Amazing parks; lots of activities; diverse community and a place where everyone can feel at home

I most like how everything I need is close together, the shops, the park and the train station are all very close. The lido in the summer is could be one if my favourite things; I love how theres just so much to do, but unfortunately, to an expense. The area is very multi cultural and diverse; there are people from all places and all ages. You can be who you are and not be judged as everybody is used to diversity. "Off The Cuff" is a trendy bar with live music that hosts No ID where local bands play mostly rock while teens and older dance and have a mosh pit while adults stand at the back at watch. It's extremely fun and definitely worth the £4 needed to enter. One bad thing is that there are thieves and quite a few homeless people. A guy actually told me he was planning on stealing my bike before I came to unlock it. He walk around Herne Hill and upper Tulse Hill with a balaclava rested on his head like a hat and sells stolen bikes to locals. So if you have a nice bike, bring a good lock. Overall, I love this area and plan on living here as long as possible.

Transport

Herne hill has it's own station with the southeastern line and Thames link. The trains are reliable and the platform is well cleaned and in good condition. Many buses pass through Herne Hill although there can be terrible traffic sometimes and when there is, your better off walking or taking the train. The best way to get around herne hill is on a bike or scooter. It's a life saver being able to skip traffic and get anywhere you want with reliable timings. Overall, theres good public transport only that the buses are slow when there is traffic which is usually on Saturdays.

Community

My road is quite quiet mostly, with occasional wails from foxes in the night, bin collectors come once a week and there is decent parking availability. Most of the people that live on my road are extremely friendly. There are many couples and families and we have a street party most years where we shit off the street with the council's permission and everyone gets together and socialises with food and lots of activities where kids can play and meet other kids that live on the street. Anyone and everyone is welcome.

Amenities

Herne Hill has absolutely everything an area needs. It has: A train station, mini supermarkets, corner shops, pubs, restaurants, a huge park, a farmers market every Sunday, barbers, a post office, a range of schools nearby, bakery shops as well as butchers and a lot of other interesting businesses. The is a bar with live music and a hidden stage beside it which hosted many events before covid called Off The Cuff. Brockwell park has it's own bmx track along with tennis courts, a cafe, a paddling pool, a flower garden to relax in, a playground and even a BETTER(a company) gym, and a large swimming pool in The Brockwel Lido. On sunny days the park and herne hill centre can get very busy but it's what you would expect in London anyways. The one thing that it's missing (but is definitely not an essential) is an indoor skate park. It would give the young generation a good reason to get outside, find passions and excersize even when it rains.

Herne Hill is the best choice I have made in London!

Since moving to Herne Hill I have loved it! It's got a really fantastic mix of all the things you want nearby: ie shops, pubs, restaurants, plant / garden centres, swimming pool, open spaces. The people I have met in the local area have all been lovely and welcoming and it would be a wonderful place if you had kids.

Transport

Herne Hill Station has Thameslink services into central London and Victoria. Additionally it is a 20 minute walk, or shorter bus to Brixton to join at the first stop of the Victoria line, so good chance of a seat! The bus services are good and run to a number of different places. The one downside is that Herne Hill does not have its own tube, but its definitely not somewhere to write off because of that!

Community

The street I live on looks directly into Brockwell Park which is a massive plus. The street is relatively busy, but the traffic noise isn't that bad in the flat and the view and location more than make up for it. Our neighbours mostly own their flats and have all been very friendly since we moved, far more so than I have experienced in balham and Clapham. On the more mundane side the council bin collection runs weekly and has never refused to take anything we have left out.

Amenities

Herne Hill has a fantastic range of local shops, pubs, and restaurants. The main hub of these is around the station (where they also hold the Sunday Market) but there are plenty of others throughout Herne Hill. There is also a Sainsburys and Tesco for any day to day shopping. For green space there cannot be many areas in London better served than Herne Hill, with Brockwell Park (containing the lido, tennis and basketball courts, football and tag rugby pitches, miniature railway etc) right on your doorstep, and Dulwich Park, Dulwich and Sydenham woods, and Ruskin Park all easily walkable.

The area is quiet, but could do with being a bit more lively. It is very safe, and has a family feel

Transport

Near denmark hill station. The overground is fine, but it would be nice to be connected to a tube for ease

Community

It is nice and quiet, and the council are good. It is mainly local families, but the area has changed quite a bit

Amenities

There are a few places nearby, but a broader variety in Herne Hill. The quality is good- often family run places, that care about service
