Crystal Palace has been named the best place to live in London by The Sunday Times.

The list highlighted the south London neighbourhood’s community spirit and fascinating history when naming it the best place to live in the capital.

With the average house price coming in at £526,000, it was also the cheapest option on the list for potential homeowners.

We’ve found a stylish and modern two-bedroom flat in the area known as “Four Boroughs” for £400,000, for house hunters.
