Moving to Bayswater (London) - How is the neighborhood?

Jump to last reply

Without much prior knowledge about London neighborhoods, I’ve taken a flat in Bayswater. On most real estate company sites, the apartment was marked as part of “Notting Hill” (which was marked on these maps as the entire area north of Hyde Park as far east as Marylebone).

Now, doing more research into the area, I’m reading that Bayswater is certainly not Notting Hill, have seen it called a “wannabe Notting Hill.” I am now getting more concerned about safety and whether or not this will be a nice place to live. I don’t need 5 star luxury, but was expecting a nice residential area.

Is this a safe area? Are there nice restaurants and shops nearby (again, doesn’t have to be luxury, but nice)? Is it a clean neighborhood? Would be a great help to hear from people familiar with the area. Thanks!
