New Cross, South East London

What: Stuck at the end of the Overground, this area may have a reputation as a bit of a dive, and there’s also a lack of Tube, but  New Cross is super-cheap.

And, if you don’t mind a bit of scuzz, it’s actually got plenty going on thanks to its student population – the area is home to Goldsmiths University, where Britpop legends Blur formed.

You’ll find a night out lasts a lot longer as your cash will stretch further in the arty bars.

And you can also satisfy cravings for jerk chicken as there are plenty of top-notch Caribbean eateries and try The London Particular for 'classic English with a modern twist'.

Rail
: New Cross; Zone 2

Rent
: Average flatshare £430pcm

Ealing Broadway, West London

What: Way out west, at the end of the Central and District lines, Ealing Broadway is a thriving area, with lots of pubs, bars and cafes in which wile away the evenings.

Here you’ll find your usual chain pubs, as well as a few trendy, hidden gems, such as The North Star, in The Broadway.

But you’ll have no problem finding a different place to eat at every night, as well as venues offering cheap drinks, pool and karaoke.

In terms of accommodation, it’s more affordable than trendy east London, with rooms and flats inside Victorian townhouses on offer, attracting young professionals.

You’ll also see many Aussies, Kiwis and South Africans, as well as Irish in this area.

Into keeping fit, or like picnics in the sunshine? Head to Osterley Park and Gunnersbury Park – the latter hosts sporting events during the summer.

Rail: District, Central; Zone 3

Rent
: Average flatshare £500pcm
