Best areas to live in London

As the capital, it’s unsurprising that housing prices are highest here, with average costs standing at £385.794 – a 4.7% rise from last year. With so many neighbourhoods offering a variety of amenities, there’s an ideal neighbourhood for everyone in London.


Ideal for first-time buyers and young professionals alike, Islington has entertainment and culture in abundance, with multiple theatres (including Sadler’s Wells), bars, cafes and restaurants – including the world-famous Caledonian Road. With everything you could possible need on your doorstep, prices are understandably higher, with average property costs standing at £875,606 in Islington.


Located south of the river next to Peckham, Dulwich has retained a village-like feel, which makes it extremely popular amongst families. Split into three sections: East Dulwich, West Dulwich and Dulwich Village; each area is full of leafy avenues with pretty terraced and semi-detached houses, and plenty of independent shops, bars and restaurants. Home to some of the best schools in London, Dulwich house prices are above average, at £594.095.


Richmond is the only borough that straddles both north and south of the Thames, and its leafy parks make it hugely popular amongst families. Richmond Park and Kew Gardens are both located here, in addition to several museums and galleries, including the Museum of Richmond and Twickenham Museum. Transport links are ideal into central London too, with both train and tube stops nearby. Average house prices here are £713,000.

Bethnal Green

Bordering Hackney and Shoreditch, Bethnal Green is located in the achingly-cool East London, but with slightly lower property prices (average properties stand at £772,109) than its neighbours. You’ll have everything on your doorstep here, with Columbia Road well worth a look around – not just on a Sunday – as it’s home to a range of independent cafes, shops and art galleries.


Near Notting Hill and Paddington, Bayswater has the benefits of being in the centre of London, but without the hustle and bustle. Most of the action takes place on Westbourne Grove, which stretches all the way from the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, to the City of Westminster, through Portobello Road. Living in Bayswater also means you’re on the doorstep of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, and property costs reflect this – the average price is £1,229,456.

Things to do in London

With a seemingly never-ending list of things to do and see in London, we couldn’t possibly cover even half of it! Whether you’re living in London as a family or young professional, you’ll have plenty of things to do to keep you busy on the evenings and weekend.

Eat your way through Borough Market

Sample street food at its finest under the train tracks of London Bridge. From Iraqi delicacies to Mexican cuisine and everything in between, you can quite literally eat your way through the world at Borough Market! Over 1,000 years old, it’s the oldest food market in Europe, and well worth a visit.

Visit the many museums

From the classic British Museum, Natural History Museum and the V&A, to the more out-there Magic Circle, Toy Museum and Pharmaceutical Museum; wherever your interests lie, there’s sure to be a museum to suit you. Plus, plenty of them offer free entry – perfect if you’re sticking to a budget.

Picnic in Hyde Park

What could be a more classic pastime for a summer in London than picnicking in Hyde Park? Pass by the Wellington Arch through to the Albert Memorial, before visiting the Serpentine Galleries in Kensington Gardens. You could even rent a boat down the Serpentine – it’s £12 per person for one hour.

Book a Jack the Ripper tour

Everyday at 7.30pm, the Jack the Ripper tour meets outside Aldgate East tube station. Visit the scene of every murder whilst hearing about the gruesome deaths, as well as what life was like for prostitutes in 1888. Led by dedicated Ripperologists who are all members of the Cloak and Dagger Club, be prepared to be thrown back into Victorian London.

Catch a show on the West End

London and the West End are synonymous with one another, and if you’re living in London, you won’t be able to escape the glamour and glitter. From Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to The Book of Mormon, Wicked, Matilda, Mary Poppins and more; take your pick from some of the greatest shows in the world.
