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.

SE1 - affordable, safe and fun!

Like- transport, things to do around us, parks, bars, proximity to Tower bridge. Dislikes- seems colder in winter than areas away from the river. Train noise levels can go up sometimes depending on the day of week and the age of the train itself. The area is mostly trendy with a lot of warehouse conversions. Generally in good livable condition. Plenty of parks and open areas for children and pets. Safety- it does have a few dodgy pockets near Borough High Street so need to be careful in the dark. Also the tunnels can be scary at night if you are walking alone.

Transport

London Bridge tube station is a short walk away and also has great connections to other train services including trading to Gatwick airport. Buses run regularly on Tooley street and there is one more entrance to London bridge station from this Street. Tube station gets particularly busy during peak hour but nonetheless no major issues. Thameslink trains have their fair share of delays but it's always convenient as long as you allow for this. Plenty of night buses available as will in this area.

Community

A lot of renters- mostly young professionals so we never get to see any trouble makers. Street parking is available as long as you organise your permit. There is very little traffic noise; although a slight rumble of nearby trains cannot be ignored. The noisiest establishment near us is a skate park. No major issue with the skate park- just teens being teens- loud!

Amenities

We are only a five minute walk to Bermondsy Street- full of bars, cafes, pubs, restaurants and quaint grocery shops. There are also the usual grocery stores like Tesco, Sainsbury's and M&S on Tooley Street about 5 mins away. Borough Market is also only a short walk away.

In need of regeneration as it’s very dirty and not trendy at all

In need of regeneration as it’s very dirty and not trendy at all. We are in Southwark but the area is very shabby and not well maintained. Not safe area.

Transport

Lack of nearby tube station makes it difficult to commute anywhere and especially at late night. The nearest station is an overground which isn’t convenient to use due to its timings.

Community

Bad aspects are the bad neighbours who are very rude and just today I saw a police van come to take some teen away as they had stolen something. The kids next door fire firework from their balcony that hits our building! No good aspects to discuss !

Amenities

Immediately within my building, the quality of restaurants, shops is below average. Needs a massive make over! Open spaces aren’t kept clean and there aren’t that many nice opening spaces near the property. Would want to see more green and clean space. High end stores are missing as they are quite far (boots, H&M, etc)
