“I love the privacy and quietness but dislike the lack of community spirit.”
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.
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.
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.
