London is now the world’s third most expensive city. As artists and students struggle to find affordable spaces, investors are buying up large chunks of town; forever pricing regular people out of traditionally cheap and accessible neighbourhoods.
This London tube map, designed for the masochistic and money-motivated, is a rough guide to the average house rental costs at each well known tube station. No surprises then that the closer you get to central, the most hellish the rent becomes.
The map comes courtesy of Find Property and each price is calculated using the prices of currently available properties within a 1km radius of the station. The most shocking part? These are the prices for a typical one bedroom.
The most expensive station is Hyde Park Corner (£2920!) and the cheapest one is Hatton Cross (£324). Anyone feel like moving up north?
