I live just around the corner from Pocock Street
, and I think you'll find there aren't many places in London there are as convenient as Waterloo. However, the local amenities aren't brilliant, luckily an Oyster Card can solve that problem, as it's quick and easy to get to shops etc.
You won't have a problem getting part-time work, as there are lots of bars and restaurants around, and you can also easily catch a bus to the West End, which obivouly also has lots of part-time work.
You can catch the 63, 45 or 100 from Blackfriars Road
(the bus stop is very close to the end of Pocock Street
) to Elephant and Castle, for college and shopping. The 63 carries on down Old Kent Road
, for Lidl and Tesco's, with an Asda
a bit further down. Walworth Road
and East Street marker are also good for shopping, the 45 bus will take you there.
I'm not sure if you have a car, but remeber we are in the congestion zone, so you will need to apply for a discount and a parking permit asap.
