SE11 - up and coming, lively and inviting

I most like the transport links, both Tube and bus, and the availability of amenities. There's a good number of local pubs and restaurants, great supermarkets in walking distance (Tesco's, Sainsbury's, Lidl, Nisa Local, to name a few) and the parks are lovely and well kept. SE11 seems to be up and coming, and there's a sense of vitality in the area.

Transport

Transport links are SE11's best kept secret - it's squarely in Zone 2 with links into the centre of London. Oval and Kennington are both on the Northern Line, which adds the benefit of Night Tube service. One more stop from Oval is Stockwell, which will get you on the Victoria line, and Elephant & Castle and its Bakerloo service is a stop away from Kennington. Oval and Kennington both have escalators or lifts, making them fairly accessible. Buses are readily available, and also have excellent connections into the city centre. The Northern line is one of the more reliable and regular lines, and the stations are clean with minimal traffic. There can be some congestion around rush hour, as SE11 is a popular place for commuters.

Community

My street can attract some noise, as it's primarily made up of council houses. Our council house block is around 70% families and 30% renters, as told by our agency, but there's generally a good community spirit. Many families seem close and are chatty. Bin collections are fairly regular, and there always seems to be empty parking spots in the spaces near the flat blocks. There is some anti-social behaviour, and police have knocked at our door once or twice to warn about gang behaviour, especially once as they'd found a knife around the flat block.

Amenities

One of London's up and coming areas for young professionals and families alike, SE11 has everything you'd need, from parks to local shops to a Saturday farmer's market to excellent biking and transport links. Popular spots include Kennington Park, with its dog-friendly spaces and gem of a pizza and ice cream place in the centre, and any number of the classic pubs by the Tube stops and along the wide streets. Local favourites include the Old Red Lion, The White Bear, and always good for a tour and tasting is the Beefeater Distillery. SE11 is ideally place by the Imperial War Museum and the Thames, and has all the excitement and opportunity of a city centre with much more space and local charm.

Transport

Being central London, and it's basically as good as you're going to get! Lambeth North is incredibly close by, and if you don't feel like the underground; the bus system is also great, and there's essentially a bus every couple of minutes, although it does get a bit frustrating when there's a chokepoint somewhere along the way, and basically every bus starts to be late. Since covid, public transport has been a little bit more worrying, especially with how packed the underground can be, especially during rush hours, and ESPECIALLY during the weekends, but hey I guess it's more of a perception thing now compared to how it used to be before.

Community

Whilst I rent myself, a lot of my neighbours seem to own their houses, and some of them are older folk that have lived there for a number of years.

Amenities

Being so close to central London, SE11 seems absolutely brilliant to me if you can afford to live in this area. With plenty of parks incredibly near by, meaning you don't need to spend a single cent, but if you do; there's plenty to choose from! Plenty of restaurants and pub around the area, especially really lovely ones on the dock, like the Tamesis Dock, and plenty of touristic attractions for your loved ones coming on holiday (maybe not in 2020), like the London eye not a 15 minute walk away.

could do with a bit of regeneration

could do with a bit of regeneration actually, looking a bit shabby. otherwise it seems safe and friendly

Transport

good transport links, e.g. bus, tube, overground, cycle routes. reliable regular, clean, traffic etc.

Community

the leaves on the street don't get swept up often enough, sorry. traffic is a bit busy - mostly renters, some students

Amenities

Great quality range and quality of local shops, restaurants, bars & open spaces . Could use a barbers.
