Quintain Living: It’s where to live in West London
Fortunately, when it comes to choosing where to live in West London, there are plenty of great options, with lots of green spaces, easy links into the city centre and fun things to do for both adults and kids of all ages. But there are only a few places that manage to combine all of these elements into an all-round perfect place to call home - and Wembley Park is one of them.
Not only is it a 15-minute neighbourhood on multiple train and tube lines (and just 18 minutes to Bond Street), it’s also quickly developed into a friendly community thanks to its parks, community centres and activity groups. It also boasts options for most when it comes to the apartments. We’ve long been big fans of Wembley Park, and that’s why we’ve been providing welcoming and fuss-free homes there for years.
