It’s quite a quiet area which as a student isn’t great but is good for families.

Long Ln, SE1 4AY

The area is quite upmarket due to the proximity to London Bridge and the Shard.

My area is generally quitw safe in the daytime but during the nighttime, there are quite a lot of homeless people around the area and pubs are nearby. This, as a woman, makes me feel unsafe at night as I have been exposed to threatening behaviours while walking home from tube stations. The area is quite upmarket due to the proximity to London Bridge and the Shard. Due to lack of playground facilities it may be hard for some families with children, but there is green space around for dog owners to use if wished - just a bit unsafe.

Transport

The buses in the area are frequent, London Bridge station, which has both Jubilee and Northern lines, is 10 minutes walk, Borough station is a 3 minute walkand has the Northern line, therefore I think transport in my area is generally good. The tube gets quite crowded during rush hour and the carriages are always quite grimy but on the whole it's a decent commute.

Community

There is limited parking availabilty on the streets, there is quite a lot of traffic noise (sirens especially) and sometimes there is loud antisocial behaviour which disrupts sleep (people screaming in the street) Renters mostly live in the area as house prices in this area are high and the area has a high concentration of students due to it being near King's College London. There are not a lot of families around - mostly couples or couples with very young children (toddlers)

Amenities

There are a huge range of restaurants, with Borough Market being a stone's throw away, fast food outlets e.g. kfc being very nearby and lots of street stalls nearby too. There are quite a few open spaces - one near southwark bridge road, one on borough high street and tabbard gardens but I do not regularly frequent these as they are seen to be "dodgy" and be crime hotspots. There are quite a few pubs nearby which are always quite busy. Prices are also reasonable. There are many supermarkets nearby although there is a lack of large ones. There is a post office that is quite busy usually, and I am very close to both Borough Market tube station and London Bridge station. Borough market is always popular, there is a particular falafel stand that is popular near London Bridge due to its quality and cheap price (£3.5 for a wrap) and Dover Castle, a pub, is very popular among students for their cheap drinks.. There is a gym, post office, pharmacy etc. all very close so I do not think any amneties are missing. However, it would be nice if the open spaces were places not so associated with crime and drug use.

we could have more parks in the Area as it would be a benefit for families and for those who want to do exercise.

Transport

in terms of means of transportation theres a nearby underground station which is the 'borough' station which is part of the northern line. Also the buses here are excellent as they come on time and not to stuffy.

Community

parking is always fine over, as when the kids go to school there is always a place to park up and also theres plenty of space for cyclists to ride around. over here there are mostly families that live here.

Amenities

in terms of the range and quality of local shops, restaurants, bars an open spaces there are a nice range of places to eat like 'the roe buck, bad moon cafe and also a Sainsbury's local.

Amenities

There is a good range of local shops bars and restaurants due to being a student area. More nightclubs in the areas would be good
