Where to live as a young professional in London
Where should you live if you are a young professional in London? Finding a place to rent in London can be a daunting task, especially if it’s for the first time. Where do you even start? What areas do you narrow down your options to? Here at Man and Vans we understand this stressful process and have come up with some useful tips for your next move.
North of the Thames is where most young professionals tend to reside. Two thirds of 25-35 year olds are now living in what is seen as the trendier and more established side of the river.
Are you more arty and bohemian? If this is the case, then East London is perfect for you. East London is where you will find numerous quaint coffee shops and second hand book shops. East London is vibey and electric. The cost of living is far cheaper than central London. Rental prices here are seen to start at around £1900 – £2900 per month (based on a two bedroom flat). Some popular places in London that the creatives prefer include Haggerston, Shadwell and Hackney Central.
West London is known for being far more expensive. In West London you will find more traditional London architecture. Attached to the wealthy stigma, West London is where you will find mansion-lined streets, many cocktail bars and designer shops. Kensington and Chelsea are favoured as well as Fulham and Holland Park. Prices for rental start from around £3900 per month (based on a two bedroom flat).
North London is generally more populated with families, however it still remains an ideal spot for young professional as it is close to transportation. Camden and Angel are popular spots and offer a vibrant after work hang out spot. Camden has a variety of music genres and is favoured by those in the fashion industry. Flats in Camden start from around £1,500 per month.
