However, being so central, it is a very walkable area where the streets are clean and the environment is welcoming

I love the amenities in the area: the number of supermarkets, local convenience stores and bars in the area have been such a blessing. There could be more restaurants near Southwark however. The high incidence of anti-social behaviour is also rather off-putting.

Transport

I live in between Southwark (jubilee) and Borough (northern), these two train lines are rather convenient to get to just about anywhere in London. Again, it helps that this area is quite centrally located. The nearest bus station with the most number of buses is, however, a walk away. There is also a lack of night buses which is a shame

Community

Many university students live in my area so the area is bustling all throughout the day. The area is rather clean, there is not much traffic noise and there are adequate parking spaces. There are a high number of cases of anti-social behaviour with phone mugging and catcalling being a norm.

Amenities

In my area of SE1, there is a local supermarket (Co-op, Sainsburys, Tesco) almost at every corner- extremely convenient and a huge plus for residents in the area. On top of this, there are numerous post offices, 24 hour convenience stores, and bars. One of the more popular local areas would be Borough for the famous Borough Market where patrons buy extremely fresh produce, an array of all kinds of cheese and of course, a takeaway box of British Fish n Chips. Walking a little bit past the market would also bring you to an outdoor seating area in London Riverside, close to the River Thames, giving you a marvellous view of Tower Bridge. The area is sadly lacking in large green spaces. However, being so central, it is a very walkable area where the streets are clean and the environment is welcoming so it is still an area that encourages people to get outside despite the lack of a park, for instance. It would also be great if the area could have more asian supermarkets. The one i currently know of in the area is Oseyo in Waterloo, however, it would be nice if there could be more in the area, especially since London is such a diverse city!

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.

The area is great really, but parking is a problem

The area is great really, but parking is a problem

Transport

Transport as said is good, but not for cars. It is very reliable the tubes etc. Problems, the streets around me get so busy sometimes with toursits, but that is ok really.

Community

Good: Nearby shops and cafes Cons: Terrible Parking. Its mostly renters by me, and students. Bin collection is fine.

Amenities

Local there is supermarkets and bars Also can get to London and everywhere by bus and tube What is missing is good parking, I work for NHs and work weird hours so parking for residents is a nightmare

It's a great area and has been under some regeneration which seems to be making it better.
