Most popular cheap flats for rent in London

Renting? London? Cor blimey – it’s expensive, innit!...

Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, The ol' Baked Bean (The Queen) ... this city is the icon of icons. There's always something to see and do.

Rent prices in Central London will make your eyes water more than chopped onions. So save yourself some bees and honey (money) –look to the leafy suburbs.

But hey, the Underground is your (sweaty) friend. And wherever you live, the daily commute is part and parcel of life. Some of the coolest spots are outside Central London anyway.

Yes – I am looking for a popular (cheap) flat for rent in London – so I can soak it up in the Big Smoke. Spotahome me now:
