The thing I most like about the area is the high number of shops and restaurants, which means I do not have to travel far to get the things I need.

The thing I most like about the area is the high number of shops and restaurants, which means I do not have to travel far to get the things I need. The thing I dislike most is there is quite a lot of noise and pollution from the high density of traffic. There are also quite a lot of abandoned buildings around which make the streets look messy and there is quite a lot of litter on the streets. Regeneration is required. Transport connections are good, but bike lanes could be improved. It is a great area for students and workers but less suitable for children as it gets quite busy and there are not many open spaces. There are places to walk dogs and go for runs along the river, which is very common for people to do.

Transport

There are many bus stops on my road which give access too central London and they are quite reliable, coming around every ten minutes. I also live a short walk from two tube stations. Cycle lanes in the area where I live could be better. Although they are present there are often vehicles stopped within them. Also at roundabouts, particularly the double roundabout on Lillie Road/North End Road, cars do not give cyclists space while turning which feels quite dangerous. It would also be useful if there were more places to lock bikes, and if these spaces had cameras, as bike theft is high in London. Santander bikes also are popular, with many pick up points around. During rush hour times North End Road and Fulham Palace Road get very busy, often coming to a standstill. The high number of cars creates high levels of pollution and is very noisy.

Community

There is widespread parking on my road, but it is expensive, so people tend to not use the available spaces until the evening, where it is free. The noise from traffic is quite loud but is quieter during the evening. There is, however, noise from building construction which is frequent. Bin collection is weekly for both bins. A couple of times bin days have been missed, which has made it very difficult as I live with six other students. Also on bin days the streets become filled with rubbish, which sometimes spills onto the pavement. The area has a very mixed demographic, with a high number of students and renters. I have not experienced any antisocial behavior.

Amenities

There are a very large number of local food shops within walking distance of where I live including two Tesco stores, two Co-ops a Waitrose, Sainsbury's and a Nisa Local. There are also food markets on North End Road, which is just down the road. Around Fulham there are restaurants of all types including Greek, Indian, Vegan, middle Eastern and Italian. There are also hardware stores, garden stores and kitchen stores all nearby. There are multiple open spaces around but they are quite limited in size. The river is a ten minute walk away which is where I go to get away from the city atmosphere. The river can get quite busy during hot days but there are always places to sit and chill by walking down the river slightly. The most popular area around is on North End Road as there are many shops and restaurants on it and also pubs, which get quite busy at night.

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.

I really would not recommend people with children move here

There is no community. Neighbours don't know each other. I'm specifically talking about council housing, I don't know if this is also the case for the gated communities in the area. It probably is. There are plenty of markets nearby. North End Road market, Shepherds Bush market. It's not a "trendy" area but that is unimportant. Desperate need of regeneration and upheaval. Unfortunately this will involve moving out people into the outskirts after their council houses are demolished. I really would not recommend people with children move here if they don't want their children to be in danger or harassed by large youth gangs in Marcus Garvey, Lytton Estate, West Kensington estate, Clem Attlee Court, and several others. I grew up here and it wasn't safe for children, and it's gotten much worse. There are plenty of people with pets here. It's not a very safe area, but not complete unsafe either. You 99% won't get attacked in the day, if you're in a public place, and probably won't be attacked at night but you never know. But there is a LOT of drug crime and widespread drug use, and occasionally violent (knife) crime as well.

Transport

A LOT of local transport. Rest assured, you'll find a relevant bus or train line. West Kensington, Kensington Olympia, Earl's Court, West Brompton, Barons Court, Hammersmith, High Street Kensington all have train stations. Plenty of buses too, and two bicycle stands nearby (Olympia st, West Kensington st)

Community

I've heard parking is pretty bad. It's bad throughout a lot of London though. Bin collections are not as frequent as they should be. A large amount of anti-social behaviour and criminals in this area. Traffic noise is not high unless your window is facing North End Road. Even then, North End Road isn't a loud road.

Amenities

There are some small and big shops locally. Salisbury's Olympia, Tesco Olympia, Tesco Earl's Court. A few pubs. No good restaurants. Good parks - excluding Marcus Garvey which is dangerous. Brook Green, Holland Park, Ravenscourt Park are all fairly close. No popular local areas in my area.
