even then, North End Road isn't a loud road.
There are some small and big shops locally. Salisbury's Olympia, Tesco Olympia, Tesco Earl's Court. A few pubs. No good restaurants. Good parks - excluding Marcus Garvey which is dangerous. Brook Green, Holland Park, Ravenscourt Park are all fairly close. No popular local areas in my area.
Very residential, good for families with children and pe
