The area is generally safe for children and pets with road calming throughout and a park which is patrolled and locked at night.
The area is generally safe for children and pets with road calming throughout and a park which is patrolled and locked at night. The rise in house prices suggest that it is improving but this seems to mean more people move in and out of the area at relatively short notice. As a result we only know our immediate neighbors and feel the community has suffered as a result of so much movement.
Transport has been much improved by the introduction of 2 new buses linking Askew Road with Hammersmith. In addition both Shepherds Bush and Chiswick are well served by bused with the 94 offering easy access to the West End. The district line complements there services with stations at Ravenscout Park and Stamfood Brook proving as ready access as you will find in any London suburb. Anyone wishing to travel by bike will find a good selection of cycle lanes in the area, although personally I find the lane flowing against the traffic in King Street Hammersmith unsafe and will avoid the Broadway at all cost! With a little research detours through Brook Green or past the new Riverside Studios will solve the problem.r
I live opposite Wendell Park which offers a view of open space and an excellent out door amenity in which children can play and we can all exercise. There is an improving range of shops in Askew Road and readily accessible churches of most denominations. Probably the most unpleasant aspect is noise. There always seems to be nearby house undergoing major refurbishment or extension. whilst we are lucky to have good-sized gardens, some people could be most considerate of the noise they are making when having parties or babecues. Finally, as a gardener, I have difficulty with the neighbors' cats who seem to prefer the area around my freshly planted seedlings to their own more arid backyards.
For me living north of Stamford Brook station the distinguishing feature of the area is water. Stamford Brook is now mostly buried in pipes under the area, a point worth bearing in mind when having a house surveyed for purchase or major alterations. The Brook joins the Thames at the western end of Furnival Gardens in Hammersmith. Well worth a visit in the evening to see the sun set on the Chiswick reaches and enjoy a drink in one of the well-appoint pubs in the area. My favourite is the Dove. I would return home via Ravenscourt Park where, in winter months, the disadvantages of the high water table can be seen in the water logging of much of the grass area! However, the pond is always a treat with a remarkable variety of wildfowl for such a small area.
Chiswick is a very stylish and trendy place to live and we will never move from here.
Chiswick is a very stylish and trendy place to live and we will never move from here. It has everything you need for everyone, couple, families, children, pets etc. We most like the availability of everything, i.e. there is a vet, garden centre and more 5 mins walk away, it's all so easy.
There is a wide range of transport in Chiswick. There are at least 3 tube stops within the area plus the overground train which is very convenient. The tube and trains are very reliable and kept in good condition. There are a couple of different bikes you can hire and then dock anywhere, this can cause a problem sometimes as they are just left on the street but it doesn't seem to be too bad. There are a range of buses which are also well kept. They provide excellent access into the centre of London, for example the 94 bus goes straight from my house in Chiswick to Oxford Street. We are lucky to have such a range of transport in this area.
My street is very well located to walking to the High Road in Chiswick, just 6 minutes. There are a range of people who liver here, some who have been here for years and some younger families. They are mostly houses but there are some flats with renters. The parking is very good and there are always spaces, the nice wide roads also help. Traffic noise can be a little loud at times but it is generally fine, the bin collections are always on time. There are never any problems with anti social behaviour but I do feel at times the council could keep the streets a little better, i.e. picking up the leaves more quickly are looking after the trees and the weeds. The area is very pretty as there is a tradition to have matching white gates and fences in Bedford Park which looks very attractive.
Chiswick High Road has a fantastic range of shops and restaurants. There are both independent and chain shops and a good variety of food, coffee and home shops. There is also an outstanding garden centre next to Turnham Green Station and a lovely homewares shop on South Parade. There are no amenities which are missing, it has it all! Along the river is also a lovely place for pubs and restaurants and to enjoy the view. There is a very pretty street off the High road called Devonshire road which has a lot of independent shops and coffee shops you can go to. Chiswick House is also close and it is an amazing open space to enjoy for a walk or a picnic. There are also green spaces within Chiswick to walk or exercise your dog.
I love the privacy and quietness but dislike the lack of community spirit.
I love the privacy and quietness but dislike the lack of community spirit. The atmosphere is bubbly . It is suitable for all including OAP's who can access local cafes, parks, leisure centres, bars etc.
The area is very well served by local transport with good transport links. The bus service for some of the buses needs to be more reliable and regular particularly the E3 route. the The buses should be better scheduled so avoid 3 buses at the same time or within close proximity leaving customers to wait for very long for the next bus.
Parking is terrible on my street and the disable parking bays are creating an even bigger problem as the disable bays take up 2 parking bays space which is unnecessary. The bin collectors are very inconsiderate and not take the extra bag if placed along side the bin due to not having space in the bin. This has created a problem with the foxes which are now strolling down the streets as they are aware of where there next meal is coming from. It feels very restrictive in your home when you are have neighbours knocking your door and reporting you to the local authority for having small family gatherings or talking in your home during normal hours. We have a mixture of home owners, renters, couple and families residing on my street.
My local area have a wide variety of high end shops including boutiques and restaurants, friendly bars with live music and lovely well maintained parks for picnics. You are not limited to the type of cuisine and dining options. The area has a range of family freindly restaurants and leisure places. The high road is particularly popular with a bustily night life both weekdays and weekends. It is a great for socialising and meeting new people. The area could do more high street clothing shops and larger Waitrose and Savers shop.
It’s particularly family-friendly, with lots of kids clubs and activities around
