Nice affordable area at 10 mins from Central London

I've never felt unsafe in the area, even if I know in the past it had quite a reputation. It's a trafficked area, with not many private gardens so most pets live indoors where it's safer to be. This help keep the noise down, though, as you rarely hear barks.

Transport

There are two train stations at easy reach from the high street: Lewisham Station and Ladywell. From Lewisham Station, trains from and to London main stations are plenty all throughout the day. There is also the DLR, which brings you quickly to Canary Wharf. Buses, too, are plenty. Lewisham is in zone 2 so it takes 10 mins to reach London Bridge and 20 to Cannon Street and Victoria.

Community

An extensive, multi-tiered car park can be found at the shopping centre, and another small one with electric car charging points is situated just next to it (this latest one is currently being used as a Covid testing centre, though). Bins are emptyed nearly daily but it depends on the area you live in. The area is, for the most part, residential so it's quiet enough.

Amenities

Lewisham (SE13) has everything people living in the area need to live comfortably. There is a small but well furnished shopping centre which includes a Sainsburys', Argos, M&S, WH Smith and post office, Boots and other shops. It's at a 5 mins walk from the main train station. In the area there is also a big Tesco, a Lidl and not too far away also an Aldi. Near the station there is a well equipped sports centre with a pool and gym classes, which also skirts a small conservation area where a river passes through and green spaces can be enjoyed. At a 30 mins walk you can reach Greenwich and it's beautiful parks and observatory. Other well kept parks - at an easy to reach distance - are scattered around the area as well. The high street sees also a public library and other well known brands, as well as one of the best fresh vegetables street markets in London. Pubs, restaurants and cafes abound, too. What's missing is a cinema or theatre, which I think is being built now or will be soon. There isn't a bookshop, unfortunately, but there is a Waterstones in Blackheath.

A wonderful place to call home.

Although, I don't drive, several friends of mine have complemented the area on how easy it is to find parking due its “openness”.

Transport

Transport in the area is satisfactory, just like other areas in London buses being widely available, with our local station Crofton Park also close by. The buses are relatively consistent arriving on time and are adequately clean.

Community

Due to the large number of communal areas, the area has a great sense of community and a bubbling atmosphere, as such anti-social behaviour is uncommon; the area composed of a nice mix of owner families and renting couples My only critique is that the area can get somewhat noisy on busy days even from the comfort of your home.

Amenities

The area is fantastic, especially if you have children. Less than 10 mins apart is an adventure play ground, community centre and playground, a bit further out and you have a CO-OP, clothing store and health care trust. The play ground are the community highlight, the local children playing there while the congregate at the community centre.

Beautiful house but strong lack of community

If you have children I would recommend this area as it is quite quiet but if you have a dog I would not recommend as there is not a lot of green area for walking the animals

Transport

There are no stations within my immediate vicinity. But there are a few busses it is a limited selection. It would be best to catch a bus then switch later or get off at your desired station

Community

It is quite a boring area not a lot is going on and the community is essentially non-existent. If you travel out a bit further there are a lot of restaurants with a wide variety

Amenities

To be honest there are not a lot of good stores near my house or anything useful. They all require quite a long walk but it’s too short to just take the car which makes it quite frustrating. There are a few small green areas
