The best place to live in London has been revealed.

Six London locations made it into the 2022 edition of the Sunday Times Best Places to Live list, with Teddington taking a spot on the list.

The area gained a spot on the list "thanks to its gorgeous green spaces, dreamy Thames-side towpaths, and vibrant high street."

And although it took the crown in 2021, Sunday Times said it still managed to the naysayers to keep its place in the list due to its well-loved features. 

The average house price in Teddington is set at £815,000 and since 2020 the area has seen a growth of 15%.

At the top of the list Crystal Palace took the crown thanks to "its community spirit and a fascinating history". 

Whilst Hanwell and King's Cross followed closely behind with their community feel and great local amenities. 

A new addition to the list was New Malden with its "large, vibrant Korean community" making it the destination for fans of "Squid Game and BTS."

In the last spot on the list was Victoria Park which "offers easy access to the happening ’hoods, but its family-friendly blend of glorious green space, independent shops" and more.

How is the The Sunday Times’s Best Places To Live created:

The Sunday Times’s expert judges behind the guide assess a wide range of factors, from schools, transport, and broadband to culture, green spaces, and the health of the high street. 

They look to celebrate improving towns, villages or city centres, attractive, well-designed homes, and locations bursting with community spirit – which the pandemic has shown to be the most vital quality of all. 

An average house price for each location has been supplied by Halifax, the sponsor of the guide, and up-to-date information on broadband speeds has been provided by, the UK’s leading independent guide to broadband.

The comprehensive guide, which includes 70 locations, is released online today and an edited version will be available in the paper on Sunday.

Helen Davies, The Times and Sunday Times Property Editor said: “The Sunday Times Best Places to Live list is necessarily subjective. Leave it just to statistics and you will never capture the spirit of a place.

“For that, you need to visit to take into account that ‘you have to be here’ feeling. Is the pub dog-friendly, for example? Can you live car-free? What are the schools and houses like? Is it multicultural and multigenerational, and can it offer a good way of life to lots of different sorts of people?

“This year we have discovered new best places to live, from resurgent city centres in the North, rejuvenated suburbs across the country, hidden villages in the Southwest, and a commutable Scottish island.

“We hope there is something to suit everyone.”
