I am very fond of the rejuvenation projects ongoing in the area, it definitely looks needed with some buildings and such being extremely run down.

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).

Transport

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!

Community

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.

Amenities

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!

I am very fond of the rejuvenation projects ongoing in the area, it definitely looks needed with some buildings and such being extremely run down. There always seems to be homeless people around which is always sad to see, it would be nice to see more done for these people in need. The traffic in the area can be quite threatening, traffic systems should be simplified to reduce congestion and also speed cameras introduced as there is always speeding drivers around Elephant and Castle, it would also be nice to see investment into other areas such as Peckham, not only E&C.

Transport

Living in Elephant & Castle the transport links are second to none, having the Tube Station which has both the Bakerloo line and Northern line available for transport to areas north of the Thames, The Elephant & Castle Train Station has excellent links to South East London in very short journeys. Waterloo Station & Vauxhall Station offer excellent links to Southwest London as well as links to the South of England. Bus links are excellent also at Elephant & Castle with many buses having E&C as their starting/finishing destination

Community

Street Parking tends to be very difficult with limited spaces available, of which free spaces are almost always used. Central Elephant & Castle tends to be a fairly noisy and busy place to be but this seems to ease down significantly at night.

Amenities

There are many popular shops around however around Elephant & Castle area, the closing of the Elephant Shopping Centre has seen the disappearance of small businesses in the area.

It's a great area and has been under some regeneration which seems to be making it better. It's a lively area but not overly noisy and be calm and quiet at some times too. it is definitely suitable for children and pets and i think it is safe.

Transport

The transport links are plentiful, with buses, bikes, trains, tubes , cabs and walking all being right there for you. The roads can be quite busy at certain times but not enough to worry. the area is very clean for London too.

Community

Parking is not the easiest, but you expect that in London living and don't really need a car. /the main road can be noisy and busy bout only really during the daytime. There is a real mix of people on our road, which is what makes us love it.

Amenities

I live in waterloo and the shopping there is great and then also so accessible to the shops in town. the green spaces are a plenty along with lots of outdoor space. there are enough local food places to never cook each moth if you didn't want to. the Southbank is a great place to wander and also relax when it is quieter. I don;t think much is missing just maybe some more high street shopping?
