I just like the sense of community in the area like as long as you’re an outgoing person it’s not uncommon to walk down the street and say hello
I just like the sense of community in the area like as long as you’re an outgoing person it’s not uncommon to walk down the street and say hello to the shopkeepers or meet neighbours down the road and have a smile. A lot of people know each other in the area and it’s just welcoming.
Buses run through the main street and there is a train station nearby so it’s very easy to get around and get to where you need to go. There are many routes you can take from the main street and many bus options in the area. And as a plus a lot of the buses are night buses as well, so getting back into the area at night is never an issue. Sometime there is roadworks going on so there may be certain parts of the roads are closed off and this can impact where you can get the next bus from. But this is rare and it doesn’t impact that much because you normally just have to walk to the next bus stop it’s never the whole road.
We have a mixture of owners on the street but there are some buildings that have renters with families and couples. My street in particular is very friendly I know all my neighbours and I’ve never had problems with the owners. There is a peaceful Street sometimes we do get some people who are travelling through instead of going onto the main road that bring about anti social behaviour, but is rare. It may be a negative for someone who likes a quiet neighbourhood. But yearly the Notting Hill carnival will affect someone who is living in this area. Because it’s close to the main stage a lot of people be walking through the streets, there will be littering and noise pollution because of how close we are to the carnival, so for two days every single year that is something that you need to be conscious of. But I counterpoint to that is that the government is aware of these neighbouring streets around carnival and often we have police officers standing at the ends and beginning of our street with the horses so we don’t have a lot of problems like we used to.But I counterpoint to that is that the government is aware of these neighbouring streets around carnival and often we have police officers standing at the ends and beginning of our street with the horses so we don’t have a lot of problems like we used to Bin collection is twice a week and parking is always good on our road!
We have 3 main stores in the area, an Iceland, Sainsbury's and Co-op surrounded by small businesses. Our street is very friendly! We have a local pub, church and hair shop and options of restaurants. When living in the area, you get a true sense of togetherness.
If you Love London you see in movies, this is the place to live!
I would like to see more open spaces for kids especially with regards to playground upgrades. Either there aren't any or if there's then it's baby size. My 4 year old always gets bored no matter where we go. There is desperate need of good soft play options for kids too
I m a mum with two kids under 2 who don't drive but luckily the bus network in he neighborhood never meant I have to think about not having car. The bus network is always reliable, on time and clean.. it's been bit wait at times due to pandamic bus limit but drivers in the area are always accommodating.. while I went to work I never had to worry about missing my bus and being late as the frequency of buses here meant I could catch another in couple of minutes... tube stations in the area mostly don't jane lifts that's only drawback but helpful people always give a hand.
My flat is on Main Street so it's usually noisy during the day, but it gets quiet by night so can't complain.. but collection is usually on time but unfortunately have noticed people in my area are not very keen on recycling and council didn't seem to penalize so people got more casual which breaks my heart. Most people I know is are working people renting properties. Or they are older couples who own the properties since ages.
If you are a fan of London and prefer to have a quality life where you feel proud of what you have achieved in life by simply standing at your window or having the liberty of having great local stalls where people share not only their produce or services but share their life experiences too. Living in w10 will give you the essence of being a Londoner every time u step out. Shops, pubs. Stalls and even canal by the reach. Great open spaces and gyms. What's not to like, come and explore
The atmosphere is not terribly pleasant and I would say that this is one of the poorer areas in London.
The atmosphere is not terribly pleasant and I would say that this is one of the poorer areas in London. However, it is almost central & is not terribly far from oxford street & Regent’s Park. I would not say that the area is suitable for children as it is not very safe.
There are many public transport options and a tube station (Queen’s Park) very close & easy to use. The cleanliness of these public transport options are average however they are normally on time & working.
Anti social behaviour is incredibly common in this area unfortunately. Traffic noise is not very common & the area is quiet in general unless groups of teenagers are present. There are regular & good bun collections but rarely recycling.
There are a range of local shops in w10 however many of these shops aren’t very aesthetically pleasing or clean & organised. There are also a few restaurants however these too are below average. There are a few open spaces in the area such as a park and an outdoor children’s playground.
I love the big shopping market

Very good location for couples or families, not easy to park sometimes as streets are quite full.
