Why do you find NW6 a great place to live?


"Kilburn is perhaps one of the most dynamic and atmospheric areas in London. Sitting comfortably in Zone 2, only 15 minutes from Oxford Circus, travelling is a breeze, and I'm never more than a 30 minute tube from the majority London has to offer. Unparalleled resources, such as 3 high-street supermarkets, an Argos, several restaurants, bars and cafes, one hardly needs to search beyond Kilburn High Road for a bargin. On the... more

"I love Queens Park for the village feel it has and the award winning Sunday farmers market. Oh and the wonderful royal park!"

"I love West Hampstead and NW6 as it is the area where the city and suburban wonderfully contrast. Being next to the beautifully dirty streets of Finchley road and the picturesque primrose hill and Hampstead. Kilburn market on ones doorstep gives more contrast and life to the area. Working class meets the middle class everywhere and with no issues. As a guy, I love the enormous dining and restaurant choices- eating is life and ... more

"Inner city is where I live, Scant thought to residing in suburbia I'd give. My tower block greets me with friendly faces, Neighboring Hampstead and Queen's Park are fancier places. Multiple buses and stations for outer and central, Car parking space if I want it, but in Kilburn, non-essential. Big names like Smiths and Marks & Spencer, nestle alongside pubs and cheap greengrocers. Vibrant, interesting city-dwellers... more

"South Hampstead is a fantastic area to live in. Its closeness to the green spaces of Primrose Hill, Hampstead Heath and Regent's Park and its superb transport links, Waitrose and all the other High Street shops on the Finchley Road. One of its greatest assets though is the incredible cosmopolitan, vibrant atmosphere. You can hear English; Russian, Polish, French, Japanese, Chinese and American English yes, its all here. As... more

"West Hampstead has its own character and energy, younger in vibe and edgy-er than neighbouring Hampstead, it has a classy community feel yet the lively bars and cafes entice you in when you walk up West End Lane. Peaceful residential streets and close to the Heath means you can escape the city but with three train lines you can get to work within minutes. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!"

"Because there are trees everywhere you walk."

"great diversity and very cosmopolitan world"

January 2015

A local park, Paddington Recreation Ground, which has plenty of green space, play areas for children, dog exercise area, different sports grounds, and a gym. There are many Primary and Secondary schools, wh... more
