Lovely area with amazing views

I love the atmosphere of my area, it is definitely more upmarket than other areas in Greenwich and offers beautiful views of London and the O2. I would say the area is suitable for pets as there are lots of places to walk them by the river and the woodland areas. Also I would say that it's very suitable for children to live here also as there's a lot of services offered for kids nearby.

Transport

North Greenwich tube and bus station is nearby and has reliable connections to central, East and further south of London. The nearest train station is Charlton and the nearest DLR is cutty sark, which also isn't far. There's a lot of cycle paths and walking paths too. There are many buses that are regular and reliable, but it can be a hassle getting to other areas of London such as West London because there aren't any direct connections.

Community

My area is nice and quiet and I have respectful neighbours who are mainly young professionals who are renting their apartments. There doesn't seem to be a lot of antisocial behaviour and the area is kept very clean. Parking, however, is hard to come by and can be very expensive in my area which isn't good for when I have people visit me.

Amenities

There aren't a lot of local shops near me but there is the O2 arena which has a shopping outlet and a variety of restaurants. Also there are a few big retail parks just a stones throw away that have all the supermarkets and high street shops. I have a big IKEA and cinema around the corner from my apartment too. Everything is so close by that I don't need to travel to other areas for anything. There are lots of open spaces around my area where people go to exercise with amazing views of the river Thames and canary wharf, but there's not alot of parks or actual green spaces nearby.

I can safely call it one of the best areas in London

I have lived in London since my early childhood, and while I've been living around the Greenwich area for a significant number of years, I can safely call it one of the bestareas in London, full of wonderful things to do, beautiful parks, and scenery, and easy links of transport through the veins of London

Transport

You can, in essence walk everywhere you need to and get everything you'd reasonably want to do, this is more prevalent in areas of London with smaller numbers next to their 'SE's. I think this city does have a close contender for the best transport links in the world, except for maybe some Japanese cities, but certainly one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing, and while it can be late occasionally, it's not usually the fault of the transport system itself, rather accidents on the road, covid restrictions, and etc

Community

I definitely appreciate the sense of community in the area, with a lot of people staying put around the area, and not having to see new faces every time you say hello to your neighbours. There are definitely a lot of homeowners around the area, including my wife, and I, and I would say the area needs more cleaning, but that's just another letter to the local council to add to the pile.

Amenities

Oh there's plenty of wonderful old style pubs around the area, and a lot of attractions that aren't running at the moment, from the royal observatory, to the Cutty Sark, the O2 arena, and not to forget the GPE park that occasionally will make you forget you live in such a hustling bustling city. As I said there's plenty of pubs around the area, and a wide range of restaurants to eat at, loads of shops as well, as well as loads of plenty of great escapes from the hubbub of North Greenwich and nearby industrial estates

Our Woolwich area - disappointing to live in

It's not very trendy, some people might view it as not very safe (even though so far no incidents). You can smell weed on the street at times, so people like to have fun indoors I guess. I think the general look of it is rather untidy and not very clean and I don't like kids to wonder around too much. Not a park in less than half a mile either, so more green spaces would be great.

Transport

Plenty of buses, no tube, DLR if you walk a mile to Woolwich (that would be nice to have nearby since it connects to the city easily). Buses seem pretty regular, but there are traffic jams from time to time because there are a lot of parked cars and some places are too narrow.

Community

I'd say it's a mix of both renters and owners. Lots of families with young kids. Not much noise going on, as far as I could hear only one house across the street has had parties so far. I like the fact that it's free parking on our street so we don't need to worry about paying a permit.

Amenities

There are plenty of local small shops like fish and chips and the like, and also a Co op. Not many places that you can sit outside to eat or drink, though. Mostly takeaways of all cuisines.

I’d recommend the area as it’s cheaper to live and close to main attractions aswell.
