SE11 - up and coming, lively and inviting

I most like the transport links, both Tube and bus, and the availability of amenities. There's a good number of local pubs and restaurants, great supermarkets in walking distance (Tesco's, Sainsbury's, Lidl, Nisa Local, to name a few) and the parks are lovely and well kept. SE11 seems to be up and coming, and there's a sense of vitality in the area.

Transport

Transport links are SE11's best kept secret - it's squarely in Zone 2 with links into the centre of London. Oval and Kennington are both on the Northern Line, which adds the benefit of Night Tube service. One more stop from Oval is Stockwell, which will get you on the Victoria line, and Elephant & Castle and its Bakerloo service is a stop away from Kennington. Oval and Kennington both have escalators or lifts, making them fairly accessible. Buses are readily available, and also have excellent connections into the city centre. The Northern line is one of the more reliable and regular lines, and the stations are clean with minimal traffic. There can be some congestion around rush hour, as SE11 is a popular place for commuters.

Community

My street can attract some noise, as it's primarily made up of council houses. Our council house block is around 70% families and 30% renters, as told by our agency, but there's generally a good community spirit. Many families seem close and are chatty. Bin collections are fairly regular, and there always seems to be empty parking spots in the spaces near the flat blocks. There is some anti-social behaviour, and police have knocked at our door once or twice to warn about gang behaviour, especially once as they'd found a knife around the flat block.

Amenities

One of London's up and coming areas for young professionals and families alike, SE11 has everything you'd need, from parks to local shops to a Saturday farmer's market to excellent biking and transport links. Popular spots include Kennington Park, with its dog-friendly spaces and gem of a pizza and ice cream place in the centre, and any number of the classic pubs by the Tube stops and along the wide streets. Local favourites include the Old Red Lion, The White Bear, and always good for a tour and tasting is the Beefeater Distillery. SE11 is ideally place by the Imperial War Museum and the Thames, and has all the excitement and opportunity of a city centre with much more space and local charm.

it is a remarkable place to call your home

If you’re a working professional or a student who needs to commute into Central London, then Kennington’s good transport links will make this the ideal place for you. If you enjoy dining out and experiencing new cuisines. Kennington Park is a large, green space with historic trees, a flower garden, open area for wildlife, and a popular café.

Transport

Kennington is bordered on the north by Lambeth, on the east by Camberwell, on the south by Brixton, and on the west by Vauxhall.Kennington does not have its own train station but it is only one stop on the tube away from Waterloo where you can catch National Rail Services from.There is a good selection of outstanding Ofsted rated schools in Kennington.

Community

Cultural experiences are easy to find here as there are several theaters, art galleries, and music venues. There are a few cinema houses that show everything from blockbusters to small art films. Kennington also hosts many summer events to bring its residents together. Kennington Park is another highlight of the area. There are gardens, cafes, playgrounds, tennis courts, and athletic fields, plus plenty of space for a picnic or just lounging in the sun. With a sense of calm, beautiful properties and large parks, it is an ideal place for those who don’t want to live in the heart of the city but want to stay close enough to all the action.

Amenities

Kennington has been one of the best kept secrets in London. It is an affluent neighbourhood of stately Georgian homes and communal space.Foodies will be at home here, with lots of restaurants offering different cuisines. Vietnamese, Persian, Eritrean, Portuguese, and French fare are just some of the options. There are a ton of vegetarian and vegan options as well. For a nightcap after your meal or an evening out with friends, Prince of Wales is the most popular pub. Independent shops and farmers' markets add to the tightknit community feeling here since everyone seems to know their customers.

Transport links are good, I think there can be more bike lanes to encourage fewer people to drive if possible

Community

I live in a very noisey street for traffic (both cars and foot) however there are a lot of amenities nearby

Amenities

Good selection of different cuisines to try out and all in one area! Lovely open spaces in the summer and indoor options for the winter

Kennington is primarily residential, which is why it’s so great to value the many green spaces you’ll find.
