Trying to find somewhere cheap to rent in London? Yeah, good luck with that. To help you in your impossible quest, Thrillist has made a tube rent map, which shows the average rent prices for one-bed flats within one kilometre of each station on the Underground. And it's as depressing as you'd expect.
If you've got big bucks to spend, you can rent a one-bed in Hyde Park Corner for £2,920 – because who hasn't got nearly three grand to spend on rent every month? Depressingly, rent prices seem to be pretty steep even if you're way out at the end of the line, as demonstrated by the fact that a one-bed in Morden is fetching a clean £1,024pcm.
The cheapest it gets is a one-bed flat in Hatton Cross, which is practically a steal at £324pcm. Sure, being that close to Heathrow means you'll probably be driven mad by the incessant sounds of aeroplanes flying overhead, but at least you've got easy access to the airport if you want to squander all that rent money you saved on holidays instead.
Think it can't get any worse? You could be paying £550pcm for a tent in someone's living room.Share the story
