I'm planning to move to London, hopefully somewhere close to London Bridge and flats that are within my budget are usually in Elephant & Castle or Bermondsey. I found a really nice flat around the Old Kent Road/Massinger St corner and I have been reading about the OKR for safety issues. I found that it's a busy road, does that mean a lot of noise from cars speeding at night? Is that part of OKR fairly safe for single female coming back home between midnight - 2am? I have seen the area and it seems very nice.

Many thanks for your help!

Hi, I think I live in the bock you were looking at and it's lovely here. Yes it's safe - I have 2 teenage daughters and they come home on their own at night. Always lots of people around, so you feel safe. Really handy for central London and the neighbours are nice(!)We don't notice the noise - all the flats are double-glazed and LIDL is brilliant. Come and join us.
