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.

In Brixton, we have so many restaurants with so many cultures and flavours from all over the world.

I love how trendy some of the bars and pubs are in Brixton although they are on the more pricey side. But this is the usual thing in London at the moment with 'trendy' areas. Brixton has plenty of great parks so if you have a pet its great to take them for walks. Also, Brockwell park hosts a few fun festivals.

Transport

Brixton is also great for transport. From my flat its a short 3-minute walk to Brixton underground station that can get you almost anywhere super fast - there is always a train waiting so your never waiting around to get moving. There are also plenty of bus stops & Santander bikes available around.

Community

Some bad bits of Brixton are: 1) Parking is terrible. there is almost nowhere for free and most spaces require payment (if you can find one) 2) Anti-social behaviour can sometimes be bad in Brixton. There have been several times where I have come hope to people drinking on my doorstep who get aggressive when asked to move & also a few occasions where housemates would get abused with homophobic remarks. Some good bits: Brixton is a busy place and if you like that - it's a great place to be. With it always being busy you can always find something to do or meet amazing new people to learn from.

Amenities

Brixton is great for amenities. In Brixton, we have so many restaurants with so many cultures and flavours from all over the world. A great spot to find these are in either Pop Brixton or Brixton Village. As for bars Brixton also has some great bars ranging in prices: from cocktail bars to traditional pubs. My personal favourite bar is the cHIP-sHOP as I'm a massive Hip-Hop Fan.

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.
