Camberwell is London's hidden jewel.
Great transport links.
A vibrant mixture of people, students and professionals, with both the art communities from Camberwell Art School and the medical bunch mixing especially at the Sun & Doves pub, a good place to check out the locals and watch the world go by.
Conveniently located with excellent travel links to all of London.
An improving area of South London, has a gritty side still which is sometimes difficult, but as with most areas of London there's grit to varying degrees. Inward investment has recently grown with a number of large new mixed (social and private) housing developments on Brownfield land. A range of trendy bars have grown up around the Camberwell Green precinct and several nice independent coffee shops have opened making Camberwell the leading home of independent coffee shops in London. A similar array of bakeries, restaurants (including a few chains) have taken positions here. There's an Art Gallery, Morrisons, Snooker Hall, Public Library, independent hardware store, and a range of other facilities making this an up and coming place. Investment and development at Kings College Hospital and the University site itself will lead to further fresh beneficial development and economic growth.
Those wishing to have hipster-laden bars on their doorsteps and the throb of city night life within 15 minutes walk should probably turn away from this area of town. It's quiet, leafy and relatively suburban with good transport links to central London and the City. Night life tends to rely on the locality of Peckham and Dulwich a mere 10 minutes walk away or bus ride down the road both offering a range of bars to keep the booze hounds contented. This area of South is a mixed bag of cultures, ages and idenities and though perhaps lacking the buzz and 'edge' of North London's Dalston, it does make up for it with it's broader range of options. It's definitely a place to consider if you enjoy your 'downtime' and quiet evenings from time-to-time rather than the constant bustle of the alternative London situated a mere 25 minute Overground ride away.
Quite a convenient and value place for those who doesn't have much budget but wanna live as near as possible to central London.
Multicultural, friendly and unpretentious.
