“Very low quality restaurants and shops in acton high street”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Very low quality restaurants and shops in acton high street
The area ig improving. Still drug problems and drug dealers. I believe ot could become a trendy area due to its closeness to chiswick in xase the average quality of amenties improves and drugs problem related will be handle
The area is well linked by tube and bus. Many lines available and all well connected with central london and the airport of Heathrow. I do not cycle therefore I am not able to give any info about that.
Social behaviour problems, been reported many times but no intervention yet. Mostly owners in my area and young families. I don't drive so no udea about parking availability. No traffic noise
Very low quality restaurants and shops in acton high street. Some exceptions such as the pub called George & dragon and cafe such ass the Coffee house. No quality supwrmarkets such as waitrose, marks & Spencer, whole food or any other indipendent organic option.
I really recommend the area to live as everything is outside your doorstep.
