This map shows the parts of London that love their neighbourhoods most

For the past two months you've been showing your favourite local spots some love in our Love London Awards.

As thousands of shout-outs poured in, we got a glimpse of which areas of London were more open to public displays of affection for their best pubs, restaurants, cafés, shops and cultural venues. 

With only a few days left until voting closes, we've taken a peek at the who's saying what (and where) and have found the most loved areas of London, based on your amount of votes. 

More loved than a Pomeranian puppy and top of the table is: Crouch End and Hornsey! Hackney, Brixton and Ealing also made the top ten, while the most neglected neighbourhoods include Barking and Dagenham, Kew and Stockwell. Ouch.

Take a look at our heatmap above that shows where the most local love is being shown across London.

Is your neighbourhood not getting the attention it deserves? Cast your vote here before it's too late. 

Voting for the Love London Awards closes at midnight on October 31.

Check out London's most loved coffee shops – as voted for by you in last year's Love London Awards

How about we ask the wealthier than wealthy residents of these amazing British London Boroughs to foot the bill for their "lovely" infrastructure and divert the resources to all the disabled people literally dying from benefit cuts? Seriously lets get them to pay for their own policing, health services, parks, street maintenance, developments etc. and completely stop paying for it from public funds? Thats got to be in the many billions as they get a disproportionately high level of investment compared to the rest of the country. Still tax them the same but don't invest where investment is not needed. they should be honoured to pay for the privilege to reside in such sought after places and they have clearly benefitted so greatly from this country.

Isn't this just a map of which areas people live in who buy Time Out?

Isn't time out free?

The areas on the map with hearts seem to coincide with areas that have more recently undergone, or are undergoing, gentrification. Does this suggest we are in love with gentrification?

Penge should be recognised as an independent urban area, which it is, instead of being lumped with Crystal Palace.
