“it's at times very quiet and more families have moved to houses around the area so it has become more family friendly over time.”
What I like about Stockwell is it only takes 10 minutes by bike to visit the Major attractions like the Big Ben.
Its suitable for children and pets. This is a major city hotspot so it's great for going to tourist attractions
Good cycle routes. It has easy cycle routes to main London spots like Oval, Clapham, Brixton and Vauxhall which are all 5 minutes and Kennington, Battersea Park, Victoria and Waterloo which are approximately 10 minutes away and London Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and most places in Central London being 20 minutes away. Another great thing about Stockwell is it hosts the Victoria Line with having fewer stops and extremely fast speeds this makes the Victoria Line the fastest line. It also hosts the Northern line which like Victoria Line is 24 hours open on the weekend. The Northern line also has 2 new stations being built; Battersea Power Station and Nine Elms station which is scheduled to be completed in Autumn 2021. Stockwell also has 24 hour bus routes. It's such an accessible place.
The good aspects of living on this street is being in central London, great access to other parts of London, amazing transport links, 24 hours buses, 24 hour London underground service on weekends, quite good cycle lanes, to Vauxhall, Oval, Kennington, Victoria, Elephant and Castle and London Bridge, close to Brixton, just a 5 minute bike ride to zone 1. They aren't any bad aspects to be honest. But this is a major city hotspot.
There's a 24 hour convenience store by the station. It's quite pricey compared to a supermarket but it's very convenient. We also have lidl which is great for a cheap bargain. Being in Stockwell is great because there are bicycle lanes here that go to London Bridge in 20 minutes, Waterloo in 15 minutes, Victoria in 10 minutes, and Vauxhall in 5 minutes This is great because Vauxhall is Zone 1 and famous for the MI5 Building that James Bond works in. Stockwell has a host of Portuguese and Brazilian cafes. 2 gyms. The Gym Group and Pure Gym. It also has a park called Larkhall Park which is decent and Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens which is 5 mins away by bike. What I like about Stockwell is it only takes 10 minutes by bike to visit the Major attractions like the Big Ben. Another great thing about Stockwell is your right in the centre of London and have access to all the bridges. Stockwell is Central London but bridges the gap to the Mighty South. In 5 minute bike ride you can be in the famous Brixton famous for it's elelectic Music and Afro Caribbean culture. Legends David Bowie was born here and Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix frequented here. In all Stockwell is a gateway to many and has two 24 hour underground lines making one of the best accessible places to live
I love the local atmosphere it is mainly very uplifting and energetic give you a real feel of community
I love the local atmosphere it is mainly very uplifting and energetic give you a real feel of community. It is quite up market but there is still all the amazing self employed stalls and I just love them
There are two tube stations round the corner that are easy to access with Brixton being wheelchair accessible rush hour can be a bit tricky but thankfully the staff are always kind and extremely helpful it is always as clean as can be I know the staff try there best and that's all anyone can ask for. There is a very wide range of busses thankfully takeing you all over London which is so very helpful.
It is a really good area to live in and kind people sometimes is can be very loud with police sirens but that is understandable I think mainly family's and couples live on our street as well as a wonderful place called evolve housing and support that help young people with housing issue and what not. The social behaviour of some people can be quite nerve racking at times but I have never felt unsafe
There is a high range of shops near me as we are also so close to Brixton we have shop's ranging from Poundland to Sainsbury's and Morley's to TK MAX . All these shops and there workers help so much with in the community another thing I love about our area is the feel of community there are so many self started and self owned restraints and stalls that when you go out you really feel like your helping the community and the people around. I think one of the most loved places in our area is the skate park it's always amazing to walk by and see all these young people gathering and having a laugh such talented people a real feel of community space nice to just site and watch on a lovely day.
it's at times very quiet and more families have moved to houses around the area so it has become more family friendly over time.
It's overall a safe place like any other place you will see people that may make it seem like a strange area but, we rarely have bad things happening in the area it's at times very quiet and more families have moved to houses around the area so it has become more family friendly over time.
I personally think it's quite in terms of the tube and buses around the area they come every 3 to 5 mins it gives you enough time to get to a place if you are running late. I haven't seen big issues to consider appart from sometimes it can be quite busy so it's difficult to get inside the transport in the mornings, rush hour time however, after 9 it slowly goes back to normality.
I do feel at times it doesn't feel safe at night it seems there's a few more gangs at certain times sometimes ramdom people can approach you and make you uncomfortable because you just don't know what they want and how they will react as most seemed under the influence of alcohol or even drugs.
The area I live is very diverse in terms of shops you can find a variety of different types of restaurant and cafe shops which are cosy and comfortable to just have a friendly catch up with a freind. The area is quite vibrant regardless of the time of day people come from other places to try the bars and clubs near places such at Brixton Clapham ect. It's a placed filled with hidden suprises you just never know what you will find or even try! I do think there could be more things for young people to do in the future as is evident more young people like this area.
