I work at Guy's and in Rotherhithe, live in Shad Thames
I'd say London Bridge, Bermondsey St and the areas near the river are as safe as anywhere in London. Canada Water I only know during the day, but its pretty residential with lots of new flats, so looks fine.
Personally I've never felt worried about Bermondsey Station/Jamaica Rd, but there was a stabbing last year. The estates running south of Jamaica Rd I would not feel great about late at night on foot, but there are many worse places a bit further south.
(Cue 'what's wrong with Elephant etc'... cries)
Just my opinion.
pm me if you want any more advice re flat hunting.
