Property Investment in England: Focus South and West London

Property Investment in England: Focus South and West London

In our final part of this series, we’re taking a closer look at London’s boroughs located in the city’s South and West.

West London contains the boroughs of Hillingdon, Hounslow, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham as well as Kensington and Chelsea. South London, on the other hand, contains the boroughs of Sutton, Croydon and Lambeth.

West London is, basically, in a league of its own. It contains some of the city’s most expensive postcodes and boasts with a range of attractive boroughs. The area is a great mix of beautiful green space, busy entertainment districts and quiet residential streets.

The local property itself ranges from anything grand and monumental to smaller and more modest. Two of London’s most famous green spaces, Hyde and Regent’s Park, are both located in the area and attract millions of visitors every year.

If you’re looking for a good time or something to do, London’s West will spoil your for choices. The region offers anything from trendy cafes to busy bars and nightclubs, not even mentioning the outstanding cultural venues; the Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith, the Palace on Shaftesbury Avenue and the Natural History Museum and Science Museum in South Kensington.

London’s South is a great location for anyone commuting into the city on a daily basis due to its proximity. But the area also comes with its own perks. It turns into its own world once a year when the tennis is on at Wimbledon. An event not to be missed.

Property Investment in England: Focus North and East London

Overall, compared to some other of London’s boroughs, some parts of the area give more of a young family vibe rather than living in one of the world’s biggest conurbations.

As with all areas of London, the South and West also come with rather big price tags. Although you’ll probably need the deepest pockets when considering a purchase in London’s West with its high-end quarters.
