New Cross Rd, SE14 6AT

My street has everything from student accommodation blocks, council flats and owned terrace houses.

I believe the council feels the area is in need of regeneration and therefore proposed to knock down a lot of homes and shops in the area for ghastly, small, overlooked block of flats. I feel this will remove local amenities and force people to move who have lived here well over 20 years.

Transport

Great transport links. All within a 5-10 minute walk from my house I have bus stops to take me practically anywhere, from Kent to Central London. 2 train stations, taking just 7 minutes to get to London Bridge. And the DLR station in Deptford. Traffic is a big issue as it’s the main road to the A2 and cars can no longer frequent the bus lanes, but great for travelling on public transport!

Community

My street has everything from student accommodation blocks, council flats and owned terrace houses. Private parking for my house, with communal bins collected regularly. However being a main road traffic noise is rather loud, however you do get used to it and the double glazing cuts out the majority of the noise, minus the sirens.

Amenities

Living in New Cross I would say the local amenities are relatively decent, but mainly just because of the large student population of Goldsmiths. We have a lot of newsagent/off-licence type shops, along with Sainsbury’s (and a local), coffee shops (both chain and small business), laundrette and a multitude of pubs that mainly aim for students, although the New Cross Inn pulls in a wider crowd with live music. I would say that as New across is basically just a long road from Old Kent to the A2 there aren’t specifically popular areas, though having Deptford and Greenwich just down the road are popular and “upcoming”. Missing? I fish and chip shop!

The atmosphere of deptford is full of history and heritage.

The atmosphere of deptford is full of history and heritage. Nice buildings and drawings and always fun when there is market day around. It could be a bit hectic when there are quarrel going around the high street but other than that deptford is best place to live.

Transport

There are three nearby train stations. 1. Deptford Bridge DLR station which can grt to straight to lewisham or bank or canary wharf. 2. Deptford Station: there are national rail trains to london bridge every 10 mins and very convinient. 3. New Cross train station is 10 mins walk as well and from there you can get trains to central london too. Very very convenient place.

Community

Good aspect is that you can get commute to central london easily. There are always alternate options available if one of the trains are late or cancelled. The food options are amazing too and you can get fresh produce from the market as well.

Amenities

Deptford is full of little bars, little nans is where i usually spend my weekends. The vegan restaurant hullabaloo is a hidden gem, the best vegan Indian food in have had. It has got amazing Bollywood vibe to it and located in the heart of deptford high street. There is one more restaurant located just in front of hullaballoo. I usually get spicy Chinese chicken wings from them and it taste so good.

If looking for a peaceful and quiet place to leave this is area is great. Very familiar

Transport

New cross is only connected to the rest of London via overground and bus. Overground seems not enough and too slow. There are different buses that take you almost everywhere but the underground will be better.

Community

My area is residential very quiet and peaceful, personally, I am a student and this is very appreciated. We have different supermarkets for shopping what it makes me afford some money from month to month. There is no underground and transportation from here take ages, so I am using an electric scooter which gets me to the centre within 30 min.

Amenities

My area has a big park and a variety of different supermarkets but nothing remarkable. Most of the shops around are old businesses no quality services.
