I have lived on shad thames for 6 years and have never had any problems at all.
I often walk around the area very late at night and have never felt unsafe in doing so.
I actually feel happy walking home from London Bridge station on my own late at night, it is well lit and you often see lots of the More London staff around.
I have been mugged and injured in another part of london, so naturally feeling safe is important to me.
The only time I can remember feeling intimidated or slightly nervous was when David Blaine performed his glass box stunt on Potters fields and late some nights it did attract gangs of teenagers who were unpleasant and shouted at people, threw bottles etc, but thats the one occasion.
I would recommend Shad Thames
living to anyone, its a lovely little area with a sort of community feeling, I hope you decide on moving here.
