As I said in the previous thread, Bermondsey is great. Where do you live now? What are your concerns about the area?

If it is a social housing property I would grab it while you can, before it gets allocated to someone else! It is a far better area than most in London.

I guess it's what you want from an area that counts. I've only been here a bit over a year and I love it. My neighbour, who moved in at the same time, is still trying to convince herself. One thing I'd suggest is that you'd need to like it as it is, not on the basis of it's being on the up and up,whatever that means.

I love Bermondsey, having lived here for 5 years now. Bermondsey has a bad reputation in some people's minds - of who I doubt any have lived here. You have the convenience of central london a short bus or tube away, or better still a brisk walk along the Thames. Enough local shops + a few chains and supermarkets to give plenty of choice. I also think we have a fab mix of people and that gives us a true cosmopolitan feel. Wait til you experience the Latin carnivals in Southwark Park in the summer, along with many other treats. I'd rather live in a real neighbourhood that's a bit ramshackle in parts than a bland part of town. You're in London, live in London!

Which part of Bermondsey exactly? There are hugely differing areas.

But to be honest if you're in doubt to this extent, it doesn't really matter what area of Bermondsey it is, it's likely you'll be more content staying put.
