Where's good in London

  • Someone tell me where to live in London. I'm told Chelsea's not worth the money, and Brixton should be avoided. Was recommended Chiswick by someone. Good idea? Let me know. Bye

  • Depends

    Depends where ur working. Chiswick is almost suburban, which is nice. Making it easier to own and use a car (more parking, less congestion). However, it is a good hour's journey from the centre (e.g. The City). Chelsea may be expensive, but you get what you pay for. The area is close to everything you need (from bars and restaurants on the King's Road, to every imaginable shop on Oxford St, and to most commercial areas such as The City). The housing in Chelsea is also normally top quality. So essentially your choice depends on ur budget and where ur commuting to. Hope that helps.

  • Difficult

    As the previous poster said, it really depens on where you will work. London's big and travelling aroung taeks a lot of time. Also, money is a big considration - rents in some parts of West London, like Chelsea are really expensive.

  • Cheaper areas near Earls Court

    I am going to be working in Earls Court in the Autumn. Looks like rents are really expensive around there. Does anyone know decent places around there which are not too expensive but mean I will be able to get to work quickly? Thanks in advance for any tips.

  • Broaden your radius

    Earl's Court is one of the best connected areas in London. It's tube station is serviced by three lines (including the two most important: the circle and district line). London's bus network is also more extensive and better than most people realise. As such I would recommend you consider areas relatively far from Earl's Court, if you can't find anything suitable there. As for finding somewhere cheap, perhaps try finding a flat share offer. I have occassionally seen such offers in the classifieds section of this website. Hope this helps.
