More about the area:
Since the Jubilee line was extended here, West Hampstead has developed rapidly. It’s extremely well connected to central London by Tube, with Underground, Overground and National Rail services within walking distance. Throughout the area, the traditional style of the older Victorian houses mingles with modern new builds.
The area’s got a young and lively feel, with plenty of pubs and bars around and many residents with jobs in the arts and media. When people move here, they tend to stay for a few years, and families in particular might appreciate the sense of stability as well as the reception, primary and secondary schools close by.
Independent shops and cafés give parts of West Hampstead a ‘village’ atmosphere that feels like a break from London. The Maygrove Peace Park is a great place to get away from it all for an hour or two.
