Massively under rated part of London

We love it here! The area is going to change alot in the next few years - lots of new building coming and the tube coming too - check out plans for the Baker loo extension. The new station will only be a stone's throw away! If you're looking for a good investment I'd highly recommend buying around here as property values will surely go up soon around here!

Transport

Every bus you could ever need right on your doorstep on old Kent rd - makes transport quite easy. Buses are so frequent that even when they're quite full you can easily just wait for another. No tube within walking distance which is annoying - bermondsey and elephant and castle both a 15 minute bus ride or so. Queens road overground is a 10 minute walk, south bermondsey overground about 15 minute walk and peckham rye overground a half hour walk. East ride into the city from from bermondsey

Community

We're on the tustin estate. it has a great school, friendly neighbours and is much quieter than you would expect looking at it. Our section is 50/50 freeholders and council tenants - not sure about the rest of the estate. The estate will be redeveloped over the next few years. You can't hear old Kent rd at all even though its quite close

Amenities

A ten minute walk away is queens rd peckham where you have a range of lovely cafes and restaurants for a nice meal. Brunch, great coffee, cocktails, fancy dinners, good pizza- you get it all at queens rd. I particularly recommend blackbird for American pancakes! For coffee I prefer well and fed - and they're nicer in well and fed as well. Peckham high street is about a 15 minute walk and it has so much to offer. We particularly love the new mall and the bussey building roof bar in summer - but theres so much to choose from. and of course if you want middle eastern food you can't beat Persepolis. Brimington park is just over the road - its scruffy but if you just need to run thr kids/dog around it's fine. Itll be redeveloped in the next few years too. Southwark park is a 20 minute walk, peckham common a 30 minute walk and the peckham canal path a 15 minute walk - so ample very nice green space a bit further.

Love my neighbourhood :)

The area is good for people looking to move long-term. There is a lot of development planned for the future. Good access to schools, jobs etc

Transport

Decent and reliable links into the city and other areas. Most convenient for cyclists but takes at least 15-20 minutes to transfer onto the underground.

Community

Minimal traffic noise as the council designs streets to avoid rat running. 100% owner occupiers in my building but there is a mix across the neighbourhood with no one dominant demographic. Annoying that the council doesn’t collect food waste from apartment blocks.

Amenities

The area is very convenient for the upmarket Bermondsey, the hip Peckham, and it has a lot of trade and big box shopping on the Old Kent Road. Eating or drinking out are well catered with the ‘Bermondsey beer mile’ and riverside restaurants.

It a great deal of need of regeneration and development

Transport

Very poor, only one train line which gets you into London and most weekend there are engineering works so you a more less stranded for transport. Buses are a waste of time, living so close to central London you will be lucky to find a bus to take to to London Bridge or anywhere else

Community

Run down area, full of empty wear houses. Walk way from south bermondsey station is not safe and looks tired

Amenities

Very little range of anything decent in the area, shops range from chicken shops, Greg’s, dodgy second hand phone shops. No restaurants, no coffee shops, nothing decent in the area

I know the area is slowly being redeveloped, so currently it looks and feels like a working progress
