parts of Walworth Road are in SE1 6 under! a big city a postcode is not always a very good indicator for safety.....crime travels!

Instead of the more trendy areas, why not try the low profile areas of SE1 like some of the side roads off St Georges Road. Incidently I leave and return for work at all hours of the day and night and use the buses around the Elephant area frequently. No matter the hour there are always lots of people about.In ten years I have not encountered any threatening situations. There is also a more 'real' community feel as the population is a lot less transient. It all depends on what you are looking for really. Good luck!

I have lived on Wellington Mills estate for 9 years and never encountered any trouble - but then the place is behind the Kennington Road police station...Try looking on Westminster Bridge, Kennington or Lambeth Roads. There is a good baker, late opening convenience stores, chemist, restaurants, pubs all close by. You can walk to the West End in 15 minutes - or there are plenty of buses and Lambeth North tube station. War museum has large open spaces to play games (not war games - I mean footie etc)

Whoops! You are quite right.

Back then (when), I lived in the Pullens flats - which are now behind the new Miami-Vice style apartments (flamingo court etc etc..). And back then you had to be HARD just to walk down the road. :o)

As to areas of SE1, I would second what others here have said about looking at areas here where you may be a little less close to an artisan rosemary focaccia, but still close to a tube.
