I’ve always felt incredibly safe in my area too, and began taking the public bus home from school alone when I was 10 without any problems.

I like how accessible all parts of London are for me. When I’ve had friends from university visit, it’s been very easy to do a lot of fun activities. The area is suitable for children, maybe less so for pets because of a lack or gardens. I’ve always felt incredibly safe in my area too, and began taking the public bus home from school alone when I was 10 without any problems.

Transport

There are lots of cycle stations, bus stops and tube stations (Picadilly line, District Line, Circle Line), not to mention nearby train stations at West Brompton and Clapham Junction which are a bus ride away. The transport is often clean and I easily get night buses or the night tube home if I’m out late. The Fulham Road and Kings Road can get very busy during Chelsea Football matches, which can be bad however.

Community

I mostly live near families. Parking is usually good, and I rarely hear traffic noise from my room although on the other half of the house we don’t like to open windows up onto the Fulham Road. My street mostly contains owners, although renters have come and gone over time. Bin collection comes twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Amenities

Around my house, there is an excellent range of supermarkets and boutique food stores. Within an 8 minute walk from my house, I have a Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsburys and Marks and Spencers, which is very convenient should you ever need to buy something last minute. The restaurants and bars can often be expensive on the Kings Road and in South Kensington, but there is a great variety and my friends who live in other boroughs often come to visit me as I live close to many good options. Since I live between Battersea Park and Hyde Park, I never feel far from open space too. For my younger group of friends, Putney high street and central London are probably the most popular local areas we visit to go out, and these are both easily accessible. I honestly feel incredibly lucky to have grown up in my area, and there’s very easy access to pretty much anywhere nearby on public transport. There are no amenities my area is lacking.

The area being more high end is more expensive but the up side is it feels more safe. During the night, the streets are well lit and security is less of an issue. Pets would be a challenge as the streets are quite busy but by going to the right places nearby like Battersea Park, Holland Park, Hyde park, it is totally possible.

Transport

The buses are well connected and the tube stations are a 15 minute walk to either Gloucester road, South Kensington or Sloane Square. The buses are very regular however they do get stuck in traffic so sometimes it is faster to walk, especially during peak travel times. There is a great bus service to Piccadilly Circus which makes it very easy to get into central London

Community

A variety of people live on our street, personally I live in an apartment and some are owners and some are renters. There hasn't been any instances of anti social behaviour but sometimes the traffic noise can get quite loud, especially if someone has removed the muffler, which is surprisingly common.

Amenities

Living in SW3, everything is more on the pricey end, however by shopping wisely and going a bit further than Kings Road or South Kensington and going towards Earls court, things can be get cheaper. The shops towards Sloane Square are more high end and boutique and niche, as one would expect from that area. The streets are very nice and clean and the open spaces are very comfortable. The only down side is the traffic that is pretty bad. A wide range of supermarkets are also available, from Sainsbury's to Coop, all within an easy 5 minute walk. Transport is usually by bus and sometimes by tube. The buses are well connected and you can even take a bus to the nearest tube station if you are feeling lazy. The three museums in South Kensington are only 15 minutes away and you will find a few Imperial students in this area, due to the proximity to the world class university. Battersea park is a nice place to have a walk as well.

Not that convenient but still a nice area to live

I think that this particular has most things you need but the fact that you have to travel outwards a bit to reach these areas reduce the value of convenience.

Transport

For this specific area, I believe there is a lack of transportation. This is because it takes a while to get to the closest bus stop and as for the Underground station, the closest is South Kensington Station which is actually about 20 minutes away. Better off getting a bicycle if you can.

Community

It is a very clean area to live in, there are not many people who litter within the area. The only thing I would say this area is lacking is shops such as clothes and groceries.

Amenities

A church is very close to the within the local area, and there are a few restaurants. However, you have to travel outwards to get to the restaurants. The people around the area are like one big community, very warm and welcoming.
