Areas covered by our Deptford office:

 

Brockley

Brockley is a vibrant town set between New Cross and Peckham, and which was once renowned for being among the most desirable districts in London. Brockley today maintains this charm with its wealth of beautiful Victorian houses within its sought after conservation area, green open spaces, and wide selection of local bars, eateries and delicatessens.

One of the more notable places to dine would be The Brockley Jack Studio Theatre, the history of which dates back to the 18th Century. On a Saturday morning we would recommend a stroll to Brockley Farmers Market, held weekly and offering fresh local produce, breads and other goods.

 

Canada Water

Canada Water takes its name from a freshwater lake and wildlife refuge in Rotherhithe. The Canada Water area has developed significantly over recent years and is today considered to be a great place to invest in a property. The area’s popularity is partly down to its excellent transport links. Situated in Zone 2, it has an Underground Station (on the Jubilee Line) and an Overground Station that provides direct access into vibrant Shoreditch. As well as its convenient location, Canada Water also has plenty to offer on its doorstep; for example, Canada Water Library, a host of restaurants and an abundance of slick, modern properties and converted warehouses.

Architecture, the naval college, a walk through Greenwich Park , Cutty Sark, the Maritime museum Greenwich offers so much to see and do and continues to draw tourists and locals with its friendly vibe. The art and crafts market in the town centre is a great place to relax and sample food from around the world while taking in the scenery. A new Waitrose and the re development of the Creek continue to put Greenwich firmly on the map. Great links to either Canary Wharf or central London and also a short drive to the A2 and North Kent and the coast.

 

Lewisham

Lewisham is a bustling town which was once considered to be amid Greater London’s major centres. In the 1970s The Riverdale Shopping Centre was built, which even today boasts approximately 70 shopping outlets (most of which include large chains such as Marks & Spencer) along with a variety of local shops, diners and bars servicing the prominent High Street parade. During the summer months, a successful street feast model market runs weekly.

One significant landmark to note would be to the North end of the High Street – a Grade II listed Clock Tower, erected c. 1900 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee. In recent years, Lewisham has undergone extensive regeneration (which is still ongoing), and includes the construction of the highly acclaimed Renaissance regeneration scheme.

 

New Cross

Over the last few decades New Cross has become known for its rich and vibrant arts and music scene. Notable alumni of the area’s university, Goldsmiths, include Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley, and Damon Albarn, and the university continues to produce exciting new talents. At the hub of New Cross is New Cross Road where you will find a unique selection of pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants as well as the two London Overground stations which serve the district.

Telegraph Hill is without doubt the most popular place to live with tree-lined boulevards and classic Victorian houses leading up to the renowned Telegraph Hill Park which provides residents with stunning views of the City skyline.
