Hampstead Village – right next to the famous Heath, Hampstead Village is a quaint and vibrant area by day, and a bit more relaxing as the evening approaches. The village is one of the most unique spots in London for shopping and cafés, and you’re only a short walk away from one of the best places to see London’s Skyline on Parliament Hill. It’s not one of the more expensive postcodes, but it has won many people over with its character. Read about our Hampstead Removals Service
Putney – if you’re looking for cosy coffee shops and comfortable cafés, relaxed pubs and excellent restaurants, then Putney is worth a visit.

Tips to Help You Move to London –
One of the best tips we can offer anyone who’s thinking of making a move to London is this – plan early. Begin with some searches for areas you’d ideally like to live and start a wish list for your ideal home. Note what sort of property you’re in the market for, be it a townhouse or a detached three-bed. The number of rooms is essential, and you’ll also need to know how many bathrooms you need. If a garden is preferable, it goes on the list. Before you know it, your list will give you an outline of your ideal house or apartment.
Getting an estate agent onboard early is also a good idea. They can take your wish list and use it to trim any properties that don’t fit the bill. That will save you a lot of time and effort when it comes to viewings. The agent will also work with you to refine and enhance your list to go into further detail with regards to budget and other things to consider.
It’s also vital that your wish list includes your hobbies and tastes. If you like the theatre, you’re in the right city as London has the best in the world. But it’s always worth seeing how far you have to travel to get to the West End. You may prefer smaller productions, so make sure you’re close to a local theatre. That’s just one of many things you need to consider. If you have children who are still in school, then you’ll need a strong education network nearby. Health care is also essential, so factor that into your criteria. Luckily, every part of London has excellent amenities and places to eat and drink, but it’s also something that belongs on your list.
