Life between Brixton, Camberwell and Herne Hill

The area is lovely. I'm in the middle of vibrant Brixton which is amazing during summer. Kings college hospital is near by. The only thing i think needs changing is the many council properties around the area.

Transport

Brixton’s blessed with excellent transport links, and there’s ample buses, tubes, trains and night buses making it easy to get around at any time of the day or night. There is also a rail station on Atlantic Road and Loughborough is a bit of a hidden gem, offering a fast train service into central London, whisking you into Victoria in a mere seven minutes. The station is situated two minutes away from the tube station (turn right and then first left up Atlantic Road. Climb the stairs to access the elevated station). Besides Train and tube Brixton is served 24 hours a day by a wide selection of bus/night buses running in all directions, with most of the major routes passing outside the tube station.

Community

The good part of living here is that i'm between Brixton and Camberwell and Herne Hill Lots of great shops and activities to do in both Brixton and Camberwell. Brixton is attracting more and more high street shops such as Pret. There is lots of ways to commute and connect to pretty much everywhere in London. A few great parks in the area like Ruskin Park and Myett's fields park. These are all the great stuff of living in this street but the bad aspect is that the street is surrounded by many blocks of council property which attacks a partical sort of people. There is a youth centre on walking distance where a few stabbing incident have taken place and even murder.

Amenities

Brixton is a lively, multicultural area with a down-to-earth vibe. Brixton Market offers street food and vintage finds, plus clothes and produce that reflect the area’s Caribbean roots. Casual eateries serving global fare line pedestrian-friendly Brixton Village. Late-night revellers hit celebrated bars and live-music venues such as the O2 Academy Brixton for rock gigs, and Hootananny for cutting-edge sounds.

quite diverse and thereby engaging and affirming for all.

I moved to my area from just over a mile way four years ago and I have to say that I really enjoy both the parkland side by side a short walk to the 'Brixton Hub' and so there is nothing that I dislike about my local area. In response to describing the local area there is an upmarket, traditional as well as trendy theme - quite diverse and thereby engaging and affirming for all. Regeneration is now complete within our area with amazing outcomes. The safe, diverse and thereby engaging area means that it is a safe area for children and young families.

Transport

Only a short ten minute walk to the local bus or tube stops which easily connect to Central London with a 15 minute bus ride or five minutes via the tube network. Overground train stations are a 20 minute walk to travel to Kent - Central London or North London are every 5 or 10 minutes wait on the overground train platform. The service of all transport links are particularly reliable for travel both locally as well as throughout London and surrounding area. As with most public transport rush hour means added time to the normal journey time. Night travel is excellent via bus.

Community

Parking is well regulated from on street parking to garage spaces for rental at a reasonable daily, weekly or monthly cost. Lambeth Council as well as estate cleaning services mean that bin collection is of an excellent standard. Anti-social behaviour has been adequately addressed so we now live in our home without the stress and worry of any form of anti-social behaviour. Traffic noise is not an issue given the location three streets back from the main road so a peaceful day and night. A combination of both leaseholders as well as renters composed of wide range of students, elderly young couples and families compose our vibrant and engaging community.

Amenities

A good full range of established supermarkets and added to this is a short walk from home to Brixton with its diverse shopping and incredible markets. Added to shopping there are a large range of different restaurants and bars. Stockwell is knows a Little Portugal and so there are many small to mid range restaurants featuring this cuisine. There are many parks and open spaces which are well looked after by Lambeth Council but also by many local residents enforcing the sense of community. We are blessed by such a selection that it does not feel like local residents or visits are missing any much needed amenities.

Not a bad place to live in in London but not without its drawbacks

Neither trendy nor upmarket but having lived in various areas in London including Mayfair and Bermondsey, the pricing is reasonable (rent, supermarkets, commuting costs). Still close enough to the central but remote enough to find tranquility in local parks and residential roads. Beautiful architecture in some areas and nice city skyscrapers view from Ruskin park.

Transport

Plenty of choices A bus that goes straight to Shoreditch via City, good connection to other parts of London. Overground stations within short walking distance and a short bus commute to Brixton station although feels a bit too far for the nearest tube.

Community

I am not aware if the people around are owners but definitely no student type of population, mostly young professionals. Noise is present from a couple of main roads nearby. Can get loud due to the younger population and also witnessed a few drug dealing situations on the street. Bin collection is regular, weekly. Cannot comment on parking as I don’t drive.

Amenities

Anything from those on the cheaper side including popular takeaways to the chains like Wagamama. There are also some unique and reasonably priced cafes like Johnny’s with American diner style food served. Good coverage of supermarkets but no upper market like M&S or Waitrose nearby.
