    I feel like every borough has both really posh and really rough parts of it, so I think that even if you're thinking of moving to one of the boroughs here, it's important to look at the specific area

    All of Kensington proper, by that I mean NOT north Kensington or West Kensington, neither of which is actually Kensington, All of actual Kensington is VERY expensive. Wycombe square, for example , is just for Russian oligarchs. £100million for a house there ! Nearby Knightsbridge has apartments for the same money. One member of the “ kleptocracy “ has 3 or 4 of them opened up into one huge apartment costing close to half a BILLION pounds ! Central London can be rather expensive. I’m afraid this lassie misleading you , what could she know at about 14 years old?

    I'm thinking about Kingston or Richmond (a bit closer to the centre than King.). I hear a lot of good things about this area. Loved Greenwich from what I experienced. Haven't been living in any of them though, so I don't know them THAT well.

    • Sabotaz80

      The areas between Kingston and Richmond are hands down the nicest, most middle-class family orientated parts of London, if you can afford it though

    I am trying to decide which tube stations to consider. I will work as a supply teacher all over East London. Commuting cost, accessibility and time need to be considered. Any ideas Londoners? Zone 2 would be ideal but I am open to zone 3 as well. The place I enjoyed the most when I visited last summer was Greenwich market(Cutty Sark). It felt safe, was charming and had a neighbourhood feel. I didn't know it was on the pricey side as it is not central. Sorry Jen, I just don't know where else I can inquire about this. x

    I was born and raised in Peckham and people give it a bad wrap I'm not gonna lie Peckham used to be bad but now it's calm I haven't heard about a stabbing or shooting in Peckham for ages and the last one that happend was gang related so if ur not involved in any of that you'll be safe I feel the safest when I'm in Peckham swear down I love it here

    Tower Hamlets????? I lived in Campbell Road and a man was murdered by gunshot in a gang related shooting just minutes before my wife and I walked by that particular section of road.

    • Sabotaz80
      Sabotaz80 Year ago +1

      That murder wasn’t gang related, it was a father in his 40s who was shot AND stabbed to death after asking a group of drug dealers to stop selling crack on his road. Bow has always been a dodgy area

    I’m from Islington. A great place to grow up. Many generations of my family are from Islington including my own Children. We have a canal running right through and close to theatres and museums. We were very privileged to have all this close by for school trips and outings with our parents. We also have beautiful parks. It’s one of the most expensive boroughs because it’s so close to the city.

    It does very much depend on what services you require, tube, overground railway, clubs, shops, libraries,schools, supermarkets, they all matter to different people..

    I HATE the Northern line Bank and High Barnet branches. I only ride on the Charing+ trains or to Edgware/Mill Hill East. Now I know Mill Hill East trains go via the High Barnet branch, but OK. I especially HATE the Finchley area.

  • Transport News Finland

    Earl’s Court is not a borough, but still the best place in London.

    BTW I live there
