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.

What I like the most is the sense of community and the diversity of the area because it exposes my kids to different cultures and ways of life

As previously mentioned, the area is perfect for my children who can play in the local parks with their sports teams. What I like the most is the sense of community and the diversity of the area because it exposes my kids to different cultures and ways of life which they can learn from and take forward into their lives. I would say on the whole the area is trendy, with quirky shops and places to eat making it an enjoyable area to live in.

Transport

The transport services are very convenient and if the tube is not working there is always a bus route available. As I work locally, I am always checking my mobile apps to see the availability of transport and the apps are always right so I think because of this the convenience and availability of transport links are very reliable. The only issue are the crowds from 6-8 in the morning as it is very claustrophobic getting on transport sometimes, but I guess there is not a lot that can be done about this.

Community

I own a car and have to pay for a permit which is expensive as there is hardly any free parking. Even with a permit it can be difficult to find a space nearby my house. Bin collections are fine, the binmen are prompt and do their job efficiently. There is very little anti-social behaviour however there is a lot of traffic noise, especially in the mornings. My street has a mixture of renters and owners and we all get on okay with each other.

Amenities

The local shops in my area help me support my family because they provide local and international groceries which help me cook delicious meals for my family. The open spaces are perfect for my children as there are many local parks and sports teams/clubs which my children participate in. My favorite bars are the Wigmore and Market Place Bar because they have good vibe and very friendly staff who are always keen to help and have a good conversation
