London Neighbourhoods

New pezer

I will relocate to London in 2020. Looking for suggestions for cool neighbourhoods.

I want something pretty close to the center, an appartment, for now just to rent.

I heard Barnsbury is pretty nice. Opinions on it?

    Canary wharf is pretty cool and fits your requirements

      Canary Wharf is fine. But it ain’t remotely cool.

      Yeah I want something vivid, I’m young and will not be living with my family there.

    How long of a commute do you want? Do you want roommates?

      Not in zone 1 if you want to live in a decent area.

      Basically, pick 2: good area, short commute, < 1500 (without roommates). I'd suggest looking in zone 2 near a station that gets you to work in < 30 mins (lots of areas will). Some good ones are North London (Camden, kentish town, belsize park, etc), St John's wood/Swiss cottage, East London hackney/dalston, Islington/Highbury, etc.

      Also, keep in mind you need to pay council tax ontop of rent, and usually utilities aren't included. Also, tv tax.

      Feel free to dm if you have more questions

      Thanks so much. Yeah, zone 1 is not mandatory, 2 is fine. Will reach out to you 👍🏻

      Also, if your office is in shoreditch, central line would probably be better

    Barnsbury is pretty sweet if you work at Google since it’s like a 15 minute walk across Regent’s Canal that’s super nice. Apart from that Caledonian Rd is not too exciting and you’ll probably have to walk down to King’s Cross to get anywhere. For me it was the perfect mix between central and quiet (used to live near Warren St and that was insanely noisy). But you’ll have to look for another neighborhood if you want to have tons of bars around the corner.
