Great transport connections both for bus & train, direct roads in/out of town, however traffic is abysmal!
When you've lived here long enough you can spot trouble/a new face a mile off. The building up of the area is enevitable, residents rarely oppose re-development and it's location makes it desirable. If you don't have a garden it's difficult to raise active children outdoors without conflict. Everyone has a cat/dog and the natural disharmony this brings between them causes endless cat wars and dog attacks however decent the owner is. Car crime, theft & burglaries still happen because of the disparity between social classes living ontop of and nextdoor to eachother... Everyone has CCTV now for a reason. If your sensitive to noise beware councils do nothing when you have a nightmare neighbour. 5G masts have been springing up and causing adverse health effects for once long term residents, resulting in higher turn over of tenants and house sales as people move out to escape literally being electrocuted in their homes at the top of the road.
Great transport connections both for bus & train, direct roads in/out of town, however traffic is abysmal! Street cleaning is often an issue as LBH fail to deliver, also tree pollen is a nightmare!
Mix of social and private tenants, plenty of crazy cat ladies! Mix of families, and miserable interfering oaps mostly. There is a high footfall of office workers passing through, and criminals using the boundaries as easy in/outs. Lots of car crime due to the above. At night you can hear the district line train running, and the regular siren blazing through the nearby junction that requires drivers to honk over anytime another hasn't paid attention to the lights/signs.
The high street has been dying for years, Chains -especially restaurants seem to be the only long lived, and provide underwhelming food for an eclectic community. Chris's fish & chips is a staple, as is Lara's & Franco Manca... Elsewhere I wouldn't bother. There are no trendy bars anymore -the neighbours moan too much about any such nightlife/noise and pubs are dying too, George IV is popular, and avoid the old packhorse unless you want to find a drug dealer. Be prepared to fight buggies & bikes for walking pavement space, the death march sets pace here. Chiswick house was once a peaceful haven now becomes swamped on sunnier days, and walking the dog is a perilous task everyone is at, and at risk of attack by other highly strung dogs. Overall lacking outdoor toilet amenities, once the restaurants/pubs close you'll have to pee in a bush/someones front garden -and everyone's fed up of this!
The lovely thing about Chiswick is that there's a charm about it
I wish it were a bit more diverse in terms of who lives there. You can tell that they only people who have lived there and see settled are of a particular background and race which is very unfortunate. There is also no diversity in terms of people who are employed at these shops. Big downside for me and I will personally not visit an establishment once it becomes apparent that they do not hire certain people based on their backgrounds, religion, etc. Unfortunate, that I can't always know this beforehand.
Bus stops are all along the high Street as well as underground stations. It's very easy to get from over area to another.
None. Very thankful in that aspect. There are many families and older people living in the area, and it's very quiet. It's very safe at all times of the day and night.
There are many shops in the area offering high quality products, especially along Turnham Green terrace where you can find a wonderful zero waste shop which us hard to come by, even in London! There is is also a grade A butchers and fishmonger as well as health and wellness store among many other specialty shops. The lovely thing about Chiswick is that there's a charm about it, one you can experience by tasting a gelato from Foubert's, one of many of the older businesses in the area. Chiswick is a wonderful place is you'd like to do some shopping: the Old Cinema sells amazing vintage pieces of furniture and luggage as well as jewellery. If nothing else, it's lovely to come in and browse. You could easily spend an hour or two here! The high Street has all the shops you might be looking for as well as many boutiques selling higher end clothing. We've got Book Case London which is one of the best book shops I've ever come across and the staff are just lovely. You could take a walk to Chiswick House and enjoy the view and the greenery there. It's beautiful and very popular in the spring and summer. What's missing from this area is one thing, a bit of youthfulness. Because of the lack of a movie theatre and music venues, etc.... It's lacking a vibrancy that only a bit of youthful presence can add.
I actually like everything about Chiswick it’s a beautiful place with a lot of beautiful people
I actually like everything about Chiswick it’s a beautiful place with a lot of beautiful people and they always happy and they give me a good vibe and it’s feels different to he honest I don’t have nothing bad to say about Chiswick. Chiswick it’s a beautiful place to go with kids and pets thereabouts lot of parks and places to spend the day with and for me it’s be a safe place to live .
I think the quality of the transports are very good, clean and respectful but the problem is that if you miss the first bus then you need to wait another half and hour for the take the nexts bus also the driver it’s always calm and very nice I remember I talked with them sometimes and they always happy. And if we talk to take the bus at night it’s takes ages and sometimes they never stop in the stop and I end up missing the buss and wait another hour but the punctuality it’s very good.
The good things about is that it’s always silince and my neighbors are very respectful and everyone knows everyone and I love the fact that if for example I’m jot at home and i packet cames to my house and I’m not here then they will give it to my neighbor so after he can give it to me. The bad things is that we need to make more stop for bus well actually that’s all I need to say Chiswick it’s a beautiful place to live to be honest.
I think the quality of local shops are so good the people are so nice and very kind always with a smile in their face also in the restaurant I remember I went to a good restaurant I forgot the name but was a very good restaurant the food was so nice and the people around they gave me a good vibe also the places are very clean and 100% higienic. The transports are very good, clean and respectful but the problem is that if you miss the first bus then u need to wait another half and hour for the take the nexts bus also the driver it’s always calm and very nice I remember I talked with them sometimes and they always happy.
