London Centric - 2011 Census - Commuting stats

Postby anonymousblackfg » Thu Jan 31, 2013 13:43 pm

Well worth a read, amazing how well Hackney are doing, south western london is good, possibly due to no tube lines and affluent MAMILS

No real shocker than Bexley is down the other end. I assume most people might consider it too far to central London or something (assuming most would do that route, rather than other shorter journeys).

Does mean my riding is more fraught in my home town than in central London - too few of us about!

Mrs EKE lives in Islington and works in Hackney, about 2.5 miles away. 90% of the time she drives.

I am disappoint.

All turned into a lovely interactive map on the Grauniad website.
