Which area of ​​London is yours?

It does not matter if you came to the capital recently or live here for a long time - in London there is an ideal place for everybody. This city, from the fanciful old blocks to the central streets, is as diverse as its population. We will help you find your "area".

For gourmets.

Perhaps, Hackney - the most promising area of ​​the city in terms gastronomy. Experienced gourmets from all over East London flock to the doors of the new concept-cafes and restaurants of this borough, from the Broadway Market to the secret establishments on Mare Street. Hackney is full of surprises for those who like to have tasty food. You will definitely not make a mistake if you decide to live near Borough Market. The best food market of the city will be added to all the advantages of living in the center of London. Within walking distance from your house you will find everything you need, from organic vegetables and home-made cheese to the stunning dishes of Gourmet Goat. Also there is Monmouth Coffee here.

For people of art.

Camden has always attracted musicians and artists of all sorts. This borough, free-thinking and not alien to rebellion, remains forever in the hearts of admirers of beauty. Here you can get acquainted with new music groups of London, enjoy jazz at a well-known theme café and learn a new craft in the Camden Arts Center. The restored Kings Cross also experiences a surge in popularity: its galleries are open to all comers again. And you can walk to Soho, famous for its theaters, clubs and galleries. The choice is huge: the entire center of London is at your disposal.

For lovers of peace and quiet.

The Kenonberi area ​​is located between Dalston and Highbury. Along its shady streets neat little houses are lined - the best property in North London. From time to time new cozy cafes are opened here, and walks under the tree crowns give a feeling of peace. When residents of London get tired of everyday bustle, they search for silence in the numerous city parks, the largest of which is Richmond Park. There you will feel far from the noisy metropolis. You can walk, play sports or just relax from the crowd - there is enough space for everyone.

For admirers of country life.

For a quiet life, go to Walthamstow, an area where the spirit of the community is as strong as the spirit of creativity. The residents of this northeastern suburb of London have given the surrounding countryside a delightful rustic charm: corner shops, entourage pubs, craft workshops and public festivities in parks await guests. Greenwich is not just a tourist mecca. It is one of the nicest London boroughs with a huge park and a view of the Thames. If you not to take into account the eternal flow of people photographing everything around, the district is like a provincial town, full of old pubs and picturesque street markets.

For those who want to be in the thick of things.

There is no more central area in London than Marylebone. Based on numerous testimonies, we can safely say: no region will give you what the zone 1 gives. The whole center of London is at your disposal, which is especially pleasant on weekends. You can wander through the museums, then arrange a brunch and do not worry about a glass of wine drunk, because it is only a few steps to the house. Only in recent years, residents of the capital have remembered that the station "Elephant & Castle", located just 20 minutes walk from the South Bank, is included into zone 1. Now this region is one of the fastest growing in the city. Apartment buildings grow here like mushrooms. Thanks to the excellent transportation with other parts of the city, this forgotten pearl of London finally gained a well-deserved recognition.

For intellectuals.

Bloomsbury is the center of intellectual life in London and a district for those who are interested in the literary past of the capital. This name was used by a whole group of English writers and artists who created the "Bloomsbury Group", of which Virginia Woolf became a member in 1920. The stories of Dickens, Eliot and many other great Londoners were somehow connected with the Bloomsbury area. In addition, it was here that the first private parks and the pretty Georgian square appeared. Notting Hill is not just a district of bookstores. This is also a real paradise for writers and literary agencies. The reading public from all over West London gathers here. In the 1960s, the writer Martin Amis and playwright Alan Bennett lived in Notting Hill. As a result, the district became the center of the liberal elite of London, revealing new books, plays and films to the world.
