Finding where to live can be tricky - not only do new parents have to factor in financial costs and commuting times, schools and green space become of paramount importance once children arrive. 

We’ve rounded up the best places to live in London for young families to help ease the decision making process.

North London

North London is home to a variety of cultural and historical landmarks and fascinating architecture for its residents to enjoy. It's one of the most multicultural areas in the UK and considered a more upmarket part of London.

For North London as a whole, the average property price currently sits at £860,724, with the average rent £1,998 PCM. 

Below we’ve listed some of the most popular areas to live in North London.

Camden Town

Camden and some of the areas surrounding it offer affordable properties and a more alternative lifestyle for its residents. One of Camden's best features is its sheer amount of variety. Regarding property, you can find anything from wealthy townhouses to ex-social housing. The average property price here is currently £1,638,792.

Camden Town has some of the best transport links. Two branches of the Northern Line operate at Camden Town station, the Overground serves Camden Road, and there are several buses available. It's only a 20-minute walk to Kings Cross St Pancras too.


Located in the borough of Camden, houses in the area are larger than average, so would be perfect for families. Hampstead is one of the wealthiest parts of London, so if you are saving up and on a budget, you might want to avoid looking for properties here. This is the most expensive location on our list, with the average property price currently at £2,112,233.

The wealth in the area has allowed independent retailers, bookshops, grocers and butchers that have existed for generations, to survive and flourish. This has created a pleasant community feeling in the area which doesn't look to be subsiding.

Finsbury Park

Located within the three boroughs of Haringey, Islington, and Hackney, recent redevelopment programs have led to the emergence of revamped and modernized eateries, cafes, restaurants, and bars for its residents to enjoy. The average property price here is currently £631,513.

This area is appealing to young professionals and families alike. The park is one of the best features, boasting 110 acres of space with tennis courts, football pitches, and a boating lake.
