North London’s hip spot. A little downmarket but full of character. Dozens of pubs, clubs and music spots plus canal & lock and all very near to central London. For more info see our Camden feature. One of the cheaper places to be.

Swinging London of the 1960s swung here. Still home of great fashions, restaurants and bars and the King’s Road. Lots of serviced apartment blocks and charming little mews houses, all expensive.

Parklife in the centre of the capital does not come better than the leafy avenues around Holland Park. Sandwiched between Kensington and Notting Hill with all their facilities. Not cheap.

Spohisticates abound in the classiest address in London. Diplomats, emigres, and the media jetset. Try South Kensington for location near the main museums and Harrods. Housing, eating and socialising is expensive and exclusive here.

Smart area with good location for shopping (Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the designer boutiques on Sloane Street). Distinguished Victorian and Edwardian apartment blocks afford ample options for the flat-hunter. Expensive.

Once the premier location, now eclipsed by the Royal Borough (Kensington and Chelsea). Still very expensive, however. No where is quite as close to where you will end up working: West End or City. Hyde Park is but a stroll away as are the elegant shops on Bond Street.

Carnival home and host to the famous Portobello Road market. A bit dowdy but full of charm and life. Moderate.
