I really enjoy being so close to the city, but being in a smaller trendy community.

quite diverse and thereby engaging and affirming for all.

I moved to my area from just over a mile way four years ago and I have to say that I really enjoy both the parkland side by side a short walk to the 'Brixton Hub' and so there is nothing that I dislike about my local area. In response to describing the local area there is an upmarket, traditional as well as trendy theme - quite diverse and thereby engaging and affirming for all. Regeneration is now complete within our area with amazing outcomes. The safe, diverse and thereby engaging area means that it is a safe area for children and young families.

Transport

Only a short ten minute walk to the local bus or tube stops which easily connect to Central London with a 15 minute bus ride or five minutes via the tube network. Overground train stations are a 20 minute walk to travel to Kent - Central London or North London are every 5 or 10 minutes wait on the overground train platform. The service of all transport links are particularly reliable for travel both locally as well as throughout London and surrounding area. As with most public transport rush hour means added time to the normal journey time. Night travel is excellent via bus.

Community

Parking is well regulated from on street parking to garage spaces for rental at a reasonable daily, weekly or monthly cost. Lambeth Council as well as estate cleaning services mean that bin collection is of an excellent standard. Anti-social behaviour has been adequately addressed so we now live in our home without the stress and worry of any form of anti-social behaviour. Traffic noise is not an issue given the location three streets back from the main road so a peaceful day and night. A combination of both leaseholders as well as renters composed of wide range of students, elderly young couples and families compose our vibrant and engaging community.

Amenities

A good full range of established supermarkets and added to this is a short walk from home to Brixton with its diverse shopping and incredible markets. Added to shopping there are a large range of different restaurants and bars. Stockwell is knows a Little Portugal and so there are many small to mid range restaurants featuring this cuisine. There are many parks and open spaces which are well looked after by Lambeth Council but also by many local residents enforcing the sense of community. We are blessed by such a selection that it does not feel like local residents or visits are missing any much needed amenities.

I really enjoy being so close to the city, but being in a smaller trendy community.

I really enjoy being so close to the city, but being in a smaller trendy community. There is so much to explore nearby with two gorgeous parks, and so many lovely local cafes and bakeries. I have never felt unsafe.

Transport

The Victoria line is very close and has the most reliable tube service of any I have experienced. It gets you north of the river very fast. There is also the northern line, which I don’t enjoy as much as it is always packed in the mornings and is very hot. There is the overground too, which doesn’t come as often but gets you where you need to go. There are a large range of buses that go from both Brixton and Clapham, with decent timetables. There is a night bus that runs between Brixton and Peckham, which I use often.

Community

I don’t have a car so have not noticed any off street parking, I don’t know what the availability is or if you need permits. It’s very quiet traffic wise from the street, but there is the train tracks running on the other side which I found very noisy at first, but have gotten used to. There is a range of young family’s, and renters in this area. It feels very safe.

Amenities

There is an extensive range of local bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. In both Brixton and Clapham. Brockwell park and Clapham common are a short walk away, and are lovely green spaces. I can’t think of anything that is missing, it has everything you could need, and the transport links to get to Oxford Circus for shopping are super fast and easy.

How safe the area is and how well connected in terms of commuting options.

Transport

I have used both buses and the tube. Buses are fine and clean. Tube from Clapham Common is packed during peak hours but at least Northern is fast.

Community

Quiet, close to a lot of shops and amenities. It's also very close to many different bus stops, tube and rail stations. Some neighborhoods are more sketchy but you can just avoid walking there.

Amenities

The area has a ton of shops, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and take-aways. All are within walking distance. There are also a few big stores like Tesco and Lidl.

Good thing is that there is a mix between everything- shops (local and franchise) and parks for leisure and having a good time.

The bad aspect of it, is that it’s a busy high street but apart from that it’s amazing because we have everything around us
