I like that the area is quiet and lovely place to return to after a long day's work.
I like that the area is quiet and lovely place to return to after a long day's work. There area a few restaurants with not much nightlife as this would be mostly in central London. It is convenient and ideal for families with children and young married couples. There are many upcoming new-builts. It's the kind of place where you know you will be able to settle comfortably and not have to worry about noise and safety.
SE16 is close to the Canada Water station which happens to be on the Jubilee line and Overground line. The station can get crowded during rush hour, but train come on time mostly. It is also within walking distance to Bermondsey and Surrey Quays stations. There are many buses around the area though traffic on the road can sometimes mean buses are also stuck even though there are separate bus lanes. Recently the cycleway in the area going into central London has been completed and a lot more are using bicycles instead of public transport.
Residents here are diverse and the area is peaceful and close to Central London. Mostly families and working professionals live in the area given its ideal location close to Canary Wharf and London Bridge. Relatively safe area though we have heard of the occasional pick-pockets. Noise level is low given it is a very quiet residential area.
Surrey Quays shopping centre is 5 mins away with many shops including clothing and fashion, Tesco Extra, the Range, phone repairs, Halifax and HSBC Bank branches. There's Decathlon near the shopping complex which is very convenient and popular for the local community to get sports equipment and attire. There's also a free public library close to the tube station. Restaurants in the area are not limited. There's a variety of good Italian, British, Vietnamese and Chinese restaurants within close vicinity of one another, and many cafes and pubs open for brunches or wholesome Sunday roasts. There's also a free gym and swimming pool for residents in the area during Fridays (all day), Saturdays and Sundays (after 2pm). There is also a huge park behind the neighborhood that has ping pong tables, tennis courts, playground for children and a nice running path. Residents here are diverse and the area is peaceful and close to Central London.
The atmosphere is extremely friendly, sociable, and clean.
The atmosphere is extremely friendly, sociable, and clean. The people living around the neighbourhood are kind and friendly, and importantly, considerate. There is a lot of green space around the house by the body of water, and there are always people walking by with their pets and children. Absolutely fantastic area overall.
The tube station has two lines going through it; the jubilee line and the overground. These are highly convenient, as the centre of London is 2-5 stops away, where any links to other lines can be found. A number of buses go through the station as well, which connect the area with the east side of London (eg Greenwich). Despite the pandemic, the station can get busy, but always at manageable levels.
The particular street is located near Surrey Water, which is a picturesque body of water leading to the Thames. It is extremely quiet and residential, with families and young professionals living around it mostly. There is weekly bin collection, and some free space for parking right outside the house. From my understanding the residents on the street have been living here for some years, leading me to believe they own the houses.
I live around 8 mins walking distance from Canada Water Station, where there is a groceries store, a library, and some coffee shops. A further five minute walk away is the Surrey Quays shopping centre, which contains a bigger supermarket, in addition to pharmacies, clothes shops, some restaurants, and other amenities. Overall, the local area doesn’t miss any necessary amenities at all, all of which are located within a 15 minute walking distance radius.
This is not the Garter way....
If your the type of person looking for a quiet place to settle down in this is the place for you, otherwise you’ll be left longing for more.
Transport is great when compared to other UK cities but for London is somewhat disappointing. Buses are pass by sparingly leading to wait times of 10+ minutes and the station is lengthy walk away.
The area is great visually and pretty peaceful never really getting too busy or loud, however as mentioned is lacking in terms of amenities and transport. The area is full of primarily homeowners from all corners of life ranging from singles to full families.
Not much is the area unfortunately outside of the local schools, theres a small Tesco, a few Surrey Quays and a burger restaurant. Stave Hill park has to be the most popular place in the area, its this massive green landscape full of a variety of trees and a pond. More local high street shops would really make the place popping as as it is you have to travel out a bit for non essentials.
If you are looking for peace, quiet and greenery a stones throw from the city centre then it is a great place to live

I like the canals that run from Rotherhithe to Canada water, it's a beautiful walk.

People living i the area really don't know each other very well, residents come and go but there is not a strong sense of community in the area.
