“This area is very dangerous if you’re not familiar with it.”
SW9: what it looks like south of Oval station!
My area is not too crowded, and lovely and modern, however my street and those directly surrounding it are all quite similar looking. Further afield, houses are full of a lot more character, but the proportion of new builds near me mean we lose some of that. I see children out and about all the time, and the copious number of schools nearby is testament to the neighbourhood’s family friendly status. I have never felt unsafe in the area surrounding my home.
The Northern line available from Oval and Kennington stations is hugely convenient, and never too horrendously busy even at the most crowded times. Buses are regular and comprehensively service all of the major roads in the area. However, the availability of widespread safe cycle lanes means that is also a popular choice for residents commuting in the area. Vauxhall is a slightly further but still manageable walk away. I have yet to have any troubles with the timetabling of bus routes either which is a nice change!
The area is a mixture of renters and owners, families and students, but all are incredibly respectful of one another and the neighbourhood feels both friendly and safe. The bin collection is very efficient, and underground garbage storage means the area remains very pretty even just before collection day. My street and the surrounding roads are very quiet given our proximity to both Brixton Road and New Camberwell Road, which is a huge relief. The only problem is parking availability, which I usually find to be quite limited.
The Oval / Kennington area to the North is a lovely bustling hub of great pubs and restaurants whilst simultaneously boasting good transport links. The Kennington is our local, and we love it there! Also nearby is Camberwell, similarly full of useful supermarkets and a huge range of great food from all kinds of cuisines. Local parks like Kennington Park and Myatt’s Fields Park break up the busier areas with quiet green spaces, and the whole neighbourhood feels very well looked after and incredibly safe. The only thing I’d like is to be a little closer to the river, but the absence of huge roads and horrendous traffic makes up for it!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
local shops are magnificent

The transport links are really good, Stockwell and oval station are both within a 5 minute walk and the busses run regularly
