“Really quiet road, as there is a barrier in the road to stop it being a through-road.”
Decent, but could be much improved
What I like the most is the peace and quiet, as well as the number of parks nearby. I certainly don't like the fact that a lot of the property here has been purchased by those predatory landlords who try to shove as many people as possible in a single house, which is bad for their quality of life and makes it hard to foster a sense of community as people are always coming and going.
There are plenty of bus routes around the area, including night buses. If you work towards central London and you don't own a car, then you'll have to use the Overground, which, while it's certainly not the best tube line, I'd say it's reasonably frequent and reliable.
Most of my street is inhabited by renting couples and families, and it's a pretty quiet place with plenty of parking options and such. So far, I haven't come across any issues.
In my particular area, there are not very many local shops, as well as bars and restaurants. That's something that's very much lacking here. I find myself almost exclusively shopping online and ordering for delivery - even during "normal" times - due to a lack of options. There are quite a few parks and sporting grounds nearby, which is probably my favourite part of living around here, although several of them are half filled with cemeteries. At the risk of sounding insensitive, I really wish they'd just stop burying people in densely populated areas, and leave these parks for children to enjoy themselves in. That would certainly breathe some life into Brockley. In terms of education, I'd say there's a fair amount of options. There's a primary and a secondary school right next to me, although the latter is a single sex school, which is a bit of a bummer as I'd never send one of my kids to such a thing. Overall, I'd say it's an alright area to live in. Yes, it is indeed a bit lacking in terms of amenities, but, at the end of the day, you're still quite close to central London, which is something I personally think one should appreciate, as you have access to so many things with just a bit of travelling.
A wonderful place to call home.
Although, I don't drive, several friends of mine have complemented the area on how easy it is to find parking due its “openness”.
Transport in the area is satisfactory, just like other areas in London buses being widely available, with our local station Crofton Park also close by. The buses are relatively consistent arriving on time and are adequately clean.
Due to the large number of communal areas, the area has a great sense of community and a bubbling atmosphere, as such anti-social behaviour is uncommon; the area composed of a nice mix of owner families and renting couples My only critique is that the area can get somewhat noisy on busy days even from the comfort of your home.
The area is fantastic, especially if you have children. Less than 10 mins apart is an adventure play ground, community centre and playground, a bit further out and you have a CO-OP, clothing store and health care trust. The play ground are the community highlight, the local children playing there while the congregate at the community centre.
Really quiet road, as there is a barrier in the road to stop it being a through-road.
Would be nice to have a Sainsbury's Local or Tesco Express closer to where we live that would be very very convenient.
Brockley Station 10 mins to the north, Honor Oak Station and Crofton Station to the south 10 and 20 minutes respectively. Three bus routes down the end of our road.
Really quiet road, as there is a barrier in the road to stop it being a through-road. Mainly renters live down my road. Families live down the road, families that have lived there for a long time, so people know each other quite well.
We have a few shops in the area, a few takeaways within 5-7 min walk. Sainsbury's Local is not so local probably a 20 minute walk. A couple pubs and bars are in the area also which is nice.
I like how calm and tranquil my local area is the atmosphere is calm and quie

It is a great area for anyone with a Dog because of the parks nearby for walking.
