The atmosphere is very family-oriented and perhaps could be a bit more trendy - there are too many coffee shops
I love the community feel and the fact that there is a lot of do and buy and places to socialise locally. The atmosphere is very family-oriented and perhaps could be a bit more trendy - there are too many coffee shops that lack a unique vibe and far too many chains too. The area is very suitable for children and pets but the crime rate has increased in the last year, not helped by the closure of the local police station. Lots of bike thefts in the area.
There are good transport links to Turnham Green station - currently there is the district line and the Piccadilly (but only before 7am and after 10.30pm) and the 94 bus which provides good links to the West End. The tube can be a bit slow - sometimes waiting at Turnham Green for quite a while and on the high street itself, the traffic can be bad so it can take a while to go from Chiswick to Hammersmith for example, which is a relatively short distance. There is a good night bus service,
Mostly owners live on my street which is centrally located but also very quiet. There are mostly families or retired couples in houses and a couple of blocks of flats, mostly professionals or couples. There is ample parking available and recent changes mean that non-residents can park for a reasonable fee in certain areas. Bin collections are every week and alternate between recycling and rubbish so there can often be a lot of rubbish out on the street the night before, which can attract local foxes.
Local shops are plentiful and the quality is impressive, you can find greengrocers, delis, artisan coffee shops, butchers and ice cream shops. There are independent restaurants as well as chains and local pubs alongside more upmarket bars and the quality is good although better from the independent than the chains. There are decent-sized open spaces with playgrounds near the main high street and closer to the river you can find Chiswick House, which is great for a day out or for picnics and very popular with the locals. Dukes Meadows is popular too, particularly on Sundays as it hosts a farmer's market and has a cafe with child-friendly play areas. In terms of amenities missing, it would be nice to see a more diverse food offering - too many burger restaurants and Italians for example, would be good to feature some more cuisine such as Indian or Indonesian.
I have lived in Chiswick for 20 years and it feels a very safe area.
I would describe Chiswick generally as a very family-friendly place, with an affluent middle-class population. It doesn't feel like there's much crime, and what crime there is comes from elsewhere in London rather than being from home-grown gangs. I have lived in Chiswick for 20 years and it feels a very safe area. There is an strong sense of community. Because of the excellent primary schools in the area, many young families move to the area and they simply don't leave; often staying for decades. And I think that's because the area is actually a great place to live with a great sense of community, plenty of open space, an abundance of cafes and restaurants, easy access to the M4/Heathrow when you want to get out of London, and excellent accessibility to the West End or central London for work. It really is the best of all worlds.
Chiswick covers a large area. Parts of Chiswick are very well served by the tube but others, particularly to the south near the river, are a long walk from a tube station and you'd need to rely on buses. There is an overland station in Chiswick. Tube services are excellent, but everyone in Chiswick complains that the Piccadilly Line doesn't actually stop in Chiswick; it just whistles through without stopping, apart from very early in the morning and very late at night. So, for tubes, you're reliant on the District Line which is a bit old and clunky. There is the excellent 94 Bus service which travels directly west, leading to Notting Hill, Mayfair, Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus.
On my street we have off-street parking which is a blessing. Although the area is generally quite busy during the day with pedestrians and traffic, I would say it isn't noisy. And in the evenings and at night, it's peaceful. The proximity to Chiswick Back Common means there is open parkland literally on your doorstep. There are several other parks in very close proximity and the area is surprisingly green for a Zone 2 location. Demographics of the area are quite varied. There are a lot of young families and on a weekend with good weather you'll find Chiswick High Road awash with buggies and kids on scooters. There are also a lot of retirement homes in the immediate vicinity so a surprising number of old people too.
Chiswick hosts a vast and diverse array of restaurants and cafes. As a family, we eat out regularly and don't usually leave Chiswick as there are most types of cuisine available. Generally speaking, the quality of the food is excellent. It's also nice that there are a load of non-chain restaurants which means you don't have to go to the usual suspects. Every pub is a gastro pub and very family orientated. There seems to be an awful lot of Italian restaurants. There are strangely very few Indian restaurants and you have to head towards Hammersmith to get a decent Indian. But otherwise, the selection is huge.
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.
Very low quality restaurants and shops in acton high street

What I enjoy the most about Chiswick is the feeling of being like a in small town, where people know and help one another.
