“Amazing parks; lots of activities; diverse community and a place where everyone can feel at home”
“There are many primary and secondary schools to attend”
Every need is fulfilled creating an environment thats more closer to home no matter where you're from!
The area is very upmarket and trendy and isn't in need of any regeneration yet as they have already come, increasing the number of affordable properties. The area is very suitable for disciplined children but like any other place there are still threats.
Brixton is home to the brixton tube station providing easy access to the Victoria line aswell as other major lines. Furthermore there is an abundance of busses heading to and away from central London.
Anti-social behaviour can be apparent in certain places of the community. Many people here are rentors and families. There's is a very consistent bin collection. And never too much traffic noise.
The range of and quality of local shops are immensely diverse and very cultured, ranging from different Caribbean specialties to Korean restaurants around the corner. Every need is fulfilled creating an environment thats more closer to home no matter where you're from! Brixton main road is also extremely useful as it harbours many stores and restaurants ranging from H&M to M&S. Furthermore, easy access to public transport such as busses to Marylebone and the brixton tube station are commodities that are often over looked but are significantly useful, especially for someone who has to travel to work or university. Brixton food markets such as brixton Village and electric avenue are both monumental in there historical value (electric avenue being the first street to use electric lights in the UK) aswell as there usefulness in providing access to a range of different stores. There isn't much missing as brixton is home to many primary and secondary schools aswell as local areas such as parks that are always a 15 minute walk away or the brixton library to go do some extended work, perhaps even stop by next door to watch a movie at the Ritzy cinema . However, what I've noticed in my time living here is that there isn't much of a bond between different groups or the community. Something which only the development of society can improve. In conclusion, brixton is a marvelous area with diverse and bustling culture and access to a vide variety of many stores, restaurants and kind people.
Amazing parks; lots of activities; diverse community and a place where everyone can feel at home
I most like how everything I need is close together, the shops, the park and the train station are all very close. The lido in the summer is could be one if my favourite things; I love how theres just so much to do, but unfortunately, to an expense. The area is very multi cultural and diverse; there are people from all places and all ages. You can be who you are and not be judged as everybody is used to diversity. "Off The Cuff" is a trendy bar with live music that hosts No ID where local bands play mostly rock while teens and older dance and have a mosh pit while adults stand at the back at watch. It's extremely fun and definitely worth the £4 needed to enter. One bad thing is that there are thieves and quite a few homeless people. A guy actually told me he was planning on stealing my bike before I came to unlock it. He walk around Herne Hill and upper Tulse Hill with a balaclava rested on his head like a hat and sells stolen bikes to locals. So if you have a nice bike, bring a good lock. Overall, I love this area and plan on living here as long as possible.
Herne hill has it's own station with the southeastern line and Thames link. The trains are reliable and the platform is well cleaned and in good condition. Many buses pass through Herne Hill although there can be terrible traffic sometimes and when there is, your better off walking or taking the train. The best way to get around herne hill is on a bike or scooter. It's a life saver being able to skip traffic and get anywhere you want with reliable timings. Overall, theres good public transport only that the buses are slow when there is traffic which is usually on Saturdays.
My road is quite quiet mostly, with occasional wails from foxes in the night, bin collectors come once a week and there is decent parking availability. Most of the people that live on my road are extremely friendly. There are many couples and families and we have a street party most years where we shit off the street with the council's permission and everyone gets together and socialises with food and lots of activities where kids can play and meet other kids that live on the street. Anyone and everyone is welcome.
Herne Hill has absolutely everything an area needs. It has: A train station, mini supermarkets, corner shops, pubs, restaurants, a huge park, a farmers market every Sunday, barbers, a post office, a range of schools nearby, bakery shops as well as butchers and a lot of other interesting businesses. The is a bar with live music and a hidden stage beside it which hosted many events before covid called Off The Cuff. Brockwell park has it's own bmx track along with tennis courts, a cafe, a paddling pool, a flower garden to relax in, a playground and even a BETTER(a company) gym, and a large swimming pool in The Brockwel Lido. On sunny days the park and herne hill centre can get very busy but it's what you would expect in London anyways. The one thing that it's missing (but is definitely not an essential) is an indoor skate park. It would give the young generation a good reason to get outside, find passions and excersize even when it rains.
There are many primary and secondary schools to attend
The easy access to public transport is very beneficial as it let's me get to work aswell as pick up my children from school without having to deal with traffic. There are many primary and secondary schools to attend
Its easy to get to a bus stop that will take you to main brixton. And even easier to get into central London aswelk as anywhere else. There is also a tube station near by and an overground thats useful. Rush hour isn't too bad as the trains don't get packed but there can be traffic some times
There is never that many parking spaces depending on where you live or how long your staying. Bin collections can be improved as people dump there large rubbish in corners sometimes.
Shops that are located at brixton main road are exceptional as there is many retail stores such as TKmaxx etc. Restaurants however aren't as classy or impactful. Bars are good as usual. And local areas such as Windrush Square attract skaters trying to pull off movies
local shops are magnificent
