It's defo an excellent place to live if you've got the ££ to fork ou
It's defo an excellent place to live if you've got the ££ to fork out, I don't know if I'd live here unless I was sharing the costs with someone, but it's nice to have so many attractions so close by, even if COVID did kinda put a stop to it this year, but luckily I've been living in this are of London for a fair bit, so I know that it's bound to get better (though hopefully everyone doesn't move out of London by the time this whole thing blows over).
I used to switch busses at rush hour before Covid, but ever since.. It's just been bus full, bus full, bus full, constantly! So I've invested in a bike, and have just been scooting around town ever since. The cycle routes are brilliant, and the cycle superhighways really are pretty awesome once you start using them, not something you'd care about if you weren't a cyclist. Some cycle routes are seperated from the road with ballards and the like, and it gives you some nice peace of mind that you won't get run over by some half awake businessman in a beemer in the morning, but others are not, which is where you often need to keep an eye for your fellow driver (and your fellow cyclist). Overall probably the best way to get around London, definitely the fastest, and most definitely the healthiest!
Lots of restaurants nearby, and a whole load of delivery apps will get it to you pretty quick so definitely a nice place to be if you're too lazy to cook like me! It's a pretty nice area to be on, me and my 3 housemates definitely enjoy it, and being that I occasionally WFH it definitely hasn't disappointing to not have to leave the house at 7.30 each day.
Oh man where do I begin! There's just no end to the amount of excellent, and often PACKED restaurants around south bank , and especially along the Thames, nightlife could definitely do with some improvement on this side of town, but there's so many epic markets and shops to visit in the day like the Maltby, and Borough that are a pretty short walk away that it more than makes up for it!
Elephant and Castle in general is a lovely place to live, plenty to do for both young and old.
There are plenty of schools in the area that have outstanding from ofsted. For the younger crowd pursuing higher education you do have London Southbank University. Elephant and Castle in general is a lovely place to live, plenty to do for both young and old. If you do feel like a proper night out, Central London is not far.
You have the northern line that goes through the area. The closest station is Elephant and Castle, the train comes quite often, its not the modern trains so be prepared in the summer when it gets a little packed. If you don't wish to go by train you have a plenty of buses to get you wherever you want. Around the area you have 7 day buses and 3 night buses and they can take you to Charing Cross, Russell Square, Tottenham Court Road, Kings Cross and Euston. Really good for those that commute.
The house/flat prices for both buying and renting can be quite high so be prepared for that. There are more couples and single people living in the area. You don't really hear much for anti-social behavior in the area, it feels pretty safe to me. Just be aware that there are more cycle and bus lanes be put in place, you don't want to get caught out. Parking wise, its fine for those that live in the area, just for your guest they will have to come and visit on the weekends (restrictions only apply Monday - Friday)
Cute coffee shops are a few bus tops away. But it is totally worth it. Elephant and Castle has a very big Latino population and once you cross the A3 road you get this great restaurant called "La Bodegita". If you don't fancy that you also have the shopping centre where you have a variety of shops, there you can grab a coffee with a friend. Parks wise not so many as in other boroughs but you do have Geraldine Mary Hamsworth Park where the Imperial War Museum is situated.
I like the number of local businesses in the area
I like the number of local businesses in the area (and the lack of chain restaurants etc). There is a lot to do, and the area has been regenerated to some extent, which has made the area more desirable
Good bus links to central London, similarly for the underground, and good train links to London, Kent and Bedfordshire
The car parking is only on one side, but is generally respected. It is on a cycle route, but as such it isn't too loud. There is a mixture of people who live on the street
The local amenities are diverse with a variety of leisure, food, and drink places. Although due to the closure of the shopping centre, some of these amenities may be lost for good - or for a while until a new area is built.
It is quite trendy since it’s in Southwark.

I am very fond of the rejuvenation projects ongoing in the area, it definitely looks needed with some buildings and such being extremely run down.
