One of the best London's local town with plenty to discover but with a big downside.

I absolutely love how easy it is to get pretty much anywhere in London in a reasonably good time, and that you have absolutely everything you nees within walking distance. As mentioned my local area doesn't feel too safe, which is the reason why knowing what I know now, I wouldn't move here to start a family. It's definetely an area to invest on... We purchesed a flat in 2018 and in 2021 the price went up by 40k. Altgough we were not expecting that, we made quite a profit on the sale of it! Plenty of good school, with the local school being "outstanding". Also you can easily access the canal which is a plus if you like cycling/walking/running.

Transport

Great transport links: with the Bakerloo line a short walk away, you can be sure to be able to get everywhere in London in a reasonable time. Buses are available and routes, as well as night routes, are very efficient: you can get to Oxford circus, Paddington, Notthing Hill gate, Victoria and Camden only by popping on a bus. Kilburn high road station i also walking distance, and that's an overground station. Cycling wise you can get to victoria in 30mins, oxford circus in 35mins and camden in 30mins. This is to say that should you wish to there are different options!

Community

Parking is, unfortunately, very difficult to find unless you are a resident. Bin collections happen very regularly. Plenty of families living around here, although there are a few council estates around.

Amenities

With Kilburn hign road a short walk away, you have absolutely everything at hand: excellent choice of both chains as well as family run restaurants for all taste and budgets; excellent selection of pubs and a few bars here and there. You will find most banks on there too, as well as the main well known shops and supermarket, ranging from Aldi to M&S, from Primark to TK-Max, from coffee shops such as Costa to pizza places such as Franco manca, arguably one of the best pizza restaurant in London... You have everything your heart desires in Kilburn! Also most of NW6 is a stone throw away from Paddington Recreational Ground, which is the local park where you will find everything you would expect from a park: running track, huge children playground, a cafe, tennis and football courts, a gym...even a roses garden and a dogs training area! What's there not to like? Plenty of local shops too, such as DIY, pharmacies and corner shops... Everything you need, everywhere you live!

Nice area by the canal

I love it here, there are some not so nice people that don't live here that hang around but i guess that happens everywhere. The canal is beautiful, its really easy to go anywhere from here and after two years living here I wouldn't even consider moving to another area. Little venice is lovely

Transport

Its clean and transport is excellent. At least three different bus stops and two tube stations. Its clean around here but if you walk towards sutherland av. you might find a completely different place. Its fine because there are lots of shops there and its not too close to the residential area. There’s not a lot of traffic around here

Community

I dont know a lot about my neighbours but i think its mixed, I’d say its more families than students. Bin collection is regular and we’ve never had any issues with that. Our street is cleaned daily and even if there’s a school very close the noise is acceptable and only happens twice a day in school days Neighbours are usually quiet and friendly

Amenities

Lovely residential area by the canal, its close to several corner shops and excellent public transport. Usually quiet but we have a couple little coffee shops restaurants and bars. One of my favourites is right in front of the canal. Truly a lovely area to live

here's some antisocial behaviour in some parts of the W9 area, for example around Paddington Recreational ground

The area is quiet but there's not a lot of things to do around the area and overall feels a better area for families than young professionals. People around the area have a lot of pets and I'd recommend the area for families with children and pets.

Transport

Maida Vale and Warwick avenue stations both serve bakerloo line with easy access to Paddington or Oxford Circus and rarely gets crowded. There's a lot of busses available going to major stations across the London and are overall very reliable. The area has multiple stations with Boris bikes.

Community

The area has a lot of families with young children. There's some antisocial behaviour in some parts of the W9 area, for example around Paddington Recreational ground. T

Amenities

There's a small number of shops, restaurants and bars in the area, and larger supermarkets within commutable distance. Elgin and Gail's near the Maida Vale tube station are very popular, and offer a good selection of coffee & brunch items. Elgin is a relatively trendy pub.

I always feel safe walking around this area and to me I always feel calm when coming home after working in the city.
