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.

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!

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.

This area is very dangerous if you’re not familiar with it.

This area would be great if it went through urban regeneration, I feel like it needs more luxurious hot spots like shopping malls, restaurants and parks. Since the buildings are very old it doesn’t give that brand new appeal.

Transport

There are many cycle lanes which is good, but be careful you will be at risk of losing your bike to a thug. The main transport around her are buses, especially the P5 which goes through different routes. The nearest train station is Oval which is not bad at all.

Community

The houses here are typically flats, nothing special at all. In fact the flats are pretty old are are dirty inside. The council makes an effort to keep them clean but have a hard time due to the graffiti and disrespect by gang members.

Amenities

This area is very dangerous if you’re not familiar with it. Countless times I’ve seen people up to no good. Stay safe around this area. There aren’t really any top tier restaurants so I wouldn’t recommend looking around for any. The most you could find are your local chicken shops, or off licenses.
