Definitely good for kids unless your child loves the park which is a bit of walk away.

Living by such a body of water is a privilege few Londoners are lucky enough to enjoy.

The most appealing aspect of the area is definitely the proximity to the river Thames. Living by such a body of water is a privilege few Londoners are lucky enough to enjoy. The area can get eerily quiet at night, which can be a bit scary. Having said this, families are plentiful and the area is relatively safe. Many families have pets and you can be sure to bump into a fair few residents out walking their dog at any given time of day.

Transport

The area has decent transport links, with two overground stations and one underground stations within walking distance. However, to those residing further north-east, the journey is quite a trek. Bus routes servicing the area are plentiful, and reasonably regular. They are well maintained, and manage rush hour times well with no customer left on the curb.

Community

Parking availablity is reasonable - the majority of residents park off-road in gated car parks. Single yellows are plentiful and abundantly available during the evenings outside of restricted hours. The area is blissfully quiet and does not suffer anti-social behaviour often, although occasionally this does occur. This is a great area for families and indeed many families reside on this street.

Amenities

The local area boasts some stunning views over the river Thames, and there are a number of green open spaces situated within comfortable walking distance. Nestled in the heart of SE16 is Stave Hill Ecological Park - a beautiful and tranquil open expanse, frequented by locals and visitors to the area alike for its scenic greens and water features. Rotherhithe tunnel, only one of two river crossings (for cars) in East London is located conveniently nearby for a quick and easy trip north of the river. For those without a car, the area has fairly good transport links with two overground stations and one underground, and a number of bus routes servicing the entire area. Surrey Quays shopping centre is the local hang-out for the area youth, and a great place to grab a cheeky takeaway. The area could use a station to the North East, as all train stations are clustered to the south west.

Best London area to live

Very nice,quiet and safe area for people who dont want to party a lot, people who like nature and people who enjoy in their life. Definitelly the best London area to live.

Transport

My area is connected with city centre with Jubilee line,we have Overground and plenty of busses,even 24 hrs a day. Even we have Thames boat line which can bring us very fast in the city centre. In front of Jubilee line station in Cycle Santander bikes station which we can use very easy.

Community

My area is very nice and quiet with plenty of parking spaces, low criminal activities and no traffic noise at all. Mostly live young people and couples.

Amenities

I live in Surrey Quay area - Greenland Dock. My borough is so amazing with plenty of green and water area, green Parks and wonderfull animals ( swans, gooses, ducks...). Shopping is very easy with plenty of local shops and Surrey Quays Shopping Centre where is huge Tesco. Greenland Dock is connected with City centre with Fast boat as well. Only what is missing is local Market where you can buy organic food, fruit, vegetables, eggs... Definitelly one of the best area to live in London.

Definitely good for kids unless your child loves the park which is a bit of walk away. Safe enough to live around without being constantly in fear.

Transport

Canada Water is too busy during morning peak. My place is 20 mins walk away and the bus just isn't frequent enough to be worth the extra 1.50

Community

Quiet with traffic with not much social behaviour problem which associates with Canada Water Mixture of owners and renters, student population is limited

Amenities

Nearest shops are 10 mins walk away, with not much options of restaurants. Only 2/3 pubs and one is a Wetherspoon... Park is also quite a long walk away

fair bit of walking (10-15 mins) to get to any station or main bus route. But once you get there the links are great
