Islington ranked the highest London borough, closely followed by Tower Hamlets, Hammersmith & Fulham and Southwark
Research from the Sunday Times has ranked four London boroughs amongst the Top 20 locations to live in the UK for recent graduates.
These areas include Islington, which ranked 9th, Tower Hamlets 12th, Hammersmith & Fulham 13th and Southwark 18th.
The research looked into the average rent for a two-bedroom property, the median salary and the number of business births in the areas and ranked them accordingly.
Islington continues to attract the nation’s budding young professionals. The borough boasts great transport links, with the Victoria and Northern lines running directly through the area and offering swift connections to the City and the Silicon roundabout.
The area is also home to a booming nightlife, with gig venue and club Scala appealing to many of the capital’s young hipsters.
Tower Hamlets has also experienced huge regeneration, with the rise of areas such as Bow and Mile End helping the borough become a cultural and artisanal hotspot. Cafés such as Muxima on Roman Road in Bow and Bethnal Green’s booming Broadway Market also provide residents an array of weekend activities, while the Whitechapel and Four Corners galleries also give great alternatives to the Tate Modern and the Barbican.
A recent report published by the Centre for Cities think tank also showed that 22% of all UK graduates had moved to London within six months of receiving their degree.
