Find the cheapest and most convenient area to live in London

The average Londoner commutes for over an hour a day (so says the Daily Mail). This adds up to a (hot, stressful and expensive) year of your life.

You may dream of living closer to work, but find rents in central London unaffordable. Living in London usually requires a compromise between commute time and rent.

We’ve created a new widget that shows this tradeoff. Simply enter where you work and currently live, and we’ll show you the stations with a shorter commute and lower rent:

You may notice that the ‘nicest’ areas won’t appear. Chelsea and Hampstead (for instance) all have pretty poor transport connections and are super expensive. Clearly there is more to deciding where to live than commute time, but we think it is a good start!

Have a play and let us know what you think.
