I like that the area is quiet and lovely place to return to after a long day's work.
I like that the area is quiet and lovely place to return to after a long day's work. There area a few restaurants with not much nightlife as this would be mostly in central London. It is convenient and ideal for families with children and young married couples. There are many upcoming new-builts. It's the kind of place where you know you will be able to settle comfortably and not have to worry about noise and safety.
SE16 is close to the Canada Water station which happens to be on the Jubilee line and Overground line. The station can get crowded during rush hour, but train come on time mostly. It is also within walking distance to Bermondsey and Surrey Quays stations. There are many buses around the area though traffic on the road can sometimes mean buses are also stuck even though there are separate bus lanes. Recently the cycleway in the area going into central London has been completed and a lot more are using bicycles instead of public transport.
Residents here are diverse and the area is peaceful and close to Central London. Mostly families and working professionals live in the area given its ideal location close to Canary Wharf and London Bridge. Relatively safe area though we have heard of the occasional pick-pockets. Noise level is low given it is a very quiet residential area.
Surrey Quays shopping centre is 5 mins away with many shops including clothing and fashion, Tesco Extra, the Range, phone repairs, Halifax and HSBC Bank branches. There's Decathlon near the shopping complex which is very convenient and popular for the local community to get sports equipment and attire. There's also a free public library close to the tube station. Restaurants in the area are not limited. There's a variety of good Italian, British, Vietnamese and Chinese restaurants within close vicinity of one another, and many cafes and pubs open for brunches or wholesome Sunday roasts. There's also a free gym and swimming pool for residents in the area during Fridays (all day), Saturdays and Sundays (after 2pm). There is also a huge park behind the neighborhood that has ping pong tables, tennis courts, playground for children and a nice running path. Residents here are diverse and the area is peaceful and close to Central London.
Bermondsey is my favourite!
I love this area and I always suggest it to my friends. We have 2 beautiful park ideal for walks, and a few smaller green areas perfect for a quick dog walk in the evening. It’s not very trendy, however a short walk toward tower bridge takes you to the arches, with multiple pubs.
Super happy with the transport links - bus no 1 takes me all the way to central London and Oxford street, jubilee line is just 10 mins walk. If I need to get in other direction and don’t feel like catching a tube, there are multiple bus lines to choose on the old kent road.
We never struggle with parking availability on our road, however it can be a little tricky to park in the area as all the spots are permit only. It was never an issue for me since I prefer to walk and not drive. I heard about some anti social behaviours and sometimes hear a police siren, but never on my street. Only issue would be the occasional dog waste not picked up by the dog owners. My neighbours are mostly elderly house owners, who are very friendly.
The selection of shops is amazing, I very rarely need to get out of Bermondsey for my essentials. Just 2 mins always from my place I have Tesco and Iceland, and 2 international food markets. If I need to make bigger shopping, 10-15 mins walk there’s Asda, another Tesco and Lidl. When it comes to the restaurants, I’ve never really been to any in the area, but the pub selection is rather spectacular!
It a great deal of need of regeneration and development

Very poor, only one train line which gets you into London and most weekend there are engineering works so you a more less stranded for transport. Buses are a waste of time, living so close to central London you will be lucky to find a bus to take to to London Bridge or anywhere else
Run down area, full of empty wear houses. Walk way from south bermondsey station is not safe and looks tired
Very little range of anything decent in the area, shops range from chicken shops, Greg’s, dodgy second hand phone shops. No restaurants, no coffee shops, nothing decent in the area
I love how artistic the area is, is actually very pretty
