My experience as a student in Rotherhithe and surrounding areas
As a student I believe I have found such a clean and welcoming area for the price. During our first year of living here we made friends with numerous neighbours who we have got along with really nicely. The area is modern and safe and I never felt in danger while travelling around the neighbourhood, particularly at night. Being next to the Thames is a bonus and makes you feel like you're really a part of London. Seeing Canary Wharf overarch the area is an intriguing dynamic but offers some spectacular views at night if you're the city-dweller type. While I don't believe the area is suitable for pets I think the cleanliness, nearby amenities and open spaces make it a perfect place for students, couples, families and more.
From where I am based there is a bus stop within a 1 minute walk that hosts the regular C10 bus service to Victoria and Canada Water. A further 3 minutes walk and you'll find another bus service that runs the 381 service to Peckham and Waterloo. These bus services are handy if you want to get to Canada Water tube station without the 20 minute walk. Buses are typically reliable and clean although traffic around Rotherhithe tunnel and Bermondsey is a real issue during rush hour times. Being close to Canada Water tube station is incredibly beneficial as it hosts the Jubilee network which links to some crucial parts in London - including London Bridge, Green Park, Canary Wharf, Stratford etc. The overground network helps connect the dots around London's smaller towns and neighbourhoods.
My street consists of a diverse range of people who live together as couples or families with age ranges from 20 onwards. I believe most of these people are renters however some of our neighbours own property. The neighbourhood around Rotherhithe are kind and welcoming and there's a guarantee you'll become friendly with at least someone in close proximity to you. Most people seem to live in blocks of flats ranging in size. We live in flats next to Rotherhithe Street which ties the peninsula together nicely at the cost of increased traffic and noise. During the day you'll often hear loud cars or motorbikes speeding down the road which is dangerous for cyclists or young children. You'll sometimes hear some anti-social behaviour at night but this is quite rare and usually caused by the pubs nearby.
My local area offers an adequate range of shops, bars, restaurants etc. You'll find your usual small independant newsagents along with a Coop and Sainsburys local near the town centre if you fancy walking a bit further across. Tesco operates within the town centre as the main "super-size" supermarket with everything you could possibly need; even an integrated Next store. While the Canada Water Shopping Centre is itself slightly dated it offers a wide range of mainstream "high-street" stores and banks which help cater for clothing, sporting goods, entertainment and more. However the shopping centre could do with some more diversity with the range of shops on offer. The retail park nearby is on hand to satisfy certain leisure cravings including bowling and a cinema with additional mainstream restaurants available and a large car park. In regards to pubs and restaurants I noticed the area is very popular for independant businesses which I believe is beneficial for the community. Apart from some "fast food" chains you'll find an abundance of small cafes and restaurants operating independently. In particular, the restaurants located near the Canada Water bus station seem to be popular with locals. Alongside indoor spaces you'll find a large outdoor parks and open spaces popular for walkers, runners, dog walkers etc. The community utilising these spaces are diverse and you'll often run into families or groups of people. During the summer some open spaces were used for picnics or BBQs. The parks are kept clean and tidy and if you fancy venturing near Bermondsey you'll find the beautiful Southwark Park. I don't believe there is anything missing in the Canada Water area. I think more Santander bikes will benefit the local suburban communities but apart from that I wholesomely believe Canada Water and Rotherhithe is a nice area for anyone to live.
The atmosphere is extremely friendly, sociable, and clean.
The atmosphere is extremely friendly, sociable, and clean. The people living around the neighbourhood are kind and friendly, and importantly, considerate. There is a lot of green space around the house by the body of water, and there are always people walking by with their pets and children. Absolutely fantastic area overall.
The tube station has two lines going through it; the jubilee line and the overground. These are highly convenient, as the centre of London is 2-5 stops away, where any links to other lines can be found. A number of buses go through the station as well, which connect the area with the east side of London (eg Greenwich). Despite the pandemic, the station can get busy, but always at manageable levels.
The particular street is located near Surrey Water, which is a picturesque body of water leading to the Thames. It is extremely quiet and residential, with families and young professionals living around it mostly. There is weekly bin collection, and some free space for parking right outside the house. From my understanding the residents on the street have been living here for some years, leading me to believe they own the houses.
I live around 8 mins walking distance from Canada Water Station, where there is a groceries store, a library, and some coffee shops. A further five minute walk away is the Surrey Quays shopping centre, which contains a bigger supermarket, in addition to pharmacies, clothes shops, some restaurants, and other amenities. Overall, the local area doesn’t miss any necessary amenities at all, all of which are located within a 15 minute walking distance radius.
Great views to the thames river
