This sprawling city has over 500 neighborhoods to choose from, but where you live will be determined as much by what you can afford as by what type of area you're looking for.
Like any big city, you'll find distinct areas that attract a range of lifestyles. For instance, you've got the super wealthy neighborhoods in the west, including Knightsbridge, where it seems like everyone drives a Lamborghini or other supercar. The bohemian (but still wealthy) Notting Hill is nearby. Chislehurst offers meadows with horses and a small town feel. And Dalton is a cool, artsy spot popular with young singles and couples.
So whatever you're looking for -- idyllic country lifestyle; hip, gritty, on-the-rise spot; or an immigrant neighborhood that reminds you of home -- you'll find it here.
Fortunately, we're here to help you narrow down which 'hoods to consider. Our detailed neighborhood profiles show you cost of housing, safety ratings, amenities, local school performance, and more! And if you're not even sure where to begin, use the Neighborhood Explorer to filter neighborhoods based on home size and cost, who lives there, amenities, and location.
