SW9: what it looks like south of Oval station!

My area is not too crowded, and lovely and modern, however my street and those directly surrounding it are all quite similar looking. Further afield, houses are full of a lot more character, but the proportion of new builds near me mean we lose some of that. I see children out and about all the time, and the copious number of schools nearby is testament to the neighbourhood’s family friendly status. I have never felt unsafe in the area surrounding my home.

Transport

The Northern line available from Oval and Kennington stations is hugely convenient, and never too horrendously busy even at the most crowded times. Buses are regular and comprehensively service all of the major roads in the area. However, the availability of widespread safe cycle lanes means that is also a popular choice for residents commuting in the area. Vauxhall is a slightly further but still manageable walk away. I have yet to have any troubles with the timetabling of bus routes either which is a nice change!

Community

The area is a mixture of renters and owners, families and students, but all are incredibly respectful of one another and the neighbourhood feels both friendly and safe. The bin collection is very efficient, and underground garbage storage means the area remains very pretty even just before collection day. My street and the surrounding roads are very quiet given our proximity to both Brixton Road and New Camberwell Road, which is a huge relief. The only problem is parking availability, which I usually find to be quite limited.

Amenities

The Oval / Kennington area to the North is a lovely bustling hub of great pubs and restaurants whilst simultaneously boasting good transport links. The Kennington is our local, and we love it there! Also nearby is Camberwell, similarly full of useful supermarkets and a huge range of great food from all kinds of cuisines. Local parks like Kennington Park and Myatt’s Fields Park break up the busier areas with quiet green spaces, and the whole neighbourhood feels very well looked after and incredibly safe. The only thing I’d like is to be a little closer to the river, but the absence of huge roads and horrendous traffic makes up for it!

I truly love Camberwell, Brixton and Peckham.

I love the area. I truly love Camberwell, Brixton and Peckham. It's a nice spot where rent is not too high yet it's still easy to get to central London. Local markets give a nice sense of community and make it easy to feel like you were in the middle east, East Asia or just in the Uk. I like the variety and diversity in this place. It's not the most perfect area for a young family with little kid but it's perfect for a student like me.

Transport

It's easy to get to the other side of the bridge but from the place I live it takes 15 minutes to get to the closest bus stop that goes through London Bridge, Waterloo etc. It's easy to get to Victoria and Elephant and Castle though. The closest tube station is 15 minutes away which is not too bad.

Community

The area is nice but could be cleaner. People tend to be quiet and friendly, however, there are sometimes people who tend to be noisy and interrupt the silence. Generally, it's not too bad

Amenities

Local shops are nicely modernized but there are also some spots of old and not tidy stores. Camberwell Green is a very popular spot, being next to Brixton it is easy to find popular and trendy places.

The area has a family feel to it. I feel it is relatively safe, but with any area of London, there can be problematic parts.

Transport

Very close to the northern line which is very convenient. Plenty of busses to Brixton/Vauxhall for further transport links. Traffic however can be very busy at all times.

Community

The street is very pleasant to live on with nice Victorian houses. There is an ambulance station nearby which can be problematic as the sirens are loud in the middle of the night

Amenities

The wider area (Brixton, Camberwell, Stockwell) has a great variety of bars and restaurants. The immediate Oval area is a bit limited - there are a handful of places but I'd like to see more

The area feels safe, and hasn't been overly regenerated as to lose its personality.

Both Camberwell and Brixton are close to us so there is a good mix of bigger shops and chains like Lidl or Marks and Spencer, as well as smaller local shops too.
