If you’re working in London in the areas of Canary Wharf or Liverpool Street then look no further! If you want great transport, to be close to the action to get a bit more value-for-money, we’ve weighed up all the options here for you so you don’t have to! So undo that top, button, kick off your shoes and check out all the ground work Movebubble has done for you.

If you don't work in banking centres of London, check where to live in London if you're a young professional or the coolest places to live in London for some great tips.

Make sure you watch out for agency fees! They can be high in the capital.



Limehouse is our first stop and it falls on the Docklands Light Railway in the northern bank of the Thames River, in the borough of Tower Hamlets.

The DLR takes you directly to Canary Wharf while Liverpool Street is one simple stop away. The property we found was all of a modern style with studios available from around £900pcm and one bedroomed flats will set you back £1000 a month. Add £250 onto that to find plush, trendy, excellently presented flats.

Greenwich Town in the Royal Borough of Greenwich is arguably London’s most historical and cultural borough. There’s plenty of sites to see if you have any visitors, including the Cutty Sark and the Greenwich Maritime Museum - a National Heritage site.

The park, market and "film-set" impressive buildings (Greenwich is used in almost every hollywood film when grandeur is called for, and was heavily featured in the recent Les Miserables film, to the annoyance of the French).

The area was the birthplace of many historical figures from the Viking age through to the Edwardian age. This is well represented in the area by the eclectic mix of buildings.

Train lines take you to Central London in minutes, and the DLR takes you direct to Canary Warf and Bank. You can find studios for as little as £750 and two bedroomed flats from around £1500

Bow takes you a little closer to the centre of The City and is another town served by the DLR line and links up to the underground on the District and Hammersmith & City lines. The area, found in the Tower Hamlets borough, underwent a serious facelift before the 2012 games and the Olympic Park is within a javelin-throwers distance away! Victorian and Georgian property can be found in the area with converted one bedroomed flats starting at £1000 pcm.



Finally, closer again to the city centre is Aldgate where studio flats will set you back £1000 pcm and nicely presented, compact flats - perfect for couples will cost around £1350.

Aldgate is served by Aldgate Tube and Tower Hill stops with Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Circle lines all options on the tube. With Liverpool Street just a stop away and Charing Cross 2.3 miles away, Aldgate falls perfectly for those looking to work hard and enjoy everything the big smoke (London!) has to offer.
