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.
It’s a beautiful area with gorgeous houses so lovely to walk around.
It’s residential enough that you don’t feel like you’re in zone 2 but close enough to transport to get you into central London within 15 minutes. It’s the perfect combination especially if you’re commuting into the city for your job every weekday. Westfield is the star attraction but just a bus ride away is beautiful Chiswick High Road with trendy shops, bars and restaurants. Can’t go wrong!
Being zone 2 in London you have buses going in every direction aswell as tube stations. Close by you have Stamford Brook (distinct line), Goldhawk Road (Hammersmith and City and Circle line) aswell as Shepherds Bush and White City (Central Line). It is particularly busy around rush hour (especially at Shepherd’s Bush) between 8-9 in the morning.
It’s a beautiful area with gorgeous houses so lovely to walk around. I get the impression that there is a mix of owners and renters in the area. You have the odd crime happen (where doesn’t that happen in London?!) but I don’t feel unsafe walking around the area. I never have a problem with bin collection. You have bins for your black rubbish and then Hammersmith and Fulham council provide you with recycling bags for your recycling. It’s an unspoken rule that you don’t put your recycling out until the night before collection. It keeps the area looking tidy.
There are some great local coffee shops - Lavelli Bakery being one on Askew Road. Great coffee and baked goods. A bus ride away you have Westfield which has an abundance of shops, restaurants and bars. Westfield is extremely popular as it has everything under one roof including a gym, cinema, Waitrose as well as high end and high street stores. Not far away you also have Chiswick High Road which again has great restaurants and bars but particularly independent special shops that Westfield doesn’t!
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
