I am very happy to live in such a great place, and it is very affordable

It has a very safe feeling but because people are very friendly and most of them are minding their own business. You would come to celebrate a birthday party, or a night out with the girls or with the boys, it is suitable for children and pets. Most people adore pets and they are very approachable to them. I am very happy to live in such a great place, and it is very affordable.

Transport

This has very good transport links being very central busses are running all day long and some night time, you won't be missing a bus as they coming every 5 minutes or so. Overground has good connections to the other lines that goes from central to other areas in London. It is a very clean area, with regular bin men doing their job properly also some are friendly too. The noise would be the only issue here but considering how busy it gets no one really notice it once they get to live in this area. Highly recommend!

Community

It has few parking spaces but the Mayor of London is working in building some more spaces which is great for the neighbourhood. The traffic it's constant from morning to noon but night time can get quiet and peaceful. It is cheap to rent in this area than to own a house but that is because people have been considering to find a new building to live in rather than a more older house. There is foreign students who rent, elderly couples and some young families. It is a great community we all support each other, highly recommend whoever consider moving in this area won't have any regret in the future!

Amenities

We have a beautiful area here , with lots of amenities from local shops to restaurants, and everything you might think off. It has also a University within walking distance from the tube station. The very famous called MEATliquor it is a restaurant where you can chose to dine-in or takeaway who has a very nice retro atmosphere. amazing friendly personal with a great hardworking manager which I personally know. There is not much missing in this area apart from a Gym but that is not far from where we live either.

construction sites, lack of parking and a high number of tourists can be some negatives.

I love my area, it is one of the most high-end places to live in London. Very suitable for children and pets with Hyde Park right around the corner. The number of people on the streets is one of the things that I dislike the most.

Transport

W1 is a very central area and has lots of tube stations all around, as well as lots of buses and cycle routes. So getting around London from here is no problem at all. Anywhere in London is maximum 40 mins - 50 mins away. London Underground is very reliable and I use it to get to work all the time. However, the tube does get very busy during rush hour and I wouldn't say the air is the cleanest.

Community

The street I live on is very clean and has a classic British look. The buildings around are very beautiful. However, construction sites, lack of parking and a high number of tourists can be some negatives. There is a mix of renters and owners on my street who I know.

Amenities

Mayfair has lots of high-quality shops and restaurants all around it due to its central and touristic nature. Londons most famous open spaces such as Hyde Park is right around the corner and is a great park to go to for all events all year round.

the area is incredibly old and needs investment, but not in the form of corporate offices!

I like the fact that it essentially never sleeps, with restaurants and cafes opening till late and people walking on the streets till 2 am! I would say its a pretty safe area, with rare occasions of violence and crime. However, the area is incredibly old and needs investment, but not in the form of corporate offices!

Transport

Transport links are pretty good, there are many buses running on a regular basis and 2 train stations within Edgware road alone. However, this does mean that traffic is very bad most of the time. Parking is an absolute rip off, and most of the area falls within the congestion charge zone anyway, so its never really worth taking your car. Rush hour is a nightmare and is incredibly busy, the constant road works also don't help.

Community

Parking availability isn't too bad, however as I mentioned before its very expensive and spots are difficult to find. The area is always busy and loud with noises of cars and horns honking.

Amenities

The area used to be very popular, there were so many tourists that would come to visit every year. This led to the many restaurants, cinemas, cafes and supermarkets benefiting significantly. However, now its just corporate all over, so many of these popular places are closing down and they're opening offices and flats in place of them. Edgware road used to benefit so many people and was loved by millions, now its slowly being destroyed. If you take a look at Edgware road now it looks depressing, dirty, quiet and boring.
