London neighbours (or neighbors)

Who else lives around here?: You found a lovely-looking property available for rent, but you’re just not quite sure who your neighbours will be? Have a look here: www.checkmyarea.com. Armed with the postal code, you can go spying. For extreme examples, try postal codes SW14 7EL (lovely mansions), and E15LA (the most deprived London ward).

A number of websites have recently come online that attempt to help you narrow down on a few neighbourhoods. Try this one: www.findahood.com. You can assign weights to the various criteria – I went through the exercise twice, and our current (and past) neighbourhoods came up among the top 10 both times. This site does not however take commuting / transport into account – suggestions are scattered all over London. It’s hard to get an overview, rather than individual (randomly located) neighbourhoods. But it’s a good tool to help you along on your search for the perfect home…
