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.

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.

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.

West brompton - up and coming

Likes: west brompton cemetery. Perfect for a bit of reprive and walks. Great for taking children or pets. Pop up restaurants are great addition and some great cafes and really good coffee. Area is being developed with more up market housing. Dislikes: as mentioned, the large pub and bar establishments (the prince and atlas) mean navigating through sometimes noisy and drunken crowds to get home. Area is safe enough, not as busy as earls court by comparison and a bit quieter. However the west brompton station is very central.

Transport

West brompton station is handy for district line. Annoying part is that it’s literally one stop outside zone 1, but earls court is about 10 mins walk away that is very helpful for Piccadilly as well as district line. Old brompton road gets busy traffic, but not as bad as Cromwell road in parallel.

Community

Interesting mix of residents in the area. Lillie square development is a luxury square, however around it are a mix of more cheaper options. Feels like the area is undergoing a large redevelopment. Mostly comprised of renters living in the area, and mix of ages. West brompton station because is above ground provides more train noise that I can hear from inside my flat. Because there are some large pubs and bars - the Prince and the Atlas, normal days attracts quite a large party crowd on the streets.

Amenities

Old brompton road has a lot of the necessities: hardware store, express tescos, the prince, and a range of pop up restaurants. Old brompton cemetery is a nice park space for walks. Larger supermarkets and post office are approx 15 mins walk away, rather than within the direct vicinity. However you’re well placed and close enough to earls court high street and closer to Fulham.
