Considering a move to West Hampstead? A few good reasons to do it. Located in North West London, West Hampstead presents a great lifestyle with a strong community vibe. The High street, West End Lane, offers a good selection of cafes, bakery, restaurants and shops. This small area also offers bookshops, fitness centers, independent shops and a weekly farmer market.
The neighborhood is perfect for families, with plenty of afterschool activities for children, a reasonable choice of local good schools, among them the very sought after Primary CofE Emmanuel School and a huge sense of community spirit and respect amongst local residents.
Very often, families who turn to move to West Hampstead will remain in the area for decades. You can regularly meet at the local Waitrose people as famous as Emma Thompson or Bill Nighy. West Hampstead can be considered as a cheaper version of St Johns Wood, but as nice to live in.
This is also an excellent area for young professionals in search of a residential lifestyle close to Central London with brilliant transport links, (10mns to Bond Street with the Jubilee Line), direct access to St Pancras International, the City or Gatwick Airport with the Thameslink, and commute to East and South London with the Overground.
