the rest of the bor­ough.

There’s a size­able pop­u­la­tion hail­ing from Bangladesh, Pak­istan or In­dia.

Green spa­ces in­clude Cas­tle Green, Great­fields Park, and slightly fur­ther away the large Chase Na­ture Re­serve.

The area boasts the Na­tional Trust prop­erty East­bury Manor.


Crox­ley is the last stop be­fore reach­ing Wat­ford on the Metropoli­tan Line to the north west of Lon­don.

A salary of £25,500 could get your that one bed of your dreams in an area about 40 min­utes from the city cen­tre.

Out in Zone 7, this is out in the far­thest reaches of Lon­don, near the M25. In fact, its ac­tu­ally in Hert­frod­shire.

Its lo­ca­tion in the sub­urb of Wat­ford give res­i­dents easy ac­cess to the town’s shop­ping and leisure fa­cil­i­ties. If you’re com­mut­ing into the cap­i­tal a seven day tube Trav­el­card will cost £67.70.

And the five most ex­pen­sive tube sta­tions to live near:

St Paul’s

Fancy liv­ing in the shadow of Lon­don’s most fa­mous re­li­gious build­ing? Well, you bet­ter start ask­ing for that pay rise.

You will need an an­nual salary ex­ceed­ing £170,000 to con­sider buy­ing just a one bed prop­erty in this prime cen­tral Lon­don lo­ca­tion on the Cen­tral Line. Such pay lev­els are way beyond pub­lic sec­tor work­ers, cor­po­rate mid­dle man­agers and even top bosses. Ac­cord­ing to To­tal­lyMoney, aver­age CEO pay is around £134,000.

Bond Street

St Paul’s Tube sta­tion is the most ex­pen­sive to live near

Prop­er­ties so pricey you’ll need a mas­sive an­nual salary of at least £173,400.

That’s more than the Prime Min­is­ter’s £150,000 pack­age - mind you she al­ready has a pretty smart cen­tral Lon­don home of her own to en­joy.

Bond Street sta­tion it­self ex­its onto the busy Ox­ford Street near to Sel­fridges and John Lewis depart­ment stores.

From here you can eas­ily walk to des­ti­na­tions in May­fair, Maryle­bone and Soho, packed with pubs, bars and restau­rants.

Man­sion House

- £176,100

The clue is per­haps in the name Man­sion House (on the Cir­cle and Dis­trict Lines) is in a very wealthy part of town, in fact it’s right next to the Bank of Eng­land.

Un­for­tu­nately, un­less you’re go­ing to stage the heist of the cen­tury, you’re un­likely to be able to af­ford to live here.

Some­one with a salary of around £176,100 could nab them­selves a one bed around here.

Hyde Park Cor­ner

You could be a neigh­bour to the Queen if you’re for­tu­nate to re­ceive a stel­lar salary and buy a home on Hyde Park Cor­ner on the Pic­cadilly Line.

Buck­ing­ham Palace is just next door to this su­per smart part of town, sit­ting be­tween St James Park, Hyde Park, Bel­gravia and May­fair.

Ba­si­cally, it’s mo­nop­oly dream­land – in fact the board game’s most ex­pen­sive prop­erty, Park Lane, is just nearby.

Ox­ford Street and Knights­bridge are just short walks away.


As glitzy as it gets - in­cred­i­ble apart­ments, shop­ping in Har­rods, flashy cars, ex­pen­sive restau­rants and strolls in Hyde Park.

Knights­bridge prop­er­ties, on the Pic­cadilly Line, are only avail­able to the su­per wealthy. You’ll need to be paid a cool £248,600 a year to buy just a one bed home here.

For a bit of cul­ture then the Vic­to­ria and Al­bert, Nat­u­ral His­tory and Sci­ence Mu­se­ums are eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble on foot. Time to start play­ing the lot­tery...
