Fantastic location, but losing sense of community
The area is really trendy and lively, but those who have lived here for many years (I've lived here for close to two decades) have seen the area change and seen local businesses being chased out by drastic rent increases. It is heartbreaking and disappointing.
Transport is very easy in the local area. There are stations and bus stops everywhere so accessing the rest of London is very convenient, even at night. However, being so central means that there will be a lot of traffic during rush hour and sometimes it can be faster to walk, even if it's a long journey. Cycling is always faster because you can use the roads and outpace the cars because there are a lot of traffic lights. However, unless you have your own bike, getting a Santander bike may be difficult at busy times as well.
Many families live on my street as I live in a block of flats. If you can register for a parking space with the council, it is usually fine, though sometimes you might have to park a little further than you'd like (5/10minute walk). As it is central London, there is a lot of anti-social behaviour at night and it can get very loud, even up until early hours of the morning. You have to get used to it. There are also constant streams of tourists and visitors to the centre of London which means it can be really difficult to even leave your home sometimes. What makes up for it is that the location is great.
Living in central London is brilliant in that anything you need is right around the corner. There are many great restaurants and shops, both big names and local businesses. It can sometimes be a tourist trap for those who don't know where to look when eating out, but once you get to know the place, you can find a lot of hidden gems. However, there has been a rise in gentrification over the past decade and well-loved local businesses have had to close, to be replaced by larger shops who can afford the rent. In that sense, there has been a loss of a community feel in the area. In terms of amenities, there are so many options that you'll find what you need within a mile, however what could be improved is the number of public toilets, so that on Saturday mornings, you don't walk out onto the streets to unpleasant smells.
I am very happy to live in such a great place, and it is very affordable
It has a very safe feeling but because people are very friendly and most of them are minding their own business. You would come to celebrate a birthday party, or a night out with the girls or with the boys, it is suitable for children and pets. Most people adore pets and they are very approachable to them. I am very happy to live in such a great place, and it is very affordable.
This has very good transport links being very central busses are running all day long and some night time, you won't be missing a bus as they coming every 5 minutes or so. Overground has good connections to the other lines that goes from central to other areas in London. It is a very clean area, with regular bin men doing their job properly also some are friendly too. The noise would be the only issue here but considering how busy it gets no one really notice it once they get to live in this area. Highly recommend!
It has few parking spaces but the Mayor of London is working in building some more spaces which is great for the neighbourhood. The traffic it's constant from morning to noon but night time can get quiet and peaceful. It is cheap to rent in this area than to own a house but that is because people have been considering to find a new building to live in rather than a more older house. There is foreign students who rent, elderly couples and some young families. It is a great community we all support each other, highly recommend whoever consider moving in this area won't have any regret in the future!
We have a beautiful area here , with lots of amenities from local shops to restaurants, and everything you might think off. It has also a University within walking distance from the tube station. The very famous called MEATliquor it is a restaurant where you can chose to dine-in or takeaway who has a very nice retro atmosphere. amazing friendly personal with a great hardworking manager which I personally know. There is not much missing in this area apart from a Gym but that is not far from where we live either.
It is fun for students, so please keep this part of the culture alive
It is very nice. It is fun for students, so please keep this part of the culture alive. There is a lot to do, and living in London is great
Transport is good, as we are in the centre of London. Lots of tubes, buses and cycle paths mean it is easy to get around
It is very lively, but this is a student area so this is good. Traffic is always busy, but for central London it is to be expected
Student at UCL, so there are lots of student bars and good nightlife. The restaurants are also nice, but a bit pricy
I like it because it is in central and all of the things that i need is just around the corner
