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 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.
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.
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.
SE5:,An Extraordinary Ordinary Place!
The area is definitely safe, trendy, upmarket and a good place to raise kids owing to proximity to social amenities, parks, schools, libraries, hospitals, listed churches and in fact very historical places like the birth place of Charlie Chaplin, Oliver Goldsmith etc. It’s also a nice place to have and raise a pet. Well, everyone has got one with cats being the favourite.
Camberwell and in fact the whole of SE5 is just a stone throw from Central London and therefore centrally located with underground, overground, national rail, Santander cycle and buses literally a stone throw from every single doorstep. The area being near to Central London, in fact, about 2 miles is well served by night buses. The central location makes rush hour a pleasurable experience because there’s always another bus behind!
Being near to central London, parking can be a problem but then with well connected public transport who cares. Also, there’s always a Zipcar around the corner as well as Santander bike littered everywhere! Though on a major road leading into London, I must confess that traffic noise is not that bad compared to other suburbs near to a major city. The area is also not bad in terms of security so far you take caution. Being a predominantly student living area, you’d expect some anti-social behaviours sometimes but not one serious enough to invite a major concern. Think about, students will always be students!
New York is a city that never sleeps. If that’s true then Camberwell is a suburb of London that suffers from insomnia. The suburb is always lively with huge open Burgess Park, probably the biggest in London. The Camberwell High Street is centrally located and well connected to all parts of London. In fact, it’s less than 20 minutes walk from Central London. Living in Camberwell is like living in Central London but on a suburb budget. The High Street is never lacking in anything including restaurants, gyms, schools, library and every single thing in life that makes a huge city. The transport link is also on top as the Camberwell just like the rest of SE5 is centrally located to underground, overground, national rail, Santander bike and of course bus routes service almost half the buses in London going into Central London.
This area is very dangerous if you’re not familiar with it.
This area would be great if it went through urban regeneration, I feel like it needs more luxurious hot spots like shopping malls, restaurants and parks. Since the buildings are very old it doesn’t give that brand new appeal.
There are many cycle lanes which is good, but be careful you will be at risk of losing your bike to a thug. The main transport around her are buses, especially the P5 which goes through different routes. The nearest train station is Oval which is not bad at all.
The houses here are typically flats, nothing special at all. In fact the flats are pretty old are are dirty inside. The council makes an effort to keep them clean but have a hard time due to the graffiti and disrespect by gang members.
This area is very dangerous if you’re not familiar with it. Countless times I’ve seen people up to no good. Stay safe around this area. There aren’t really any top tier restaurants so I wouldn’t recommend looking around for any. The most you could find are your local chicken shops, or off licenses.
This area is quite nice for families

The transport links are really good, Stockwell and oval station are both within a 5 minute walk and the busses run regularly
