There's so much nearby so there's always somewhere to go which is really freeing.

I really like the amount of amenities in the local area. There's so much nearby so there's always somewhere to go which is really freeing. The area on the whole is quite upmarket, being on the edge of Chelsea - the roads are lined with white terraced houses and flats that are quite attractive. This gives the area a safe feel on the whole, so definitely safe for children and there are parks / green spaces that are suitable for children to play and dogs to play too.

Transport

Transport links on the whole are good. There are plenty of bus stops nearby - you're never really more than 5 minute's walk away from one. The tube could be better, since the nearest tube stations are 10-15 minutes away, although as a consolation Earl's Court is on the Piccadilly Line so has direct links to the centre of London, but it does get busy during rush hour to the point that the platforms can become cramped (pre-covid).

Community

The area is nice to live in. It is a combination of students, renters and house owners, but all are aware and tolerant of each other so the combination does not lead to any issues on the whole and there is not any antisocial behaviour. There is parking available but a lot of it is residents only and needs a permit, so guests finding parking both is difficult and expensive. The area is also near a couple of main roads so there can be some traffic noise and also noise from Heathrow Airport (aeroplanes).

Amenities

There is a very large range of local shops and amenities in the area. From numerous amounts of Tesco and Sainsburys supermarkets to DIY and home furnishing stores, there is a store for pretty much anything you might need nearby. There are a lot of restaurants and bars nearby too, with the Wetherspoons and surrounding pubs in Fulham, and more upmarket bars such as Kona Kai and those along the road towards Sloane Square. Fulham is probably the most popular area nearby, especially for students who go to the bars, since there is so much in terms of food, drink and other general amenities. The large Tesco on Cromwell road is also popular since it has such a large range of food and at cheap (ish) prices. Nothing is really missing, perhaps some cheaper furniture shops but that can be ordered online.

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.

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.

It is a very fun and there are lots of pubs

There aren’t many playgrounds and it’s a bit sketchy

Transport

There are lots of buses like the 37 however this can get cramped at times. Rush hour is a pain and there aren’t enough night buses

Community

Some students here and there, a lot of couples and a large number of families. There are also some company holders and a few investors in the area

Amenities

It is a very fun and there are lots of pubs for me to drink at with my mates. There are some good restaurants, as well as a classic Maccy Ds and that

The area is generally feeling safe, at least compared to other central-ish locations in London.
