Little Portugal: an escape from London
I like that the area has a certain authenticity; it is still very Portugese in Little Portugal, this creates a strong sense of uniqueness and community. It has personality and excitement without being overcrowded or busy, which I really like. It can sometimes make you feel like you have left London which can be a nice escape. The atmosphere is upmarket and I feel it is an up-and-coming area. I rarely feel the need to leave because the has almost everything I need (including excellent Pastel de Nata). I do not see that many families, but I do not see any reason why it would not be suitable for children, there is a children's play park and a dog park 5 minutes walk away in Vauxhall. As a young woman it can feel unsafe walking around London at night, but I have never felt unsafe at night in my area, the local community is trusting.
Within walking distance of both Stockwell and Vauxhall stations - so good access to Northern and Victoria lines, both of which would normally run night tube, which makes going North/South very easy. They are both reliable, regular and clean lines. There is also a new Northern Line tube station in construction very close by at Nine Elms, opening in 2021 which seems like it will be modern and clean. There are good, reliable and clean buses along S Lambeth Road and Vauxhall bus station is not far away. The only issue is there can sometimes be traffic going north over the river bridges which might slow your journey, but this has never delayed me more than 5-10 minutes. There are national rail service trains from Vauxhall which run between Waterloo and areas south of London. I do not use it but it seems useful. There is no Overground line which is a shame, and there are no train links for travelling to South East/ South West London, so you have to get the bus which can be slow.
The houses are pretty and it is very green with lots of lovely trees and plants. My street is very quiet even though it is just off the main road, there is a little traffic noise but it is not intrusive and I have not seen any anti-social behaviour. I was worried when I moved in because my windows overlook the street and are very thin, but I have had no trouble with noise. There is good parking and bin collections are once a week (although this is early in the morning and can be very noisy, but that is not unusual). It seems that most people on the street are renters: couples and young professionals. There is a well-stocked 24 hour corner shop at the end of the street, a 30 second walk out the door which is incredibly useful in a pinch.
Restaurants/Food As we are in Little Portugal there are lots of Portugese restaurants where lots of people drink and chat on tables outside in the evening -it feels like you are in continental Europe which is nice. There are other good restaurants on S Lambeth Rd, Wilcox Rd and also close by in Vauxhall. Shops There are very good options for local shops: a 24hr corner shop, a tesco, a lidl, a huge Sainsburys a 5 minute walk away at Nine Elms, etc. There are also very good Portugese grocery shops which stock fresh fish, meat and vegetables. Pubs/Bars There are a couple of good English pubs and also a Brazilian pub also on S Lambeth Rd and Wilcox Road. Overall, it is very lively along S Lambeth Road and Wilcox Road, as there is space to dine and drink outside. But there aren't many upmarket bars where you might get a fancy cocktail - the nearest trendy bars I can think of are a 25 minute walk away in Battersea. Sports/Parks There are a couple of very good gyms within walking distance, outdoor tennis courts at Vauxhall park and an indoor climbing centre in the Vauxhall arches. The access to parks could be better - there is only really Vauxhall park which is quite small.
The atmosphere is lovely and multicultural.
It’s very trendy, regeneration has mostly been done. The atmosphere is lovely and multicultural.
All transport links are available, bus stops are not even 2 minute walk. New northern line is 5 minutes and you can get to Victoria line or rail line in 5 minutes
It’s a mixture of renters and privately own new builds. The area has undergone huge regen and some of it is still being completed. Battersea power station is amazing. Suitable for hound professionals and families. Battersea Park is just a 5 mi ute bus ride away.
Great newly built area with the convenience of local grocery stores, new northern line extension being opened and the market on a Sunday is amazing.
Decent range of mid to upper range shops and a mix of better value to
Could do with more innovative thinking and less chains.
I commute to my job in Canary Wharf on the Northern Line changing to Jubilee Line, this is the greatest stress of my day due to how busy and monotenous it is, but cant say its badly connected, hopefully wfh will continue
Lovely cute street with a number of smaller families, very happy here, no complaints with the bins or noise levels. all good.
Decent range of mid to upper range shops and a mix of better value too. Restaurants are a mix of chains and local overpriced places, bars are all expensive and loud.
not much shops, restaurants

Pimlico is generally quite however I find that there is quite a contrast in the people living in the area.
