The local area guide to living in West Hampstead

West Hampstead can be found in North West London in the Borough of Camden, surrounded by Childs Hill, Hampstead and Kilburn. Formerly a rural village lingering around London's borders known as 'West End', the self-contained little village was eventually forced to consider a name change in 1975, following regular confusion with the far more famous West End in the capital.

The housing available in the area is comprised mainly of mansion blocks and flats converted from terraces. The area is somewhat self-contained and the majority of amenities and things to do can be found on the busy West End Lane, which has retained its name despite the town's name change years ago.

Information about the local residents

The population of West Hampstead currently sits at approximately 54,000. The average age is below the UK average, at just 32 years old. Tthis is potentially due to the convenient location for commuters, students and young business hopefuls, meaning younger residents flock to the area. The average wage is high and unemployment levels are low, meaning excellent prospects for those hoping to move to the area.

A recent survey shows that approximately 50% of the population have undergraduate degrees or higher.

Nearby schools

There are just a handful of primary schools around the area, and even fewer secondary schools. Primary schools nearby include Kingsgate Primary School, which is ranked 13th in England, with 100% of Year 6 students leaving with Level 4 in Reading, Writing and Maths. St Eugene de Mazenod is a popular school which received an 'Outstanding' in its recent Ofsted inspection. Another option is Beckford Primary School, which achieved a 'Good' in its own Ofsted report.

Secondary schools on offer include independent school South Hampstead High School, which is highly popular and therefore highly competitive for places. Other, less competitive state schools can be found by searching the surrounding areas, such as Mayfair and Hampstead.

Getting around

The area has excellent transport links around London. West Hampstead tube station is situated on the Jubilee Line, which travels further into central London, to main stops such as London Bridge. The Silverlink Metro also serves the area, and travels between Richmond and Woolwich.

Heathrow Airport - the largest airport in the UK - is the nearest airport to West Hampstead, offering travel around Europe and the rest of the world. This can be reached with ease by travelling to the nearby London Paddington Station and catching the Heathrow Express.

Local shops

The majority of activity can be found on the renowned West End Lane. Whilst there are several houses on this lane - perfect for those who like living amidst all the action - a large portion is dedicated to pubs, restaurants and retail stores. There are various chain restaurants, such as Nandos and Gourmet Burger Kitchen, as well as a few independent shops such as J's and Walnut. West End Lane is also home to a Farmer's Market every Saturday from 10am - 2pm, in which local, fresh and organic produce can be found.

The easy transport around London means there will never be a lack of things to do - Camden Lock Market can be found nearby, in which hundreds of shops can be found around the niche market, which caters to even the most unusual of tastes.
