Any fukers live or pass by Tower House?

I've renamed it 'Pussy Towers' fuck me there is some amount of crackin' gash stays in there…

We looked at a gaff in there, was alright but smelled and was too small for what they wanted.

Same, decent flat but the rooms weren't that big for 700 a month or somthing. Now I live about between Colombia Road and Broadway Market in a newly refurbished place for less than that.

i was thinking of moving across the road to them, my flat is old and does my head in, some of them flats at Pussy Towers look good, heard a few people sa they are too small though.

Mate lives in a crackin' flat on Commercial Road, just down the road from me, he pays same as me and his has a balcony and no mice.

I used to live on Buckfast Street just off of Bethnal Green Road in some newly developed flats (well they were 4 years ago) - I think it was £270 a month for 2 of us and the flat was lovely, got it through Square Mile, think they have quite a few places around there. My bird used to live on Hanbury Street and paid £375 a month but they didn't have a living room and it was like a rabbit warren but they did have a nice roof terrace.

Finally found somewhere on Barnsley street just off Bethnal green road. Got a good sized double room with double bed for 500 all in. Not to bad I thought? As it's 2 mins from bus and 5 from tube…


What's the area like dr getting stabbed by 12 year old 'baddermanz'?

You should be alright, that's not too far from me. Few estates round that end though.

Is there anywhre decent in West London where you can get a studio for less than £550 all in? Ive got one in Earls Court at the moment but getting shafted for £750 (not including bills), need somewere cheaper. Seen some cheapish places in Shepherds Bush but its a bit shit.

Long time bump.

Looking at getting back into london in the next few months.

Want to be east of old street, studying near there, not to far out really. How far north is it good/safe to go? No pussy, just don't want to be getting mugged every week. Want to be 'in the mix' really, have some good pubs and cafes near and things.

Anyone got area experience and specific areas in the location to recommend or advice.


Looking at £600ish a month, bills either way. Too little, just enough, too much!?

Thanks

What's it like around there, any further info?

I'm kind of open to anywhere in that area, just want somewhere with young people, pubs, bars, cafe's. Just generally a bit of life going on. And just generally not too shitty areas, no ghetto.

Looking at relocation, Can live anywhere in the South, but job will cover an area from central west past reading. Mrs will be working central so was thinking maybe on the edge of the tube, dont want a studio or share, need at least 1 seperate bed. Also needs to bed decent road links and ideally near a david lloyd ! Was thinking somewhere near Hounslow. (not sure if its any good there ? Want somewehere safe.) Richmond looks nice too. budget is about 900 quid.

Could also be outside of London, Slough, Maidenhead, Reading etc, but it looks like getting a train into London is pretty expensive ?

Any tips or advice about suitable areas welcomed.

Whats it like driving in and around kingston, not necessarily rush hour, should be 10 am starts. Also kingston doesnt look to be on the tube ? would an underground inclusive travel card cover this area ? (looked like a zone 1-6 underground pass is £193 a month) just thinking how much it will cost the mrs to get into work every day and want to keep this under 200 quid.

^ Yep, travelcard 1-6 covers the underground and overground..

Don't go to Hounslow, seriously, It's a god awful place..

Twickenham could be an option, (Zone 5) easy to get on the motorway to reading and there's fast trains that gets you in to central in 20 minutes.

Cool, how far does the travel card 1-6 extend for overground services ? Is it like inside the m25 or something ? What's up with hounslow, is it rough ? Thought Brixton was abut rough too no ?

Cheers for the advice.
