“a quiet road in general and some friendly neighbours”
not the coolest area, but is a good and safe place where to live in and not being far from central London.
I would say that is not the coolest area, but is a good and safe place where to live in and not being far from central London. Also, the prices of the houses in the area are increasing which is a good signal. Also, I believe is appropriate for families (there are schools nearby) and for pets (you would love to have a walk with it in Ravenscourt Park). The most I like in the area is to buy Fish and Chips in a famous establishment there and enjoy the park. Oppositely, I dislike the fact that there is little chance to meet new people there (lack of pubs, bars), and you cannot find a cinema and clothes shops.
You have nearby Ravenscourt Park Underground station (District Line), Hammersmith Station (Picadilly, district line, great connectivity with buses to Victoria Station, Richmond, etc.) and East Acton Station (central line). Also, you have the possibility to take many buses that connect you to important areas (Hammersmith, Shepherd's Bush and Chiswick) 24/7. Moreover, you have a Santander docking station in Hammersmith, but many companies like Lime, Uber or Mobike provide their services of bicycle renting in the area as well. However, there is a lack of spaces to park your car in the area.
In overall, it is a good area where most of the people living there are workers, students couples, and fewer families. There is a bit of traffic noise (Askew road is a high street) and lack of parking availability but instead, it is all clean and there are no criminality issues. I would say that based on the fact that many people living there seems coming from southern or east European countries, probably most are renters like myself.
Askew Road is a great area with many supermarkets (Nisa, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Co-op,..), restaurants, coffee shops (Costa coffee, lovely independent cafes), butcher, ... Also, it is near Ravenscourt Park (massive green open space) where you can go for a run, play tennis and relax. Moreover, there is a library (with Amazon locker inside), post office and medical centre in the area. The only thing missing is proper pubs or clubs nearby where to have a beer, enjoy the music and have fun with your friends. But the area is close to Hammersmith where you can find all the amenities you might miss in the area.
The area is fantastic for families with the park being so close as well as several excellent schools.
The area is fantastic for families with the park being so close as well as several excellent schools. It is safe with usual precautions for inner London particularly for teen girls - teen and pre teen boys do get mugged for their phones/ cash. I would say the atmosphere is bustling particularly in and around Askew Road - there are so many choices of restaurants and good pubs. We all enjoy having Westfield within walking distance and it is a gathering point for teens which is indoors in winter and safe. Teens also appreciate the transport links which make it easy for them to travel around and see their friends. We have cats and they are very happy exploring the gardens and there are many dog owners.
Very well located for transport links with buses to Hammersmith and Chiswick and buses into central London. The district line tube is a little bit of a walk either to Ravenscourt Park or Stamford Brook. There are regular tubes into central London with the central line at Shepherds Bush which also runs late at night. Traffic can be an issue with routes around Shepherds Bush Green; across the A4 to Richmond and out of London on the M4 often very heavy with jams and tailbacks. The current closure of Hammersmith Bridge does not help if you need to drive across the river ! Cycle routes are in the process of being improved and are a great way to get around locally. It’s a lovely cycle through the park to get to Hammersmith from Askew Road. In peak traffic however it can be quite challenging and I am reluctant to let my teens cycle in rush hour due to heavy traffic volumes and road rage.
Parking availability is excellent and it is always possible to find a spot on the road. Some newer residents are territorial however and like to park exactly outside where they live. They get very cross if anyone else parks there. Mostly on our street there are families as home owners and then also renters. There are several families who have lived here for many years and who are very friendly. Bin collections are on Wednesday morning and traffic noise is minimal as it is a fairly quiet side road. Noise comes from the house renovations - increasingly common for the purchaser to get the entire house and then spend 12 months refitting. Our neighbours did this and the house opposite has had the builders in for 12 months now.
Lovely independent shops on the Askew Road such as Detour cafe for delicious weekend brunch and weekday lunches.; Adams cafe for amazing tagines and cous cous and Monkey Temple for Nepalese MoMo dumplings and curry. Great butchers (GingerPig) and bakery for fresh bread and pastries ( Laveli). Plenty of choice of supermarkets to top up on milk etc. Very close to Ravenscourt Park where our children loved to play after school and at weekends - it has a paddling pool and sand pit for small children and newly refurbished tennis courts. Theatres at Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush are within easy reach. Probably only missing a bar to go with our great pubs such as The Eagle and the Princess Victoria.
a quiet road in general and some friendly neighbours
As mentioned, the area is regularly visited by police and feels at times to be attracting disreputable characters. I felt safer and happier in Barnes.
It is difficult to comment on this because of the lockdown rules preventing much movement but generally it's OK. It's stuck in a bit of a public transport black spot with only bus transfers to Hammersmith to use the tube. But these are fairly regular.
Good - a quiet road in general and some friendly neighbours. Easy and convenient to access grocery stores, nearby to the major parks, good transport links. Bad - a sense that the area is dangerous and rife with crime. Regularly see drug dealers doing deals on my road, a murder happened in the area recently, a stabbing shortly after. A sense that Askew Road needs regeneration and purpose rather than a cut-through. Road traffic is often heavy.
There is a relatively broad range of shops, bars and accessible open spaces. With close access to Richmond Park, the Thames Walk and various other open spaces, it feels as though nature isn't far away. The shops in the area seem to be heavily weighted towards big brand grocery stores and the odd cafe or hardware store - nothing really stands out.
Quiet and nice to live.
