I do like living out here - less diesel pollution, the young foxes are back on the lawns, the wood opposite, the peace. Even if you live in the heart of Hampstead or Mayfair you don't get what I have. Or perhaps I am always happy with what I have rather than what I don't have.

CEO, Know one aspires to live in Clapham save those who move to London for the first time. It is mainly an over busy polluted dump, surrounded by equally busy dumps. Perhaps you could make an exception for clapham old town.

My choices would be:

Richmond Hill/River
Hampstead
Wimbledon Village

Lydia, your area is not the only area that has foxes, Wimbledon has plenty, they seem kind of domesticated nowadays.
Bright Carver what would yours be?

I love my Balham/Clapham hood. Good but unpretentious restaurants and pubs. Plenty of green spaces if you don't mind sharing them. Nice and handy for access to the south coast and Gatwick.

However, I can't understand anyone who wants to live in London forever.

I'm eyeing up the fringes of Mitcham at the moment.

I hate airports but Gatwick is 1,000 times better than most others.

Gatwick is a seething mass of human misery. It is so comfortably the worst airport i have ever been to it could launch its own line of chez langues

Obadiah, all those places are awful. Islington like clapham for first time londoners, Clerkenwell I can imagine is dead the evenings and weekends, ditto Bloomsbury which is occupied mainly by barristers chambers.

"Clerkenwell I can imagine is dead the evenings and weekends, ditto Bloomsbury"

I know. Amazing right?

Also, not sure I should really pay attention to anyone whose choices are a list of places you would get if you asked the same question on an Americans in London expat site. Talk about a lack of imagination.

Heh heh, yes morden, colliers wood, wimbledon southfields croydon and all those other glamourous suburban 'villages' in London, Surrey.

Brad, Morden as you rightly say is not great, but it is not London, it has a Sutton postcode, albeit it is in a London Borough. Colliers Wood is fine, not my come of tea though. Wimbledon is regularly voted and written about as the most desirable place in London, and has a London postcode . Croydon is Sot East London, and has a CR postcode and not a london one.

Surrey is not generally London.

When I say the best part of London you have failed to consider:

Wimbledon
Putney
Clapham ( most parts)
Fulham
Barnes
Merton Park
Raynes Park
South Ken

(1) Maida Vale (or Warwick Ave) (funny enough I actually stayed there when I rocked up in the Smoke...can't even afford to park there now)
(2) Chiswick 'ish - closer to Hammersmith (but not too close)
(3) Somewhere like Chelsea but I want a house do perhaps Fulham Road somewhere

(i) horourable mention to Richmond but like Mexico and the US ... so close to Mick Jagger and so far from God

1. Barnes - proper riverside village near Central London but without the chain shops of Wimbledon village.

2. Richmond Hill

3. The maze of streets by the river in Chelsea.
