Most popular cheap studio flats for rent in London

Stop…

Look around. Double-decker buses, Kings and Queens, black cabs, and blue bobbies (policemen). Pints down the pub, bustling markets, gigs, galleries, Victorian theatres, and breathless football.

Yep, London is Lively, it’s Loud, and it’s On. The rent is high and so is the price of a pint. But there is tons of affordable fun to be had.

Studio living on a budget? You won't be living centrally. But the Underground is your (sweaty) friend, and a commute is all part of daily life. There are some way cool places outside the center too.

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