The street that I've been looking into are Collett road and Webster road which is about 5 minutes walk from Bermondsey tube station.
Anyone know of any problems around these these streets? what's the neighbourhood like?
Meh. It's not too bad, how unfamiliar with the area are you? Certainly by and large the bits of Bermondsey people call "Nice" are those North of Jamaica Road
, or West of Tower Bridge. Webster Road area? Not too bad considering it's on the wrong side of that divide. There was a fatal shooting last month but that's not SE16, that's London, it didn't sound like a random thing. I live on Southwark Park Road so...
Sometimes a bit scary with kids but not that much actual bother. The big distinguishing feature is that it's all a bit grimy, whereas in much of London the main roads are horrendous but you can turn into an amazing side street (Holloway Road is a prime example of this). That's much rarer round here so it's harder to advise of a specific area to stay away from.
