  WHAT’S LIVING IN Pimlico LIKE?

Pimlico is the kind of magical place that feels like it was forgotten by time. It still has an old-world feel that many people think about when they think of London. Even the businesses are old fashioned, with book binders, small bakeries, market stalls, and cobblers.

There are a few small, tucked-away cafes that offer up traditional foods without the fuss. And the food is just as good as those fancy cafes in neighboring communities, but comes at a fraction of the cost. A local institution is 'Grumbles on Churton Street'. You’ll find a few options for pubs as well, with some out-of-this-world bar food.

This is one of the most popular places for people to move because it is absolutely packed with housing for all budgets. There are grand homes with beautiful gardens and there are also small apartments with just the basics.

Some people call Pimlico “London’s wallflower,” but it has all the daily conveniences you'll need and good transportation access. It’s perfect for someone who doesn’t have the cash on hand for some of the insane price tags you'll see in other neighborhoods.

Pimlico is bordered on the north by Westminster, on the east and south by the Thames, and on the west by Brompton and Belgravia.
