“Central area in desperate need of regeneration”
It could do with a regeneration and getting more shops in the area.
It could do with a regeneration and getting more shops in the area. You do have to travel to neighbouring towns to do clothes shopping. The good thing is that you have good supermarkets for your daily needs. School wise, its a bus ride away to the nearest school, if you got little ones there are a few preschools that come highly recommended like Hurley Pre School. Its a good neighbourhood if you want to start a family.
The closest station is Kennington, but if you take the bus the next closest is Elephant and Castle. If you don't wish to take the train, there are many buses that can take you to tooting broadway, streatham, liverpool street or old kent road. They are pretty regular, only concern would be, that the area could do with more night buses.
Its permit holders only, but just weekdays, so weekends there is usually plenty of parking for family and friends, when we are allowed to have them over again. Once you are off the main road it is quiet. Just be aware this is a red route zone so parking on A3 is impossible. We do have a mixture of families that have lived in the area for years and those that have moved in the recent years, so its a nice environment. You get different walks of life.
The area is primarily blocks of flats so coffee shops are hardly seen. The closest you will get to restaurants is Dominos and Mr Ma's Kitchen that serve really nice Chinese, Thai and Korean dishes. With regards to outdoor space there is a small park called Pedlars Acre, perfect for those that have children. If you are into fitness there is a 24hour gym, after a stressful day at work, best way of letting out your tension. It would be nice if the area could have a trendy side to it, like cocktail bars.
Diamond in a haystack!
I like the location of the area, the way things are so accessible is just a satisfying thing. The neighbourhood is always quiet and enjoyable too! The area is suitable for all kinds; I had an elderly lady as my neighbour for about eight years, and not one complaint!
The transport links are very lucky. Everywhere can be accessed from this point. Buses can link to places like Oxford Street, Old Kent Road and Peckham. Camberwell can be accessed easily from here to which can lead you to a train station, same with Elephant and Castle. Rush hour is the usual 12, but only on non school days.
Bin Collections occurred weekly, they are convenient for us. Traffic doesn’t affect us because this area is quite secluded. Parking availability is never a problem, the car park is just below and has available space at all times.
This area is very cultured. Just a 10 minute walk from our area is East Street Market, where they sell a range of products, from fresh meat to hair products for anyone, anywhere. Just before that is the Villa Street Medical Centre, where they have a peaceful environment with amazing staff and skills to ensure you leave the GP with the best outcome. There are a range of school situated around it, good for kids that you may have. Popular stores like Iceland, JD Sports, McDonald’s, Boots SuperDrug are all local and can be reached within a walk. Elephant and Castle is just a bus away where the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre lies. This area is a very quiet one, and anyone can get comfortable here. Of course everyone should know that a three minute walk away is Burgess Park, anyone can have parties, walks with pets, annual funfairs and even places of worship are considerable distances away. This area is like a diamond in a jewel, surrounded by lovely places to visit.
Central area in desperate need of regeneration
I personally dislike the atmosphere and the community in the area as it is largely not taking care of the area, litters and behaves disgracefully Hopefully it will change in a few years
Transport links are good. Tube station is 10 min away and lots of bus stops - city centre is only a short bus ride away.
Not many good aspects about the street itself (it is quite dreadful) but the building block is ok, most neighbours are professionals and friendly enough and interested to keep the block in a good state
Shops aren’t great but there is one small marks and Spenser down the road. Lots of pound shops and quite a few low end coffee shops and fast food joints.
the transport is very good
