Situated to the West of Regent’s Park, Maida Vale has become a popular living choice for media and city professionals, successful musicians and their families.
Surrounded by nature from every corner, Maida Vale is characterised by leafy streets, small squares and independent shops, offering a village-like atmosphere, in contrast to its proximity to central London.
Housing and Schools
Maida Vale is dominated by red-brick mansion blocks from the late Victorian and Edwardian eras. This is due to the fact that until the late 1890s, the Maida Vale land was owned by the Church Commissioners, who opposed the development.
After the developments began, mansion blocks became the obvious choice for this W9 neighbourhood due to their practicality and European fashionability. If you prefer a more alternative housing choice, the Little Venice Canal is lined with colourful houseboats.
The school selection in Maida Vale does not disappoint. There are plenty of schools both in and around Maida Vale, including the French-English bilingual school L’école Bilingue and The American School in London that follows an American based curriculum.
Out and about in Maida Vale
Despite its peacefulness and village-like feeling, Maida Vale is nothing short of an entertaining London neighbourhood.
With its 395 acres of nature, Regents Park is just around the corner, which means you could walk down the road and get to enjoy the park’s Open Air Theatre, the London Zoo, or one of its excellent sports facilities, including the largest outdoor sports area in central London.
Another big Maida Vale attraction are the romantic canals of Little Venice, perfect for enjoying a picnic under the trees or exploring on a canal boat.
With its large offering of coffee shops and restaurants of different cuisines and themes, Maida Vale is also the perfect place to be for any gourmands.
Arts & Culture
From the famous Abbey Road to the BBC Studios and the Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum, Maida Vale is filled with great attractions. There is also a popular fringe theatre, offering regular comedy nights at the Canal Cafe Theatre.
Maida Vale is well-connected to both Central London via the Maida Vale station on the Bakerloo line, and the countryside via Paddington Station, located very close. The area is set to get even better connected in 2018, with the addition of Crossrail to the area.
