    Hey

    I'm about to graduate and my dad offered to help me in my job search. So he told me he is willing to support me by paying the rent for 6 months as a gift

    Anyway, I'm looking for a studio [30-35 m2], in an area that is trendy & lively [bars/pubs/shops...] and not far from a big park.

    And I'm interested in either East or North London [zone 1 or 2].

    A friend told me shoreditch is a good area to start looking at.

    Hopefully I'll have more opinions thanks

    If your dad can afford Shoreditch or nearby he's a wealthy man.

    North London.

    East London is a living hell, trust me. :/

    I lived in Angel for a year, I absolutely loved it
    Then I moved to Lambeth North with my gf for 2 years, a big mistake.

    So I want to move close to a lively area (Camden, Angel, Shoreditch, Liverpool street).

    The budget will be £200p/w

    Depends what your budget is. If you do want a nice place, shoreditch, angel, bank.

    I don't live in Shoreditch, but last time I went there I found it to be a really nice place to hang around, and the boxpark there is pretty awesome

    Hmmm.... I would go north rather than east.

    If you are working it's a good idea to be living somewhere close cause it'll save you a fortune in travel costs.

    If you want a place thats fairly trendy but also has loads of parks I'd reccomend Twickenham in Richmond. Even though its south west (i think), rent might be on the costly side but if you can afford shoreditch then you wont have any worries.

    I don't know if I can afford Shoreditch, I haven't searched yet. I just said I liked the area as well as Angel/Liverpool St.
    (my budget is £200 per week max)

    Anw thanks for your suggestion. I've never to Twickenham yet.

    You're either delusional, spoilt or incredibly wealthy to be able to afford a studio in London...

    If you are working then you will want an easy commute. So, you won't want to go too far North. A quick suggestion off the top of my head would be Holborn.
