“Great sense of community”
“I like the accessibility of transport links but the shopping centre could use some expansion and improvement.”
Nice affordable area at 10 mins from Central London
I've never felt unsafe in the area, even if I know in the past it had quite a reputation. It's a trafficked area, with not many private gardens so most pets live indoors where it's safer to be. This help keep the noise down, though, as you rarely hear barks.
There are two train stations at easy reach from the high street: Lewisham Station and Ladywell. From Lewisham Station, trains from and to London main stations are plenty all throughout the day. There is also the DLR, which brings you quickly to Canary Wharf. Buses, too, are plenty. Lewisham is in zone 2 so it takes 10 mins to reach London Bridge and 20 to Cannon Street and Victoria.
An extensive, multi-tiered car park can be found at the shopping centre, and another small one with electric car charging points is situated just next to it (this latest one is currently being used as a Covid testing centre, though). Bins are emptyed nearly daily but it depends on the area you live in. The area is, for the most part, residential so it's quiet enough.
Lewisham (SE13) has everything people living in the area need to live comfortably. There is a small but well furnished shopping centre which includes a Sainsburys', Argos, M&S, WH Smith and post office, Boots and other shops. It's at a 5 mins walk from the main train station. In the area there is also a big Tesco, a Lidl and not too far away also an Aldi. Near the station there is a well equipped sports centre with a pool and gym classes, which also skirts a small conservation area where a river passes through and green spaces can be enjoyed. At a 30 mins walk you can reach Greenwich and it's beautiful parks and observatory. Other well kept parks - at an easy to reach distance - are scattered around the area as well. The high street sees also a public library and other well known brands, as well as one of the best fresh vegetables street markets in London. Pubs, restaurants and cafes abound, too. What's missing is a cinema or theatre, which I think is being built now or will be soon. There isn't a bookshop, unfortunately, but there is a Waterstones in Blackheath.
Great sense of community
Great local atmosphere stretching all the way to greenwich, particularly in summertime with sport activities for youth and markets for adults
Great access to public transport which are all very reliable. Any issues on one transportation system is never too much of an inconvenience as there’s so many more to carry you on
Bin collections are good and so is parking availability. However a lot of school kids around 3-4pm which is to be expected
A lovely range of shops including two major super market brands, and not too far of a walk from greenwich park which is lovely in the summer. Great access to public transport and a lovely local market. Could do with some nicer family features but recently have seen a lot of improvements through community efforts
I like the accessibility of transport links but the shopping centre could use some expansion and improvement.
I like the accessibility of transport links but the shopping centre could use some expansion and improvement. There are also certain dark streets during the night and would be better off with bright but energy efficient street lights.
Transport links here in Lewisham is very abundant and user friendly, the only issue I could say is it is quite difficult with heavy traffic.
In my area, it is quite quiet and peaceful even were just moments away from the centre.
You can find all the necessities locally but there is a big potential for improvement. E.g more malls, restaurants and brand outlets.
Very quiet area with nice people around
