Why move to South East of London

LONDON is the beating heart of the UK, and South East London is one of the best places to live in the capital.

London is a fantastic place to live. With an endless list of things to do, you’ll never get bored of the thriving city. However, when moving to London, it’s difficult to know where to base yourself. The cost of accommodation in London is a huge factor to consider when moving.

What’s more, you need to consider commuting time, environment and how close you want to be to your favourite London activities.

South East London has established itself as one of the most desirable areas in the city. Both Brockley and Dulwich are rated as two of the best places to live. This why My Cosy Homes invest in borough of Lewisham, Southwark, Bromley, Croydon and many other surrounding areas.

Why should you invest in moving to South East London?

1. Multiple Transport Routes in and Around the City

While some parts of South East London aren’t on the tube lines, this doesn’t limit access into the city. In fact, there are actually many different methods of transport: rail, over ground and buses. From Brockley, the train is approximately twenty one minutes to London Bridge. What’s more, you can sit back and enjoy the view of London as your train pulls in.

2. Variety of Accommodation

If you move to the city, you’ll be hard pushed to find a home with a fantastic garden and lots of space for a decent price. Moving out of the city opens up the property market, allowing you to invest in something bigger and cheaper. At My Cosy Homes, we not only offer a variety of house-share accommodation, but also a variety of prices to suit your budget as a renter.

3. Array of Cafe’s, Restaurants and Bars

South East London has lots of local businesses, and this includes some wonderful and unique cafe’s and bars. Have you heard about Franks’? A transformed rooftop carpark, it boasts incredible sunset views over the city. Locals and tourists alike come to marvel at the view and enjoy a drink. The New York Times’ recommend visiting South East London for its array of food, drink and differences to central London.

5. Local Markets

There’s nothing like buying your fruit and vegetables fresh from a local market. Hornimans’ Farmers Market in Forest Hill or Brockley Farmers Market, Lewisham Way offer a weekly opportunity to get your fresh veggies, meat, fish and much more.

6. Community Feel

London suburbs have a very different vibe to that of the city, as such, they can feel more like a community. Living in places like Brockley or East Dulwich means you can really get to know your neighbours and enjoy that community atmosphere.

7. Growing Economic Area

Peckham & Croydon is a great example of an ever developing area. Over the past ten years, the area has undergone lots of development, with a vibrant art and music scene emerging. With people continuing to move here, these areas have become a thriving suburb.
