The study looked at how welcome residents felt in their borough, the accessibility of community activities and how much time is spent socialising with neighbours.

Barnet, Merton, Kensington, and Chelsea rounded up the top five friendliest spots.

At the other end of the scale was Hounslow, Richmond, Newham, and Islington, with Hammersmith and Fulham being found to be the least friendly of the 32 boroughs in London.

So what do residents love about Greenwich? According to the Standard, they cited feeling safe and described it as 'beautiful'.

One said: "It's very quiet and our neighbours are very friendly, we help each other every day."

The borough boasts stunning views, royal heritage and, of course, is the home of time, where Eastern and Western hemispheres meet.

It's also home to the Meridian Line, Cutty Sark, the Royal Observatory, the National Maritime Museum, the Old Royal Naval College including the fabulous Painted Hall, London's cable car, Greenwich Market, Greenwich Park and The O2 arena.
