Massively under rated part of London

We love it here! The area is going to change alot in the next few years - lots of new building coming and the tube coming too - check out plans for the Baker loo extension. The new station will only be a stone's throw away! If you're looking for a good investment I'd highly recommend buying around here as property values will surely go up soon around here!

Transport

Every bus you could ever need right on your doorstep on old Kent rd - makes transport quite easy. Buses are so frequent that even when they're quite full you can easily just wait for another. No tube within walking distance which is annoying - bermondsey and elephant and castle both a 15 minute bus ride or so. Queens road overground is a 10 minute walk, south bermondsey overground about 15 minute walk and peckham rye overground a half hour walk. East ride into the city from from bermondsey

Community

We're on the tustin estate. it has a great school, friendly neighbours and is much quieter than you would expect looking at it. Our section is 50/50 freeholders and council tenants - not sure about the rest of the estate. The estate will be redeveloped over the next few years. You can't hear old Kent rd at all even though its quite close

Amenities

A ten minute walk away is queens rd peckham where you have a range of lovely cafes and restaurants for a nice meal. Brunch, great coffee, cocktails, fancy dinners, good pizza- you get it all at queens rd. I particularly recommend blackbird for American pancakes! For coffee I prefer well and fed - and they're nicer in well and fed as well. Peckham high street is about a 15 minute walk and it has so much to offer. We particularly love the new mall and the bussey building roof bar in summer - but theres so much to choose from. and of course if you want middle eastern food you can't beat Persepolis. Brimington park is just over the road - its scruffy but if you just need to run thr kids/dog around it's fine. Itll be redeveloped in the next few years too. Southwark park is a 20 minute walk, peckham common a 30 minute walk and the peckham canal path a 15 minute walk - so ample very nice green space a bit further.

What I like most about living in Deptford is the peace and quiet you get.

What I like most about living in Deptford is the peace and quiet you get. In addition I also like the accessible transport that you can receive in addition to the community, the only thing to dislike is the bins not being empty by the local council. The overall atmosphere of Deptford is quiet, calm and peaceful. Deptford is not in need of regeneration and is a unique place to live. The area is a suitable place for children and pets to live in.

Transport

There are a wide variety of busses to other areas, in addition to a local train station there are also good places to cycle along the road the service provided by the bus and trains are very reliable and very effective for the community and the services are clean however the traffic depends on if it is after kids have come out of school or going to school then it gets busy. The problems Deptford faces in terms of transport is the lack of an underground station which would help the community and lack of night buses being reduced.

Community

The good aspects of living on my street is the peace and quiet you receive from the local area, crime is very low in Deptford, most of people whomst live in Deptford are renting from the local council, however when it comes to parking in the flats there is no space available and there is no nearby parking facilities to use, the bins within the flats get filled up quickly leading to overflow which is a common issue. Due to not being in the big city of London there is minimal traffic noise and minimum anti social behaviour as Deptford is a quiet area

Amenities

There are a range of independent shops along the street alongside an independent Chinese restaurant with plenty of available seating, there is also a Mcdonalds and a KFC and an independent chicken shop on the main road, this accommodates for the restaurants along the road, there are several open spaces most noticeably Deptford park, it is a big luxurious space and is never packed as there is always a space to hang around at. An interesting local area is Deptford market, it is a big place with a wide variety of things to purchase, there is also a library, cinema and gym located within the area. In addition there is also a national rail station and local buses nearby.

It a great deal of need of regeneration and development

Transport

Very poor, only one train line which gets you into London and most weekend there are engineering works so you a more less stranded for transport. Buses are a waste of time, living so close to central London you will be lucky to find a bus to take to to London Bridge or anywhere else

Community

Run down area, full of empty wear houses. Walk way from south bermondsey station is not safe and looks tired

Amenities

Very little range of anything decent in the area, shops range from chicken shops, Greg’s, dodgy second hand phone shops. No restaurants, no coffee shops, nothing decent in the area

fair bit of walking (10-15 mins) to get to any station or main bus route. But once you get there the links are great
