Great for commuting, easy travel links, but lacks outdoor lifestyle

It’s very convenient if you work or study in the city as you can walk or cycle. I’ve noticed a lot of people here using e scooters to get about now for commuting purposes. There’s a lot of restaurants nearby and a lot of independent ones which is nice to see. The main downside is that I don’t really know many of my neighbours. The atmosphere is young professional, a little trendy but up and coming to an extent with some parts needing regeneration. This area is okay for children but no so great for pets. I feel safe in this area.

Transport

Where I’m based is located to several stations both on the Underground and Thameslink within a few minutes walk - Chancery Lane, Farringdon, Kings Cross St Pancras, Holborn. There’s also a good bus network, Santander bikes located everywhere too. The transport links are reliable, regular and clean. The traffic can be a little bad on High Holborn and Grays Inn Road during the busier times. This area is located on the night tube and there’s plenty of buses so getting around is never an issue.

Community

The parking available is quiet limited to be honest but there’s no restrictions on a Sunday. The bins are collected regularly. There’s not much traffic noise as it’s a residential road. There’s a mix of homeowners and renters at least that’s what I’m aware of. It isn’t really a student area so it doesn’t get too noisy. It’s mostly single people and couples from what I’ve noticed.

Amenities

There’s some shops on Grays Inn Rd nearby, mostly small restaurants but a lot more on High Holborn. If you’re looking for more street food vendors then Leather Lane is just a short walk away. There aren’t too many supermarkets nearby, there’s a Co-Op and that’s pretty much it to be honest. There’s a few pubs but they are mostly located on High Holborn. On that road, there’s also Bounce bar. There aren’t many open green spaces but a short walk away near Holborn station is Lincoln Inn Fields which is lively with university students. On High Holborn is trendy but very business heavy with offices so it makes it a great location to be in. There are countless gyms nearby with a budget to suit everyone. The main amenities that are missing is probably a larger supermarket and an outdoor bar or restaurant.

A food lovers dream

Due to it being a very small residential are there is a good sense of community and a safe area for children and pets, although the nearest park is approx 15 minutes walk from the area for children

Transport

Close proximity to Chancery Lane tube station and a bus hub area to literally travel anywhere in London in any direction, a very reliable service with buses running in all direction throughout the night

Community

Street parking is a nightmare due to Hatton Garden gold and diamond district, there are 2 car parks available but at quite a cost

Amenities

Large range of reasonably priced bars and restaurants to cater for all walks of life in the gold and diamond region of London, street market food stalls offering a wide variety of European and Asian fusion from 11.00 in the morning till 14.30 and at bargain basement prices later in the afternoon when they are preparing to pack up, takeaway food shops ranging from Subways, PieMinister along with Japanese, Chinese, Korean, with an independant stone baked pizza place, kebab shops to name a few, bars ranging from your standard pub chain bars like Youngs, Nicholsons and Wetherspoons to Craft beer pubs all within a short distance from each other.
