On this story

British graduates today are saddled with debt and have starting salaries below those of the pre-recession cohort. To make matters worse, those who secure a highly sought-after job in central London will struggle to find an affordable room to rent unless they move out to the suburbs and take on a lengthy commute.

Find out how affordable different properties are at different salary levels across London using the interactive map below, which was made using data provided by Hometrack.

The map is based on rent per bedroom, not the cost of renting the whole property, so a one bedroom flat would typically be the most expensive option.
