    Kilburn, Kentish Town, Finsbury, Holloway, Islington, Shoreditch, even near Holborn. Any info on these areas and whether they are affordable?

    Kilburn would be the most affordable out of the areas you have mentioned. Islington and Shoreditch are more central hence more expensive, Finsbury park tends to be slightly pricey due to good transport links. Kentish Town, I don't know alot but I would guess costing more than Kilburn.

    Is Kilburn a big Irish/Polish area? Is it nice?

    Affordable? Well that depends on your personal budget really. We don't know how much money you got therefore how are we meant to say whether it's affordable or not. I'd say south east london is the cheapest but obviously not the nicest. Shoreditch maybe?

    Those area's you listed arnt affordable, just **** holes full of estates and crime, even so, because its London £270,000 wont buy you a house there, unless its incredibly run down.

    No, that's including Hampstead. That explains it.

    Are you sure you aren't exaggerating crime. I know people who live in Stoke Newington and East Finchley with no problems at all.

    I think it is fairly mixed, fair number of Black people and I have seen Jewish people in the area as well.

    Greenwich is a nice area with a few fair new developments coming up, more on the pricey side. Dartford, don't know alot bout the place but it has to be cheaper than Greenwich. Not close to the heart of London but worth looking into.

    Some parts of greenwich are nice, especially the bit nearer the cutty sark. It's a big borough though, and some parts aren't as nice. Dartford makes me cry.

    kentish town will be pretty expensive, kilburn is big irish/polish as somebody above said. to be honest, anywhere in london can be cheap or expensive. theres no fixed prices per area, just look and youll find something.

    Avoid Dartford if possible, its not nice. Look at Kilburn, if you research enough I think you will find an affordable property.

    I live 2 minutes away from East Finchley, East Finchley is one of the more expensive areas in London, its a couple minutes away from Muswell Hill and Hampstead, and has Bishops Avenue ! where every house there is £1M+. Compared to the rest of London, its fair to say Islington is significantly higher, in one of them programs saying the best and worst places to live in the UK, i think the borough of Islington was either 1ST worst or 4TH. and a couple surrounding areas like Camden was near the top of the worst areas to live. You'd be better off getting a flat in a nice area, imo. £270,000 would get you a 2bed flat in Muswell Hill
