Pimlico is a neighbourhood where all the classes of London seem to mix. It is a bit of an extension to the fabulously wealthy Belgravia, but has some areas that are highly liveable and very interesting. It is slightly more isolated than other areas, but that’s what charms some people who live here. The Pimlico towerblocks have some of the best riverside views of the whole northern bank of the Thames. Like most of west London you'll have trouble finding affordable rent. It really is. Most of the area is long typical British terraced flats. The huge Churchill Gardens estate (Winston himself used to live in the area) might not be as pretty, but it feels more honest than the richer streets to the north. Living in Pimlico is conveniently connected for anyone studying at London's South Bank University, but, as it's on the Victoria Line, students can be in the city centre for universities like: SOAS, The University of London, The University of Westminster, City University, or LSE in a relatively short time. Pimlico is connected to the wider city by Pimlico Tube Station (Victoria Line).
