Looked about - Tottenham Hale is pretty dead but transport links are really good so not really bothered by that.

It seems logical that Tott Hale will improve as people move up the A10 - White Hart Lane regeneration and potential Crossrail II being confirmed next year.

Has anyone got any experiences of the area?

Thoughts on housing market in London in general?

Whether prices in Tott Hale will rise?

I was Raised in Tottenham (still here momentarily)…Also between Seven Sisters and Wood Green. Tottenham Hale prices will defo rise, know a couple of friends who have moved into the Fountayne Road warehouse studio area and it legit looks like the second coming of Hackney Wick. Parties are always popping on a Friday. Additionally there's bait gentrification like The Beehive pub, Beavertown brewery , chickentown etc etc. The closer you can get to the overground line that runs through Hackney, the better imo.

Moving out of my home / studio in Hackney in the next few weeks.
£930 a month + bills for a huge warehouse space / studio sharing with 5 others all early to mid 30's.
Sky Mega package, ps3, super fast broadband, massive kitchen, washing machine, great sitting room etc.
Right next to London fields park, Lidl, a great cinema and super close to a tonne of transport links,
bethnal green underground is 10 mins away on the bus, lots more busses 2 minutes from the house.



PM me for more info.

You'd be completely and utterly insane to buy in London at the moment. It's in the midst of a massive housing bubble & is probably nearing it's peak.

Makes me laugh - how much are they being flogged for? 600k? Shots of Prada etc.

Most people ain't got a pot to piss in.

^ Since I moved out of London, each time I'm back there it seems more and more like the Dalston yuppies are taking over, not even just in East. Easier to spot when you're not there everyday. Something needs to change though, I'm not gonna be able to move back for years

London has been gutted. Ordinary Londoners are leaving in droves - the place is becoming a playground for the super rich interspersed with immigrants slumming it.

Where I'm from in west London - Northolt / South Harrow / SouthRuislip - the place is becoming such a dump.

Of course they weren't. Why would you think that?

No matter how bad the complainers think London is, they only need to move a few streets away for a totally different London experience.

It's not an easy city to live in for the unemployed or alone but if you put the whole of you into making it home, it's worth it.

I say that because I had to go to Swindon for a work conference. No matter how bad it is in London, be very glad it is not a suburban hell hole.

Somewhere North or East would be the best bet as there's most going on around there. Angel, Highbury, Bethnal Green, Stoke Newington, Dalston, Clapton and round Victoria Park is all worth a look. You'll get a nice one bedroom in any of those areas for that cash.

Any London people want two tickets to 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' for this Saturday (19:30 showing). £100 (face value is £65 each).

So many deluded people - 2.5k will get you a nice 2 bed in most areas, even 3. Why the fuck would you want to live in Stoke Newington?

Guvnor I would look into West London or South West - unless you wanna move to east or north where everyone from outside of London tends to reside these days because it's seen as hip and cool. Bunch of 30 somethings making a silk purse out of a pigs ear
