Data from the Valuation Office Agency, the body that advises the government on property values, shows the highest prices in the capital are in Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster, with the City close behind.

Camden and Islington have prices in excess of £1,400 and there is a ring of inner London boroughs, from Hackney in the north east to Hammersmith in the west and Lambeth in the south where monthly rents are still above £1,200.

Religious Faith in London: Sikhs

Just over 1% of Londoners identify themselves as Sikhs, that’s around 100,000 people.

They are heavily concentrated in Hillingdon and Hounslow with significant numbers in Ealing as well. The Sikh community is highly focused on these 3 West London boroughs and there are no Sikhs registered as living in neighbouring  Hammersmith and Fulham.

On the opposite side of London Redbridge and Barking and Dagenham also have established Sikh communities.

Religions sikhs

The proportion of Sikhs in the capital has been largely unchanged for the past 10 years, according to the National Office for Statistics. In the same time there has been a growth in the number of people who say they have no belief but, as reported by Urbs, London is still the most religious region of Britain.
