For the noise alone, anywhere other than Borough High Street
. A friend only lasted a few months there - her flat was very hot but if she opened the windows, she could barely hear herself speak. Not only is the road noisy all day but there is a lot of noise at night. She had to contend with the Blue Eyed Maid's karaoke man coming out onto the street with his microphone singing to try and attract business! A lot of the bars on BHS have late licences - Belushi's
until 4am at weekends. Union Street
is a good bet but there are several other quiet roads around both BHS and Bermondsey Street
also worth a look. Good luck!
