Cheapest areas to rent a house in London

If you're moving to London and wondering if you can get affordable rent there, you've come to the right place. Here are three cheapest areas to rent a house in London plus what they have to offer.

Ponders End

Being a large residential district in north of London, you can get a decent flat or house to rent with a parking space for about £1,000 per month (pm) if you poke around. If you don't own a car, getting to places is still easy with trains on half-hourly service to London Liverpool Street and Hertford East.
Ponders End is only minutes away from Brimsdown, Enfield Highway, Enfield Town, Bush Hill Park, and Chingford. Parks, shops, and spas are easy to get to.

Hackney Wick

Hackney Wick is a great place to rent a house for people who enjoy walking or cycling. You can also go hiking and experience the hidden outskirts. To get around London, there's the Hackney Wick railway station serving trains to Stratford, Richmond, and Clapham Junction.
If you don't mind a warehouse flat, sharing space with 2 or 3 other people, you can get a spacious room for less than £400 pm on Hackney Wick.


A one bedroom flat in Erith starts from £800 pm, while a two-bedroom is usually around £1,100 pm. Plenty of bargains available if you willing to put the time contacting private owners instead of agents.
Located on the south bank of River Thames, Erith provides many Promenades where you can take a leisurely walk to wind down after a long day of work. Go for riverside flats if strolling along a waterfront is your thing.
