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.
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.
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)
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.
It's defo an excellent place to live if you've got the ££ to fork ou
It's defo an excellent place to live if you've got the ££ to fork out, I don't know if I'd live here unless I was sharing the costs with someone, but it's nice to have so many attractions so close by, even if COVID did kinda put a stop to it this year, but luckily I've been living in this are of London for a fair bit, so I know that it's bound to get better (though hopefully everyone doesn't move out of London by the time this whole thing blows over).
I used to switch busses at rush hour before Covid, but ever since.. It's just been bus full, bus full, bus full, constantly! So I've invested in a bike, and have just been scooting around town ever since. The cycle routes are brilliant, and the cycle superhighways really are pretty awesome once you start using them, not something you'd care about if you weren't a cyclist. Some cycle routes are seperated from the road with ballards and the like, and it gives you some nice peace of mind that you won't get run over by some half awake businessman in a beemer in the morning, but others are not, which is where you often need to keep an eye for your fellow driver (and your fellow cyclist). Overall probably the best way to get around London, definitely the fastest, and most definitely the healthiest!
Lots of restaurants nearby, and a whole load of delivery apps will get it to you pretty quick so definitely a nice place to be if you're too lazy to cook like me! It's a pretty nice area to be on, me and my 3 housemates definitely enjoy it, and being that I occasionally WFH it definitely hasn't disappointing to not have to leave the house at 7.30 each day.
Oh man where do I begin! There's just no end to the amount of excellent, and often PACKED restaurants around south bank , and especially along the Thames, nightlife could definitely do with some improvement on this side of town, but there's so many epic markets and shops to visit in the day like the Maltby, and Borough that are a pretty short walk away that it more than makes up for it!
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.
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.
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 !
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)
alot of dinning places as pubs
