Now we have our areas to look at we will surely be very spoilt when it comes to trendiness, these famous London regions hold many with such varied delights to explore. Many are world famous and yet there are countless that are known to just a few and mostly enjoyed by the local community and rarely have outside visitors / tourists.
Here are some trendy locations for property searches:
Gauging Square (St Katharine's & Wapping): Well known for the marina and the approximtely to the Thames and the City, Wapping is a popular location for people to purchase property and especially those working East side of the City. There are many well known bars and restaurants in the area with some very well positioned pubs with views over the Thames River.
The little known and newly developed Gauging Square with many attractive apartments is a special location with a close by Waitrose and Champagne Bar serving the locals with a communal central space for people to relax with fountains and further water features.
Bromley. This region has a wealth of new developments and also older character properties giving it both a youthful feel yet traditional With many train line links to the centre of the city and outwards, property in this region are a good long term investment.
