I like that the area is quiet and lovely place to return to after a long day's work.

I like that the area is quiet and lovely place to return to after a long day's work. There area a few restaurants with not much nightlife as this would be mostly in central London. It is convenient and ideal for families with children and young married couples. There are many upcoming new-builts. It's the kind of place where you know you will be able to settle comfortably and not have to worry about noise and safety.

Transport

SE16 is close to the Canada Water station which happens to be on the Jubilee line and Overground line. The station can get crowded during rush hour, but train come on time mostly. It is also within walking distance to Bermondsey and Surrey Quays stations. There are many buses around the area though traffic on the road can sometimes mean buses are also stuck even though there are separate bus lanes. Recently the cycleway in the area going into central London has been completed and a lot more are using bicycles instead of public transport.

Community

Residents here are diverse and the area is peaceful and close to Central London. Mostly families and working professionals live in the area given its ideal location close to Canary Wharf and London Bridge. Relatively safe area though we have heard of the occasional pick-pockets. Noise level is low given it is a very quiet residential area.

Amenities

Surrey Quays shopping centre is 5 mins away with many shops including clothing and fashion, Tesco Extra, the Range, phone repairs, Halifax and HSBC Bank branches. There's Decathlon near the shopping complex which is very convenient and popular for the local community to get sports equipment and attire. There's also a free public library close to the tube station. Restaurants in the area are not limited. There's a variety of good Italian, British, Vietnamese and Chinese restaurants within close vicinity of one another, and many cafes and pubs open for brunches or wholesome Sunday roasts. There's also a free gym and swimming pool for residents in the area during Fridays (all day), Saturdays and Sundays (after 2pm). There is also a huge park behind the neighborhood that has ping pong tables, tennis courts, playground for children and a nice running path. Residents here are diverse and the area is peaceful and close to Central London.

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.

This is not the Garter way....

If your the type of person looking for a quiet place to settle down in this is the place for you, otherwise you’ll be left longing for more.

Transport

Transport is great when compared to other UK cities but for London is somewhat disappointing. Buses are pass by sparingly leading to wait times of 10+ minutes and the station is lengthy walk away.

Community

The area is great visually and pretty peaceful never really getting too busy or loud, however as mentioned is lacking in terms of amenities and transport. The area is full of primarily homeowners from all corners of life ranging from singles to full families.

Amenities

Not much is the area unfortunately outside of the local schools, theres a small Tesco, a few Surrey Quays and a burger restaurant. Stave Hill park has to be the most popular place in the area, its this massive green landscape full of a variety of trees and a pond. More local high street shops would really make the place popping as as it is you have to travel out a bit for non essentials.

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
