Are you looking for excellent transport links to central London? Think you can’t afford it? Then think again because there are some great value rental opportunities that offer great city living, just a stone’s throw from the excitement of central London. Here are our top picks for great value places to live that London letting agents are talking about.
Chelsea
OK, so Chelsea isn’t cheap, but when it comes to renting, it’s not as expensive as you might think. With its upmarket vibe, Chelsea is smart and sophisticated but relaxed enough to attract the younger crowd. With great shopping in Sloane Square and on the King’s Road, ample traditional pubs and high-end bars, Chelsea has it all. A short walk to South Kensington and Knightsbridge, Chelsea is supremely well connected and is just a few stops on the tube line from the epicentere of London. Beautiful Georgian and Victorian architecture lies either side of the King’s Road and up towards Fulham Road. Get in touch with local London letting agents and you’ll see there are plenty of long and short term rental opportunities, ranging from large townhouses to compact flats.
Fulham
Renting in Fulham offers easy access to the delights of South Kensington and Chelsea but with a lower price tag and a more homely, younger feel. With a great range of eateries and night spots, it is lively, bustling and a favourite for young professionals. It offers easy access to central London via tube and bus and is a favourite with young professionals looking for a touch of West London elegance without breaking the bank. Handsome Georgian terraces are the norm in Fulham, even if some have seen better days.Adjoining Parsons Green offers affordable options too. Contact your London lettings agent for more information.
Vauxhall
As London letting agents, we love an up and coming area and Vauxhall fits the bill perfectly. Vauxhall has superb transport links straight to the heart of central London. One of the places to be over the coming years, Vauxhall is seeing a resurgence as people look for affordable areas that are close to the heart of the city. New bars, clubs and restaurants are popping up and yet Vauxhall retains a slightly gritty edge, which has its attractions. Chic apartments and a stunning riverside location are amongst the delights of this latest London hotspot. Vauxhall really is tuning into a beautiful area –just ask your London lettings agent about the Riverlight development as proof. It’s a sleek new apartment complex and indicative of what Vauxhall is becoming.
