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.

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.

SE5:,An Extraordinary Ordinary Place!

The area is definitely safe, trendy, upmarket and a good place to raise kids owing to proximity to social amenities, parks, schools, libraries, hospitals, listed churches and in fact very historical places like the birth place of Charlie Chaplin, Oliver Goldsmith etc. It’s also a nice place to have and raise a pet. Well, everyone has got one with cats being the favourite.

Transport

Camberwell and in fact the whole of SE5 is just a stone throw from Central London and therefore centrally located with underground, overground, national rail, Santander cycle and buses literally a stone throw from every single doorstep. The area being near to Central London, in fact, about 2 miles is well served by night buses. The central location makes rush hour a pleasurable experience because there’s always another bus behind!

Community

Being near to central London, parking can be a problem but then with well connected public transport who cares. Also, there’s always a Zipcar around the corner as well as Santander bike littered everywhere! Though on a major road leading into London, I must confess that traffic noise is not that bad compared to other suburbs near to a major city. The area is also not bad in terms of security so far you take caution. Being a predominantly student living area, you’d expect some anti-social behaviours sometimes but not one serious enough to invite a major concern. Think about, students will always be students!

Amenities

New York is a city that never sleeps. If that’s true then Camberwell is a suburb of London that suffers from insomnia. The suburb is always lively with huge open Burgess Park, probably the biggest in London. The Camberwell High Street is centrally located and well connected to all parts of London. In fact, it’s less than 20 minutes walk from Central London. Living in Camberwell is like living in Central London but on a suburb budget. The High Street is never lacking in anything including restaurants, gyms, schools, library and every single thing in life that makes a huge city. The transport link is also on top as the Camberwell just like the rest of SE5 is centrally located to underground, overground, national rail, Santander bike and of course bus routes service almost half the buses in London going into Central London.

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

Transport links are good. Tube station is 10 min away and lots of bus stops - city centre is only a short bus ride away.

Community

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

Amenities

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.
