I am in the process of contemplating a move from the US to London. I am currently interviewing for a position that will have me working about 40 minutes west of the Paddington rail station. (I would need to take the train every day.)
To try and help minimize my commute, but maximize my London experience, with a budget of £1,500 per month for a 1 bedroom flat, what neighborhoods would you recommend I start my search in? I want a SAFE neighborhood that will make me feel comfortable to be so far away from home.
