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!
it is a remarkable place to call your home
If you’re a working professional or a student who needs to commute into Central London, then Kennington’s good transport links will make this the ideal place for you. If you enjoy dining out and experiencing new cuisines. Kennington Park is a large, green space with historic trees, a flower garden, open area for wildlife, and a popular café.
Kennington is bordered on the north by Lambeth, on the east by Camberwell, on the south by Brixton, and on the west by Vauxhall.Kennington does not have its own train station but it is only one stop on the tube away from Waterloo where you can catch National Rail Services from.There is a good selection of outstanding Ofsted rated schools in Kennington.
Cultural experiences are easy to find here as there are several theaters, art galleries, and music venues. There are a few cinema houses that show everything from blockbusters to small art films.

Transport links are good, I think there can be more bike lanes to encourage fewer people to drive if possible
I live in a very noisey street for traffic (both cars and foot) however there are a lot of amenities nearby
Good selection of different cuisines to try out and all in one area! Lovely open spaces in the summer and indoor options for the winter
I like the privacy and the abundance of shops and restaurant in the streets, I consider it up market
