Nice affordable area at 10 mins from Central London
I've never felt unsafe in the area, even if I know in the past it had quite a reputation. It's a trafficked area, with not many private gardens so most pets live indoors where it's safer to be. This help keep the noise down, though, as you rarely hear barks.
There are two train stations at easy reach from the high street: Lewisham Station and Ladywell. From Lewisham Station, trains from and to London main stations are plenty all throughout the day. There is also the DLR, which brings you quickly to Canary Wharf. Buses, too, are plenty. Lewisham is in zone 2 so it takes 10 mins to reach London Bridge and 20 to Cannon Street and Victoria.
An extensive, multi-tiered car park can be found at the shopping centre, and another small one with electric car charging points is situated just next to it (this latest one is currently being used as a Covid testing centre, though). Bins are emptyed nearly daily but it depends on the area you live in. The area is, for the most part, residential so it's quiet enough.
Lewisham (SE13) has everything people living in the area need to live comfortably. There is a small but well furnished shopping centre which includes a Sainsburys', Argos, M&S, WH Smith and post office, Boots and other shops. It's at a 5 mins walk from the main train station. In the area there is also a big Tesco, a Lidl and not too far away also an Aldi. Near the station there is a well equipped sports centre with a pool and gym classes, which also skirts a small conservation area where a river passes through and green spaces can be enjoyed. At a 30 mins walk you can reach Greenwich and it's beautiful parks and observatory. Other well kept parks - at an easy to reach distance - are scattered around the area as well. The high street sees also a public library and other well known brands, as well as one of the best fresh vegetables street markets in London. Pubs, restaurants and cafes abound, too. What's missing is a cinema or theatre, which I think is being built now or will be soon. There isn't a bookshop, unfortunately, but there is a Waterstones in Blackheath.
Wonderful area with all necessities nearby
Lovely atmosphere and area, suitable for childen or pets due to the nearby parks. I would consider this a very safe area, haven't had any issues to think differently.
Hither Green station is a 5 min walk where trains can take you to London Bridge, Waterloo and Charing Cross in 20 mins. Plenty of buses that can take you to Catford, Woolwich, Greenwich.
Absolutely no traffic noise, a very quiet street. Lovely looks to Manor Park from the back windows. There are parking availability in front of each buildings. Not really a student area, more likely to see families and kids playing in the nearby parks.
Lovely and quiet area with local shops nearby, including hairdressers, coffee shops, pharmacy, restaurants. There are several well maintained parks nearby as well. Lewisham shopping centre also offers a wide variety of shops in 15 mins walking distance.

Although not the most up and coming, there are certainly nearby areas that are worthy of note and we are well served with amenities, shops, eateries and community spaces. There are definitely communities around that are doing their best to regenerate the area. The area could do with a little more regeneration as there are some areas that are particularly run down and others that can feel unsafe if out alone. Generally though this is an affordable, friendly and connected place to live.
The links to central London are surprisingly good in SE what with the rail service. I can get conveniently to London Bridge and Waterloo from Catford, Ladywell and Lewisham. It is unfortunate that there is no tube service in this area, which means that it is more difficult and inconvenient to travel west to Brixton, for example. This connection could significantly improve the area, as well a perhaps extending the overground to serve more of the South East.
Living on this street is convenient for proximity to shops and amenities, unlike a 10-15 minute walk away which is quieter but less well connected. On the whole the area is quiet, with no noticeable anti social behaviour. We hear the occasional ambulance for the hospital but nothing that is too intrusive or keeps us awake at night.
There are lots of lovely places in the area for socialising, eating out and walking. During the lockdowns on 2020 I particularly liked taking walks in Mountsfield Park where there is a lovely park cafe offering hot drinks, cakes and speciality sandwiches to takeaway. The park is big enough for long enough walk and it’s easy to find a good route. I also enjoy the range of cafes and eateries nearby in Ladywell. There is plenty of choice but I’m a particular fan of Mama Dough for pizza and Oscar’s for coffee!
Very quiet area with nice people around
