The Worst Things in Chiswick, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Chiswick.

The Worst Things
  • Kew Bridge Station - a disgrace
  • The awful women in enormous 4x4s they can't drive which they really need to take their child to prep school-well Chiswick is known for its mountainous terrain and treacherous driving conditions..
  • The traffic calming measures in Hartington Road, locally known as 'lunacy lane' The increase in grafitti in the last year or so.
  • Peeps from kensington getting stabbed on my turf.
  • the house prices are insane!
  • crime rate
  • The A4 Road. I live on Hogarths Roundabout and it really stinks!
  • With house prices rising all the time unfortunately the "yuppies" have now moved in, the "oh how lovely to see you darling" ones!!!!
  • Mortimer and Bennet Food shop.Turnham Green Terrace. The service in here is "funny".There is always a tense atmosphere "in the air"from the "staff".Maybe something do with the high prices like Nougat bars @ 10 each. The staff do not seem to like helping customers at all(for instance rudely refusing to weigh vegetables)and appear cross if people do not buy anything.Some of the other customers are a bit "off"too. One day it all exploded in a major hooha with The proprietor using sexual swear words at a customer.The self declared odd greengrocer next door m&c (quoted as saying "we sell queer gear here"joined in with physical threats and it all became quite an argy bargy.I prefer Harrods so much "cooler".
  • When I moved away [financial reasons]
  • The Piccadily line no longer stops at Turnham Green station. Recently some pubs have been getting some very rough patrons. Obviously not locals!
  • Peoples attitude. Going shopping is like Destruction Derby in Sainsburys. Parking is terrible. The whole area is to become a Resident Only Parking" area soon.
  • The worst thing is that there are far too many pizza-pasta places.
  • Pretty much dead after 11pm
  • posh buggies
