Mapping Londoners: Born in Romania

At the time of the last census in 2011 there were 45,000 Romanian-born people living in London. This figure may now be higher after restrictions on Romanians coming to the UK were lifted in January 2014, some 7 years after the country joined the EU.

The last census data show Romanians concentrated in North London, especially in Brent, with another large community in Newham.

One unhappy statistic is the number of Romanians sleeping rough, which has doubled between 2014 and 2015 to 1,388 according to the Combined Homelessness and Information Network.
