Millions of people want to buy a home in London, and so it pays to be prepared before you enter one of the world’s most competitive property markets.

Where to buy
London is a city of villages, each with its own quirks, styles and prices. Identifying exactly where you want to buy is the first step, but keep an open mind.

Knightsbridge, with its department stores, elegant restaurants and international influences, is very different to neighbouring Chelsea, with fashion boutiques, a village feel and unique riverside properties. Belgravia, Mayfair and St James's are each different again.

Factors to take into account when searching for a property include schools (and school runs), transport links, and local amenities such as supermarkets, gymnasia, parks and restaurants.
