Safe, friendly, local. Sense of community and great facilities.

Lovely area to bring up children. Safe, friendly, local. Sense of community and great facilities. Traffic can be busy (especially since Hammersmith Bridge shut) but overall a really great place to live.

Transport

Depends where you draw your Chiswick borders, but 3 or 4 tube stations (across 2 branches of district line, where up to Turnham Green you have the benefit of both Richmond and Ealing Broadway lines) plus one overland below the A4 in Grove Park (goes into Clapham Junction and central London Waterloo). Also a North London line link near Chiswick Park. Pretty well served, but is appreciably further out than Hammersmith (which has 3 different tube lines coming into it). Huge array of buses. Cycle superhighway is being extended through Chiswick at some point in next couple of years which will make the sizeable population of Mamils happy.

Community

Where you live in Chiswick determines the answer to this question. Part is in Hounslow Borough, part in Ealing. Services in both are generally pretty good. Weekly bin collections for Hounslow with garden waste an additional paid option. Slightly annoyingly main bin collection only fortnightly while recycling is weekly. Parking for residents with permits. Lots of (busy) paid parking bays. Big Sainsburys car park. Most people walk around but it's still Chelsea Tractor central since its a well off area. Profile-wise it's a mix of wealthy middle class families (the stereotypical West London profile) and longer term residents of all types. People do tend to stay in Chiswick for long periods of time since it's a lovely place to bring up a family and the houses can be expensive but spacious. Good sense of community rooted around the good schools (primary private and state) means families get to know one another. Lots of community groups and shared activities (including annual community organised fair)

Amenities

Chiswick is pretty well served with shopping amenities. For example in food you have a big Sainsburys, smaller Tesco and Waitrose, plus a great array of independents (2 butchers, 1 fishmonger, lots of delis). Clothing, hardware & DIY all well catered for. Big Waterstones. What there is a huge amount of though is cafes, restaurants and coffee shops. All ranging from amazing (Michelin starred LaTrompette) to chain to quirky. Never eat anything you don't want to! Basically you don't need to leave too often if you don't want to (and many don't unless it's to go further outside London) but shopping wise Westfield is 10 mins drive or 20 mins bus away. Open spaces are pretty plentiful - River walks, Chiswick House and Gardens, Gunnersbury Park and lots of sports facilities (golf centre, swimming pools, rugby, football, multisports centres, gyms, tennis). Chiswick is made up of little communities (Grove Park, South of the A4 with bigger houses / gardens and on overland train but less easy tube access; Bedford Park, quite big expensive houses centrally located; Glebe Estate, small cottagey houses and strong community).

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

The area is very suitable for families with little kids and pets. Chiswick has many parks (the most beautiful one is Chiswick House and Gardens) where people can hang out and spend time with their little ones. It is a pretty safe area and a quiet place to live. We have a few market stalls along Chiswick High Road, there also is a main food market on Dukes Meadows. What I enjoy the most about Chiswick is the feeling of being like a in small town, where people know and help one another. Along the main road, we have many shops (coffee shops, pubs, restaurants, take away places, etc.) that make Chiswick a nice place to hang out with friends and family members. The big "Sainsburys" supermarket, close to Chiswick Park tube station, provides everything we need for our weekly grocery shopping. In my opinion, we are missing a big "Tesco" supermarket and the famous "Superdrugs" store. Also, the area with vacant shops (such as, ex "Valentina", ex "Blockbuster", etc.) in front of the lovely Turnham Green Church park must be renovated and possibly filled with new shops.

Transport

Very good transport service all around the area. I live in proximity of the 94 bus main stop, The 94 bus also offers a night service, which is great for me as I get this bus to go to work, pretty early in the morning (about 5:00am) and I find the service is very reliable. Very few times I have had problems with it (one of those times, the bus just broke down, so it was no-one's fault). At that time of the day, it runs every 15 minutes (normally, every 7 minutes). Buses are generally clean, they have been changed into new and more technological buses a while ago, now we can also charge our mobile phone while we are on the bus, as there are USB plugs in the lower deck. At about 3 minutes walk, I can find the Chiswick Park tube station, served by District Line. In terms of cleanliness, space and air/con or heating, the District Line is one of the best tube lines in London, in my opinion. I get the District Line when I go out with friends, to get to places quickly. It is not a night service, but Piccadilly Line is, and it stops at Turnham Green - which is still a few minutes walk through the park, to my place. I am extremely pleased with the transport service provided.

Community

I live in front of the Acton Green park, on Acton Lane. I find the area pretty safe, I've walked through the park in the night, going back home, and nothing has happened to me. The park is always super clean, the grass is cut regularly and bins are never full. I love to spend time in the park. Chiswick is a peaceful place, many families live along the park. I live in a flat share, with people from different nationalities, and I am a renter. We all are professional. The area I live in has not too many traffic noises, just a bit in the morning, when people go to work by car. I've heard of many robbery attempts in Chiswick High Road, in proximity of Marks & Spencer store, so I would definitely intensify the police control over that area. Bad side: as I live in a flat and we have no space for recycling bins, we have to leave our recycling rubbish outside, just in front of the main door (it is collected every Monday morning - even on Bank Holidays - and the service is excellent), this makes the access to our building very unpleasant and it also attracts foxes and mice.

Amenities

Wide range of coffee shops along Chiswick High Road, many great pubs and a few restaurants. The most popular area in Chiswick High Road is close to the famous pizza place "Franco Manca", there is a nice space where it is possible to hang out and have a delicious ice cream at "Oddono's". The missing amenities, in my opinion, are beauty places and more pharmacies. I would love to have a specific store in Chiswick High Road (possibly next to "Boots") and that would be "Superdrugs". What I would definitely change or improve in the main street would be the area in front of Turnham Green Church, where many vacant stores ruin the beauty of the park nearby.

Nice Chiswick

I love how safe it is, and there are lots to do in the area and surrounding areas. Kew Gardens is not far, either is the deer park.

Transport

Transport is good, parking is not overcrowded, a few stations and loads of buses that go further west, I haven’t seen a bus that goes east London though

Community

Good- very trendy, full of families, lots of places to go and parks to relax in where the kids can also play Bad- not much negatives about the area to be honest

Amenities

Amenities are great, plenty of place to go. Shops, restaurant, parks, coffee shops, pubs, gyms, everyone seems friendly
