Wimbledon Village, with the postcode SW19, has been rated as one of the best places to live in London by The Sunday Times.

The Sunday Times’ judges have visited all the London locations and assessed factors from schools to transport, broadband speeds to culture, as well as access to green spaces.

Wimbledon Village earns its reputation as one of London's premier places to live could be due to its blend of charm, amenities, and accessibility.

Nestled amidst green spaces like Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park, it offers a tranquil atmosphere while being well-connected to central London.

On the high street, the vibe is tailored to lazy Sunday strolling whether stocking up on organic produce at the farmer’s market or enjoying a cortado at the chic Demitasse café.

With its leafy streets, historical landmarks, and proximity to nature, Wimbledon Village provides a desirable balance of urban convenience and suburban tranquillity, making it a sought-after place to live.

The other five locations dubbed as one of the best places to live in London are:

· Crouch End, N8

· Highams Park, E4

· Little Venice, W2

· London Fields, E8

· Forest Hill, SE23

Clerkenwell, EC1, was officially named as the Best Place to Live in London in the annual Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide, sponsored by Halifax.

The Sunday Times judges said: “Clerkenwell embodies all that’s best about life in London, from a rich past of riot and ribaldry to its current status at the heart of the capital’s culinary and creative scenes.

“Culture is covered by the Barbican and Sadler’s Wells, there are cosy pubs, cool cafes, lively bars and some of the city’s best restaurants in a warren of streets and alleys full of fascinating history.”

Helen Davies, editorial projects director and Best Places to Live editor, said: “This guide is a celebration of towns, cities and villages that are each a fantastic place to live in 2024, from Dunkeld to Knutsford, Falmouth to Leeds.

“Wherever you are on the property ladder, there will be somewhere to suit you.

“These are all places where you can feel grounded as well as upwardly mobile: they have a mature sense of community, lively, supportive high streets and an eye to the future, whether that is eco-friendly measures, transport and regeneration, or imaginative inclusion of new housing.”

The chosen locations come in all shapes and sizes, from the tiny Scottish island of Kerrera and the remote Welsh village of Presteigne to big, lively cities such as Belfast, Leeds, and Liverpool.

There are more new entries than ever before in this year’s guide and no place for previous winners such as York and Bristol - the judges looked for improving locations with a strong sense of community rather than famous names with high house prices.

The guide has again been sponsored by the mortgage lender Halifax, which has provided an average house price for each location.

Kim Kinnaird, Halifax’s homes and protection director said: “Where you want to live is a very personal decision. We know it can be daunting whether it’s deciding where to buy your first home or making a move as your circumstances change.

“There can be lots to think about around what is right for you and your family. With a great range of locations suited for different budgets and family situations, alongside a great mix of both rural and urban locations, this is a great place to start."
