“There are hoards of rats that have not been addressed.”
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.
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!
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!
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.
So many little gems to discover
The residential area around Regent’s Park practice does need a little regeneration similar to the one kings cross is going through. The disparity in homes can be seen along Albany street where the ones closer to Regent’s Park are huge and clearly expensive while the ones opposite to road is less trendy and more practical.
Night buses is this area are plenty and regular as this area is close to Oxford street. Although sometimes it can feel a little unsafe around Warren Street station because of rough sleepers and people who will try to approach you
As NW1 is near UCL, the area has a larger population of students. However, I have seen a large number of families as well. My building is right next to the road so sometimes the traffic noise and ambulance/police can be heard. But this can be solved with proper noise cancelling windows or walls
I live in the area of NW1 that is a 5 minutes walk away from regents park and 15-20 mins walk north to Camden high street. Camden high street has two undergrounds (Mornington crescent and Camden Town) but about 10 minutes walk from each other. The high street also has 3-5 charity shops, a butcher, bars, poundland and a Lidl and Aldi opposite of each other! There is also a thai supermarket, korean mart and a general asian grocer (although a little more expensive than chinatown). Then if you walk southwards, you have Tottenham Court Road which now has the largest Lidl in central london, 3 more underground’s nearby, primark and a road that leads you directly into soho/oxford street/regents street area! It is so convenient. Even if you do not wish to walk, there are direct buses and 24 hr buses. I do wish there was a b&m closer though! Both soho and Camden high street area can be very crowded and lively in times of no covid which made the area fun to live in as it felt so alive.
There are hoards of rats that have not been addressed.
There are schools right in the middle however do not believe the area is suitable enough for kids. There are hoards of rats that have not been addressed.
Tube and bus are very easily available and cycling is easy. however new cycle lanes have caused road to be packed and traffic is incredibly slow.
There is no parking available, which should be changed immediately. Bin collection is fine but there are many instances of anti social behaviour
Great restaurants, bars and supermarkets aren't a far trip. However there are very little open spaces for kids or parks with sport facilities which should be changed.
The atmosphere is vibrant and lively.

The best thing about my area is that it is in close proximity to all essential and non-essential amenities.
