Under £200 p/w

If you’re a young professional, a student or just a single person living on a limited income, you’ll no doubt be delighted to learn that there are rooms available at very competitive rates. And while many are around £117 per week, you can find the odd one for as little as £92 per week. Although some are happy to live in shared accommodation, others may prefer the privacy of their own, and the great news is that there’s plenty of unfurnished and fully furnished self-contained studios regularly coming up for rent. Much of this accommodation is in prime location too, allowing easy access to the underground as well local facilities such as cafes and wine bars.

£225 - £500 pw

For those operating on a slightly higher budget there are no end of options available.

And while the price range of under £1000 for luxurious properties may seem low for this part of London, the properties live up to the most glamorous in the city.

This delightful ward offers the best of London without the feel of the hustle and bustle that many can expect from the city.
