“Great are with Borough Market very close and lovely shops around.”
“The atmosphere is classical and it's a very typical place in London.”
However, being so central, it is a very walkable area where the streets are clean and the environment is welcoming
I love the amenities in the area: the number of supermarkets, local convenience stores and bars in the area have been such a blessing. There could be more restaurants near Southwark however. The high incidence of anti-social behaviour is also rather off-putting.
I live in between Southwark (jubilee) and Borough (northern), these two train lines are rather convenient to get to just about anywhere in London. Again, it helps that this area is quite centrally located. The nearest bus station with the most number of buses is, however, a walk away. There is also a lack of night buses which is a shame
Many university students live in my area so the area is bustling all throughout the day. The area is rather clean, there is not much traffic noise and there are adequate parking spaces. There are a high number of cases of anti-social behaviour with phone mugging and catcalling being a norm.
In my area of SE1, there is a local supermarket (Co-op, Sainsburys, Tesco) almost at every corner- extremely convenient and a huge plus for residents in the area. On top of this, there are numerous post offices, 24 hour convenience stores, and bars. One of the more popular local areas would be Borough for the famous Borough Market where patrons buy extremely fresh produce, an array of all kinds of cheese and of course, a takeaway box of British Fish n Chips. Walking a little bit past the market would also bring you to an outdoor seating area in London Riverside, close to the River Thames, giving you a marvellous view of Tower Bridge. The area is sadly lacking in large green spaces. However, being so central, it is a very walkable area where the streets are clean and the environment is welcoming so it is still an area that encourages people to get outside despite the lack of a park, for instance. It would also be great if the area could have more asian supermarkets. The one i currently know of in the area is Oseyo in Waterloo, however, it would be nice if there could be more in the area, especially since London is such a diverse city!
Great are with Borough Market very close and lovely shops around.
I really like going to Borough Market very early in the morning when there is no tourist or much people to get the fresher pieces of fish.
With London Bridge on one side and Southwark on the other, transport is very easy. Not only into Central London but also to the countryside.
Great are with Borough Market very close and lovely shops around. Sometimes however it could get really noise, specially at night during weekends.
Very central location with plenty of trendy restaurants to choose from and many drink places you enjoy.

There are many metro and rail stations like London Bridge and Borough Station. Besides that, blackfriar station is also a nice choice.
To be honest, this is an area full of office buildings, so most of the people on weekdays are professionals and a lot of students studying in KCL.
I've been living near Borough Station for a long time. There are only a small Sainsbury and a little Tesco that is really inconvenient for me. As for the gyms, that's is great since a lot of people working in the bankside.
it feels overwhelming with so many people all day long
