The rent isn't London's cheapest, but the tradeoff in commute can be worth it.

A generally pleasant place to live. It can be a bit of a walk for groceries if you're in the market for something specific, but otherwise amenities are at hand. The area is safe, though not too many areas for kids to play. An expansion into compost pickup would be a great addition. The rent isn't London's cheapest, but the tradeoff in commute can be worth it.

Transport

Welcome to the crossroads! King's Cross/St Pancras will get you where you need to go: between trains, buses, and the Tube, it's hard to find a place that's out of reach. Some cycle lanes, though more developing. Generally clean, if a bit loud on Gray's Inn Road. Warning: some accessibility issues if you are dependent on level pavement.

Community

If parking is a must, this may not be the place for you. Bin collection for larger buildings have had significant rat issues, though pickup is otherwise solid. Traffic can be a bit loud on Gray's Inn Road, though even one street off is much quieter. The area is a mix of students and renters - families and twenty somethings, pensioners and middle-aged. An overall congenial atmosphere, though the (usually) constant tourist presence can get a bit wearing if you're walking in highly trafficked areas. Anti-social behaviour minimal, but a huge presence of cameras.

Amenities

King's Cross and surrounding area has an abundance of restaurants, both chain and local. The bars are clustered around Caledonian Road, but there are both cosy local and hip cocktail bars to choose from. For open spaces, head to Coal Drops Yard. Not too much right next to the station for shopping, but if you get even a few minutes out there's some nice variety.

The atmosphere is calm and friendly.

I love all the nearby green spaces. The atmosphere is calm and friendly. Upmarket shops and feels safe. I’d say it’d be suitable for children’s and pets as well. Feels very safe here in comparison to other parts of London

Transport

I’m 5 mins from the major international hub of the country, which is spectacular. There are also smaller stations nearby which are also handy. The area surrounding King’s Cross gets a bit dodgy at night, but I never feel unsafe

Community

Good parking availability. Commercial waste collection. No traffic noise, slight underground noise. Mostly owners and students living in area. Quiet for now though

Amenities

There is a Waitrose superstore nearby, which is great for central London. There are really pretty bars with outdoor terraces scattered around Bloomsbury, which is lovely. There are also a range of cuisines offered by local restaurants. Couldn’t be better

I love Bloomsbury

Lots of green spaces which is quite surprising for London. Some of the roads need replacing but mostly quite good. There’s also a fair few tourists.

Transport

Russel square tube is very congested because of the lifts so sometimes you have to walk to Holborn which isn’t great. There is a fair amount of moped crime but it’s not higher than the rest of London.

Community

A lot of students and professionals. It’s a very young area with few families. Parking is a nightmare and it is in the congestion zone

Amenities

Bloomsbury has a great range of bars cafes and restaurants. It’s got one great gym and a few other smaller ones sitter around. It is also famed for its second hand book shops which are incredible
