Reasonably handy for City and West End
Very lively, trendy, young area with a good range of clubs, bars and restaurants. Camden Lock Market. Very handy for City, Central and West End
Exciting modern redevelopment of Docklands waterfront area. Part of prestigious extension to City financial district, for which it is very handy.
Once a thriving cosmopolitan dockyard with bustling markets and pubs on every corner the mighty docks which brought these settlements to life have departed east on the tide of containerisation and a new look and a new destiny awaits what once passed for some of the East End's most reviled slums. Other open spaces in E16 include Canning Town Recreation Ground on Prince Regent Lane which offers football, tennis and a junior cycle track. The Keir Hardie Ground on Tarling Road also deals in football and has a playground and there is a further recreation ground on Newham Way.

The demographic shift in the Canonbury area can be seen in the inexorable rise of new luxury developments, Islington is still best known for its exceptional Georgian terraces and tall early Victorian houses.
Carshalton Village has its own busy parade of shops, pubs and restaurants framed to the west by a large pond that adds to the unique village feel to this area. Roads of Victorian and Edwardian terraces and semis lie off the high street. Pond Street, with its rows of clapboard sixteenth century cottages adds real character whilst handsome late Victorian and Edwardian semis surround the streets off of Park Hill. Property becomes more spacious and expensive towards Carshalton Beeches. Archetypal stockbroker belt accommodation of all styles lying in tree-lined, wide roads can be found here. The largest detached properties with substantial grounds can be found in the wide roads fringing the open areas of Oaks Park.
Bigger housing stock in what used to be a suburb. Plenty of open spaces. Handy for the South Circular orbital road.
Excellent views over Docklands towards Canary Wharf. On the borders of the more expensive Blackheath and Greenwich areas, Charlton offers good affordable housing for families and local London people including council accommodation. Close to many good local facilities, major supermarkets and big store outlets. The area has a good community spirit and feel. Easy access into central London via Rail and Bus. Possibly one of the more underrated areas to live in London. A successful premier league football side too allows you to enjoy your Saturday afternoon at the match.
Combining the benefits of the town with the space and serenity of the country, Cheam is an attractive village with a good range of Victorian and Edwardian family homes, prestige properties, and a vibrant rental market. Green open spaces are aplenty with Cheam Park and Nonsuch Park to the west of the village centre.

Clerkenwell is the home of one of London's largest nightclubs, Fabric, and several pre-club bars, along with the Sadler's Wells Theatre on Rosebery Avenue. Clerkenwell became a fashionable place of residence in the 17th century and still is today.

Northern suburb, good sized housing, gardens. Convenient for M1 giving access to North
Colliers Wood is not the most distinguished of areas and suffers from comparisons with its more affluent neighbours-Wimbledon and Merton. It doesn't have grand period properties, access to expansive parklands (Wandle Park is the closest open space), or a particularly interesting high street. It does have is a tube station on the northern line and a good supply of Victorian terraces and 1930s semis, both of which make it an attractive choice for first time buyers in search of relatively cheap houses and conversion flats.
Sought after area, spacious with large houses many with gardens. Nearby Wimbledon lends its village atmosphere with many good restaurants and good shopping. Handy for the tennis. Good access to the Southwest by road.
Pleasant area good sized housing, gardens. Convenient for M1 giving access to North
