Considering moving to Ruislip with a toddler and a newborn (both girls). Could anybody tell me more about the area? Pros/cons with children, pros/cons for schools, pros/cons about amenities and pros/cons about different areas in Ruislip? And just general information about what it's like to live there?
I love Ruislip - great safe area for families with excellent transport links and easy commute into Central London. There is a good High Street with a mixture of independent shops, cafes and decent chains - Waitrose, M&S etc.
Personally, I would aim for North Ruislip, West Ruislip or parts of Ruislip Manor although these are more expensive. I would avoid Ruislip Gardens and most of South Ruislip as these are not quite so nice and the schools are not as desirable. Have you considered Ickenham?
