Summer weekends tend to bring their share of drunken noise/shouting on most streets, but that stopped around September time and things have been very quiet up until recently when the pubs became full of festive drinkers.
There's a fair amount of road noise though. depending on which street you choose. The ones which go down towards the river (e.g. Curlew Street
) aren't wide enough for lorries/Ocado vans to turn so there's a lot of beeping as they reverse out instead. It's not constant, but the noise starts up pretty much every day at 7am and stops at 10/11pm ish.
We looked at a flat in Ginger Apartments where the bedroom window opened onto Curlew Street
. The current tenants said they hated living there because it was too noisy, so choose carefully and spend some time outside getting a feel for the area.
Having said that, overall given the location I think it's pretty quiet here.
