I love the ease of access to transport and how I have delicious restaurants on the foot of my door.

I love the ease of access to transport and how I have delicious restaurants on the foot of my door. I dislike the constant beray traffic. the atmosphere is friendly and trendy, I suppose the overarching theme would be upmarket however this isn't overbearing. I believe the area to be very safe, I would feel happy to bring children and pets here, no concerns.

Transport

Transport links are generally quite good, it helps to be so close to Paddington railway station also. There are a good number of cyclists on the road also. Roads are wide and generally feel safe when cycling. Buses are fairly reliable and there are a few local tube stations all within walking distance.

Community

Street parking is available through the local council at a price. this is not ideal but i suppose it is to be suspected. Traffic can get very busy on the main roads. Especially at peak times and the weekend, but alas this is London. Bin collection is fairly consistent however it is often a mess by the time it is collected. There are often groups of young men hanging around streets.

Amenities

Truly a fantastic location to live. Architecture is astounding, houses and buildings are absolutely beautiful. The is the ease of access to local amenities, a wide array of shops, both food, and retail. An absolutely mouth-watering selection of eateries and restaurants.

Somewhat safe for my kids to play as there are lots of small Parks and the community look out for each other

Transport

The transport system is very good we have 3 local train stations near by as well as a big main land station called Paddington station bus services are very good. Streets are clean however there are some roadworks on going which is a drag

Community

Good aspects are local community look out for each other plenary of shops schools are near by place or worship is close by along with hospitals Bad aspect would be a lot of foreign beggars have come recently and are begging on the streets which is not cool and also a lot of youth roaming around unnecessarily

Amenities

There is plenty of range and quality of shops in my local area from tourist shops to all kinds of restraunts local stores clothing and a nice market as well. There is also a nice big park called Hyde park where there is Lily’s of open space. There is also a ice skating arcade and bowing as well.

Amenities are quite good overall in my area

I wish council tax was cheaper overall and people would be more disciplined with dumping their bins in the streets on wrong days

Transport

I have Westbourne Park station closeby but I think London transports in general is pretty poor apart from the Central Line. Hammersmith and Central lines are just not reliable and too long to wait on quay

Community

Good aspect is the nice area overall but some streets around feel unsafe, partially with council state parts. Police cars seem to pop more frequently than I wished, smell of weed now and then as well. Also someone plays saxophone loudly every now and then even later

Amenities

Amenities are quite good overall in my area. I wish we had a Boots closer (closest one is all way up to Queensway) which is 20 mn by foot. I wish we had a nice mexican restaurant closeby too, I think London s missing good mexicans, not just my area.

it feels as though residents are overlooked in favour of the tourists because of the amount of money they bring into the area.
