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.

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.

The area is great and it works for me and my family.

The area is great and it works for me and my family. It is sad that many shops do not last - like I said this could be due to rent being far too high. The turnover of shops is very high. It has it's crime levels but then most of London does. There have been times when young teenagers were getting mugged on a weekly basis which was utterly horrific. Chiswick is a trendy area for families to live.

Transport

I am not next to a tube station but we have Gunnersbury, Chiswick Park and Turnham Green close by. Turnham Green only runs trains very early and late in the day which is a shame as it only caters for commuters. Buses are a plenty running North, South, East and West. There are no bicycle lanes in Chiswick but plenty of bike racks and even a Brompton fold up bike rental spot which is handy. Sadly a big pending issue is the possibility of the flight path from Heathrow coming over Chiswick in the future. It already affects us from a noise pollution angle but this is likely to increase which is very sad.

Community

The street is home to many families who I believe own their homes as we do. It is not the friendliest of streets and I think that is due to the busy traffic running along it. There is ample parking for residents and a long period of restriction which means I almost always get a space to park. The parking wardens in Chiswick are out come rain or shine so visitors cannot get away with parking in a resident bay for too long! Our street and Chiswick is generally a very clean area. Bins are collected weekly and very efficiently as the street does not look dirty afterwards.

Amenities

I live very close to Chiswick high road which is full of a variety of shops. You can pick up anything you want there: books, gifts, food, flowers, lighting etc. There are a number of large stores like WHSmith, M&S, Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Waterstones to name a few. Then there are smaller chain stores such as Gregs, Poungland, Robert Dyas for example. There are plenty of one of restaurants and cafes scattered around as well as larger chains. The high road is every changing perhaps due to overpriced rental. We are lucky to have several GP clinics, physiotherapy centres and Pilates studios too.

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.

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.
