The local area is fun, multicultural, vibrant, accessible & never sleeps
The local area is fun, multicultural, vibrant, accessible & never sleeps. It's as safe as you are smart. The area is suitable for all family members and pets, with local parks and plenty green space. Parking can be expensive but is free after 5pm on most rds or 8pm closer to shopping malls. You will never be bored or go hungry in West London.
Transport is excellent in my area, the only time transport becomes an issue is rush hour as congestion builds heavily on the shepherd's Bush roundabout and wait times can be exhausting. Trains are available on the doorstep or within a very short walking distance. There are bus stops within 100feet of each other and night buses seem plentiful although I do not use them as often anymore.
This area is a vast mix, in particular the majority are likely to be renters as house prices in this area are extremely high and most will not have the deposit nor earn enough to cover the mortgage. If anyone does own they bought the property a long time ago or they share the property to reduce costs. There are not as many students in this area but there's a music school which houses a couple hundred. Anti social behaviour doesn't seem to be an issue, but its all perspective.
West London is vibrant and multicultural, the shops and amenities reflect that with its vast array of cuisine in particular. The shepherd's Bush Market has everything you need in one place from clothing to accessories, homewarw to furniture, music and trinkets to food both Caribbean and west African. The streets are aligned with shops and local talent displaying their unique goods and then onto the main shopping complexes which house high street brands and designer. Shepherd's Bush, Hammersmith & Ladbroke Grove are the most popular especially during the summer months and carnival. The only thing missing is entertainment in the form of an ice skating rink and bowling.
W12 is home! We love it here!
W12 is home! We love it here! From the market with its array of colours, scents and characters to ultra modern westfield with its shiny floors and polished walls! W12 has so much to offer, you can go on a world wide adventure with out ever leaving this post code! If you do have to leave (perhaps you have a job in a less cool area) you will have no issues finding a selection of different transport routes to take you where you need to go! (Ps. we need more Boris bikes!) W12 you rock!
The links to central London are great, I’m never late! I wish there were a few more Boris bike docks though!
Our street rocks! We live on a quiet street which sees minimal traffic and the only annoying sound to be heard is the odd fox in the middle of the night.! There’s a mix of renters and owners on all the streets surrounding us! But everyone takes good care of their homes and front gardens and rubbish is always kept under check! We love our neighbours! The family that live below us knocked every single night of Ramadan with a different delicious dish for us all to enjoy! And to the right an Australian teacher helped us out with homeschooling projects and made great friends with our dog :) There is so much love , support and solidarity between neighbours :)
Shepherds Bush is a seriously cool place to live! Wide range of places to eat and you can sample food from all over the world! Great parks For walks with your awesome dog! West field is on our door step so we always look fly! If you want to love where u live move to W12!
Traffic noise is unbearable, so be aware, constantly during peak times.
East Acton area is not safe at all, and I have noticed that it is getting worse and worse with time. This is due to the lack of control from police, especially in the night. People can harass others without even being noticed, and it might easily lead to robbery, stabbing, raping, etc. People who live in the area are generally poor or not wealthy enough to afford a better place. I can't see many families living here, probably because they know it is not safe. So I wouldn't recommend it, not even for pets as parks are quite far from the centre, which is even more unsafe than East Acton itself. It is not a trendy area, there are no proper places to hang out with friends or family, and it looks in need of regeneration, mostly regarding the safety. There are a few fruit market stalls where you can buy cheap fruit and vegetables, and also a couple of market shops, but not a proper market with food and everything. The only good thing of East Acton is the closeness to the massive shopping centre called Westfield.
East Acton station is pretty easy to get to, it is a small tube station but it is served by Central Line, that can take you to Westfield Shopping Centre in just two stops, and this is very convenient. Central Line runs every 2 minutes on day core and it also provides a night service on Fridays and Saturdays. It's an old tube line but it connects many key places in London, very useful for tourists. There is no air/con on the Central Line so it gets really warm in Summer. The trains are usually clean but, as many tourists use it, sometimes you can find some trash on the seats. Buses are available and the service is reliable. Traffic in the East Acton area is the worst part of it. You might find traffic clustering on the roundabout with Old Oak Road. The area is generally not safe, especially in the night.
Traffic noise is unbearable, so be aware, constantly during peak times. The area is not safe because it is not controlled by police, or not enough. I have heard of many stabbing and robbery attempts around the area, especially on the main street in the night. I used to finish work very late and I was scared and pretty uncomfortable every time I had to go back home. Mostly renters live in my street, and they are people from different nationalities. Many house are crowded with people, like 10-12 people per house, which is shocking. This shows again that there is no control in the area, and the local estate agencies can sublet illegally. The local people are generally Arabic or Turkish. Bin collection is a reliable service which provides us different days to collect our recycling rubbish. It can be noisy when it gets collected early in the morning, as you can clearly hear the truck that empties every bin.
We have very few shops around our place, mostly off licences and kebab takeaway. On the main street, we have Greggs, a few coffee places, many fruit stands, discount stores, a pharmacy, two drycleaners (laundrymat) a takeaway pizza place, one estate agency and a quite big Iceland (supermarket). A short walk away, there is Homebase (DIY store) joined with Argos. No proper restaurants nearby, so this is what is mostly missing. And also well known stores such as Boots, Superdrugs, Wilko, etc. The area looks poor because of the presence of many cheap places to eat (generally selling Arabic food and fried chicken), only takeaway.
My area is very centrally Located
