I'm a student, and I'm in the very privileged position that I am looking to buy a one-bed sometime this year. As I'm due to move soon, I'd like to first rent in one of the areas I'm considering buying, and that includes Bermondsey, but I've never lived or spent much time south of the river, so I would appreciate any opinions on the area. Specifically, I've got a flat viewing in Cadbury Way, just off Yalding Rd, and I wonder what people think of safety- I'll be a woman living alone, and in terms of comfort level, I've lived in Holloway, Golders Green, and Archway and found that absolutely fine, but don't enjoy wandering around Finsbury Park or Tottenham. (As you can see, I'm a north Londoner at heart, but I'll be starting a job in the City so it doesn't make sense staying North, location or price-wise.) Any comments would be appreciated!
