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!

London’s hidden gem.

I think the life that I have created in my local area is great. It is a great area to bring up your children, as there are several local high schools, which are also very reputable to attend. There are also great childcare options if you are a working parent and need that support. The area is also great for pets, as a lot of our neighbours are pet owners and there are lots of areas to walk your dogs, etc. I would consider this area to be safe.

Transport

The transport in this area is great as we have both underground services as well as overground services. Also, we have a lot of bus links around here, for example we have the 31 bus which will take you to Camden Town as well as the 98 bus which will take you to central London. Not forgetting bus 16 which will take you to Victoria.

Community

Living on my street specifically is great as there is a real feel of community here. Our neighbours look out for eachother and it is almost like living with family. Further, we have local parks where the kids can play in the summer time as well as a big playground area.

Amenities

The quality of life in this area is good. We have a mix of a lot is leisure activities such as parks for the children to play at during the warmer days as well as a lot of shopping opportunities such as TKMaxx, Primark, Clarkes and other local charity shops. We also have a mix of different supermarkets to buy groceries at for example: M&S Simply Food, Sainsbury’s, Iceland, Tesco and Aldi. We are also very close to central London; it is just a short busy journey away Oxford Street. Living here, we get to experience the best of both worlds - quiet as well as busy when needed.

Too many council estates nearby.

Area feels unsafe. Generally dirty. Too many council estates nearby.

Transport

Connected to the bakerloo, overground and jubilee line. Lots of local buses. Driving is a pain now due to covid pacement extensions. Some places walking distance.

Community

Parking is ok but expensive. Can easily get visitors permits. No traffic noise. People here are mostly working couples. Some families. Most places have gardens. Pretty trees on the streets.

Amenities

Loads of lovely shops and bars. Good places for coffee nearby. Cheap shops on the high road and better quality mofe expensive shops near Queens Park
