SE11 - up and coming, lively and inviting

I most like the transport links, both Tube and bus, and the availability of amenities. There's a good number of local pubs and restaurants, great supermarkets in walking distance (Tesco's, Sainsbury's, Lidl, Nisa Local, to name a few) and the parks are lovely and well kept. SE11 seems to be up and coming, and there's a sense of vitality in the area.

Transport

Transport links are SE11's best kept secret - it's squarely in Zone 2 with links into the centre of London. Oval and Kennington are both on the Northern Line, which adds the benefit of Night Tube service. One more stop from Oval is Stockwell, which will get you on the Victoria line, and Elephant & Castle and its Bakerloo service is a stop away from Kennington. Oval and Kennington both have escalators or lifts, making them fairly accessible. Buses are readily available, and also have excellent connections into the city centre. The Northern line is one of the more reliable and regular lines, and the stations are clean with minimal traffic. There can be some congestion around rush hour, as SE11 is a popular place for commuters.

Community

My street can attract some noise, as it's primarily made up of council houses. Our council house block is around 70% families and 30% renters, as told by our agency, but there's generally a good community spirit. Many families seem close and are chatty. Bin collections are fairly regular, and there always seems to be empty parking spots in the spaces near the flat blocks. There is some anti-social behaviour, and police have knocked at our door once or twice to warn about gang behaviour, especially once as they'd found a knife around the flat block.

Amenities

One of London's up and coming areas for young professionals and families alike, SE11 has everything you'd need, from parks to local shops to a Saturday farmer's market to excellent biking and transport links. Popular spots include Kennington Park, with its dog-friendly spaces and gem of a pizza and ice cream place in the centre, and any number of the classic pubs by the Tube stops and along the wide streets. Local favourites include the Old Red Lion, The White Bear, and always good for a tour and tasting is the Beefeater Distillery. SE11 is ideally place by the Imperial War Museum and the Thames, and has all the excitement and opportunity of a city centre with much more space and local charm.

It's a perfect relaxing spot to live

I really love Oval. It's a perfect relaxing spot to live. I feel like it's not nearly popular enough for it's great location and atmosphere.

Transport

SW9 has buses that go into central London and is also on the Northern Line. Only downside is if you want to go into central you have to change at Kennington. If you work in central London, the buses are much quieter than the tube.

Community

Mostly families but a few houses have some annoying loud parties sometimes. I get the feeling most people rent, but there look like a few settled people. No anti social behaviour or traffic noise. It's London so you get a few incidents, but generally it's great.

Amenities

The area is quiet but there are a few really special spots. Kennington park is beautiful in the summer. It's so lovely to see all the families out and kids having birthday parties. Cable Cafe is a great spot to get a tea in during the day, or a cocktail in at night. Adulis is an incredible Eritrean place that's just down the road from me. We also have a new Arepa place! Oval is a really fun place that's got tons of influences from different cultures.

I would ‘ve like to know that there is not much outdoor activities for children

Transport

The transport is excellent because we live near Vauxhall tube station .There is overground trains busses to every part of the city

Community

The good thing is that we live in Vauxhall and is very very central it is only about 45 min walk to London eye the bad thing is that it is not very safe at night

Amenities

The local shops are good but not too many.We need more parks and open spaces for children and everyone to exercise outdoors

Kennington is primarily residential, which is why it’s so great to value the many green spaces you’ll find.
