Top Ten Nicest Places In London

The Top Ten

1 Richmond

Although it is expensive it is a nice place to live and it is probably the safest part of London. Richmond Park is also just down the road and most shops are in big retail parks. There is a great decent sized Pets at Home there so if you have any animals it's a great place to live

Really posh Very calm And nice parks I've been to one with deers and came to eat my food But It was ok very kind and Lovely houses

Richmond is a very Posh Area in Southwest London with lots of Parks and Lakes

4 Knightsbridge

Expensive Posh Area, right near Chelsea, similar to Chelsea

Good shopping nice place

5 Kensington

Very expensive part of Central London.

Science Museum, Hyde Park, Natural History Museum, Q&A museum and Royal Albert Hall is there too. Even if you cannot live there it's a great place to visit.

6 Harrow

Peaceful and beautiful area but with benefits of being close and accessible to the city

7 Hampstead

North London Village. Calm Area with a Village-esque Feeling

8 Totteridge & Whetstone

In The Very North London, lots of green space and a very Peaceful Place.

9 Chiswick

Green Area with lots of Parks and Recreation near Hammersmith in West London

10 Camden

Camden Town is disliked by many critics, however I can't see how it is a bad place to live, there is a brilliant market and nearby, there are many nice, yet affordable, homes in close proximity to the centre of London.

The Contenders

11 Mitcham
12 Belsize Park

Just south of Hampstead, Belsize Park is an expensive, yet great place to live with excellent transport links to the City centre of London.

13 Highgate
14 Putney
15 Peckham


16 Morden

Why is Morden here? The place is now starting to become heavily deprived, with an increase in crime in the local area. There are nice towns nearby though, like Wimbledon and Mitcham. - aldwych94

Why is this high up the list? Europes biggest mosque is located there and loads of gang violence

17 Islington

Canonbury and Highbury are nice. Avoid Holloway at night though. Lots of crime there.

Very clean bright atmosphere. Sees like a pleasant civill district.
Architectual buildings compliments the sweet shops, restaurants, therefore blends in nicely with all form of buildings. No nasty fast food shops with their smelly stench.
The council houses difficult to distinguish because well keep, West end standard very cleanly maintained.

18 St John's Wood

St John's Wood, home to Abbey Road and Primrose Hill, is a very beautiful and affluent area of London. There are also many things to do in the area, as London Zoo and Regent's Park are both nearby. - aldwych94

Bit stuck up but still quite pleasant and no major hassles

19 Greenwich

Lovely by cutty sark and beautiful royal Greenwich park. Lived there for about two years. Nice walks along the Thames too.

Renovation of Docklands mean North Greenwich (O2) is much better than it used to be. Just hop on the bus to North Greenwich. Takes about 5-10mins

20 Fulham

If I would live any where in London, it would definitely be Fulham - favourite area!
