Homes in just 10 London boroughs are worth more than in Wales, Scotland and N Ireland combined…
Homes in just 10 London boroughs are worth as much as the entire housing stock in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland combined. That’s the startling evidence from a new study by real estate adviser Savills.
In its annual Valuing Britain analysis, the property group found that the nation’s housing wealth is becoming increasingly concentrated in the south-east; particularly within London.
For example, the town of Elmbridge is home to just 131,000 people, but its housing stock is now worth more than all the homes in Glasgow, Scotland’s biggest city.
In just 10 London boroughs, property is worth more than £550 billion, so we’ve been taking a look at some of the valuable homes for sale.

30 odd years ago I lived in Talgarth road West Kensington, before getting a transfer through my work to Devon, the houses where horrible with very small back yards that backed on to the underground, plus we had the A4 at the front , leading onto the M4 just up the road at Hammersmith Broadway, and above us we had the flight path to heathrow, recently I was passing through the area with my son and took a look at the old house it had iron bars on the basement windows, and the door had an iron gate in front of the door made up with 1 inch bars, it looked more like a prison, and yet they are asking over one million pounds for these places now, its like says,
