London landlords looking to make a killing in real estate should avoid the city center and head for the suburbs—that is, if they’re not already too late.

Such is the picture to emerge from London’s latest property figures, which suggest that the city’s notoriously expensive inner west may have peaked, while prices in humdrum suburbs are going through the roof. The new figures, shown in a set of visualizations by data scientist Jay Patani, refine the picture of a city being turned inside out, with the poorer residents that once dominated the inner city being scattered to the outer districts.
