The area is quite upmarket due to the proximity to London Bridge and the Shard.

My area is generally quitw safe in the daytime but during the nighttime, there are quite a lot of homeless people around the area and pubs are nearby. This, as a woman, makes me feel unsafe at night as I have been exposed to threatening behaviours while walking home from tube stations. The area is quite upmarket due to the proximity to London Bridge and the Shard. Due to lack of playground facilities it may be hard for some families with children, but there is green space around for dog owners to use if wished - just a bit unsafe.

Transport

The buses in the area are frequent, London Bridge station, which has both Jubilee and Northern lines, is 10 minutes walk, Borough station is a 3 minute walkand has the Northern line, therefore I think transport in my area is generally good. The tube gets quite crowded during rush hour and the carriages are always quite grimy but on the whole it's a decent commute.

Community

There is limited parking availabilty on the streets, there is quite a lot of traffic noise (sirens especially) and sometimes there is loud antisocial behaviour which disrupts sleep (people screaming in the street) Renters mostly live in the area as house prices in this area are high and the area has a high concentration of students due to it being near King's College London. There are not a lot of families around - mostly couples or couples with very young children (toddlers)

Amenities

There are a huge range of restaurants, with Borough Market being a stone's throw away, fast food outlets e.g. kfc being very nearby and lots of street stalls nearby too. There are quite a few open spaces - one near southwark bridge road, one on borough high street and tabbard gardens but I do not regularly frequent these as they are seen to be "dodgy" and be crime hotspots. There are quite a few pubs nearby which are always quite busy. Prices are also reasonable. There are many supermarkets nearby although there is a lack of large ones. There is a post office that is quite busy usually, and I am very close to both Borough Market tube station and London Bridge station. Borough market is always popular, there is a particular falafel stand that is popular near London Bridge due to its quality and cheap price (£3.5 for a wrap) and Dover Castle, a pub, is very popular among students for their cheap drinks.. There is a gym, post office, pharmacy etc. all very close so I do not think any amneties are missing. However, it would be nice if the open spaces were places not so associated with crime and drug use.

Life near Borough Market!

It’s a really great atmosphere, especially with Borough Market being so close by. It’s also surprisingly safe, because the streets are never empty.

Transport

Super convenient location because London Bridge tube and train station are just nearby. There’s a lot of buses that run through the area and it’s easy to get to the north side of the river using buses.

Community

It’s nice that it’s so busy but it can get noisy on Friday and Saturday nights since there’s pubs in the area. King’s College London Guy’s Campus is nearby so there’s usually students around, but most of them don’t live nearby as it’s an expensive area.

Amenities

Borough Market is super close by and it’s so nice to walk there to buy nice groceries or eat out! There’s a lot of good restaurants at Borough Market and it’s still expanding. There’s a mix of small and large supermarkets around and lots of cafes too.
