London is the beating heart of the UK, and South East London is one of the best places to live in the capital.
Our South East London estate agents share their top 7 reasons why you should move there.

London is a fantastic place to live. With an endless list of things to do, you’ll never get bored of the thriving city. However, when moving to London, it’s difficult to know where to base yourself. The cost of accommodation in London is a huge factor to consider when moving.
What’s more, you need to consider commuting time, environment and how close you want to be to your favourite London activities.

South East London has established itself as one of the most desirable areas in the city. Both Peckham and Forest Hill are rated as the top places to live in London. This is why Fish Need Water estate agents offer property in Forest Hill, Dulwich, Peckham, Camberwell, New Cross and many other surrounding areas.

Why should you invest in moving to this area? Our knowledgeable team of Estate agents in South East London explain why you should consider a move:

1. Multiple Transport Routes in and Around the City

While some parts of South East London aren’t on the tube lines, this doesn’t limit access into the city. In fact, there are actually many different methods of transport: rail, overground and buses. From Forest Hill station, the train is approximately twenty minutes to London Bridge. What’s more, you can sit back and enjoy the view of London as your train pulls in.

2. Variety of Accommodation (Our South East London Estate Agents Top Reason!)

If you move to the city, you’ll be hard pushed to find a house with a fantastic garden and lots of space for a decent price. Moving out of the city opens up the property market , allowing you to invest in something bigger, cheaper and in a different environment. Have you looked at our available property in our Camberwell estate agents office? We not only offer a variety of accommodation, but also a variety of prices to suit your budget as a buyer or renter.

3. Great Area for Children

Bringing up children in London can be expensive. There are so many different schools to choose from. You also want somewhere they can play outside and feel safe. Victorian houses and tree-lined streets mean our Forest Hill estate agents frequently have families coming to look at properties. If Forest Hill doesn’t suit your needs, Peckham also boasts having the Peckham Plex Cinema, where tickets are only £4.99! A great and inexpensive way to keeps the kids happy on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

4. Array of Cafe’s, Restaurants and Bars

South East London has lots of local businesses, and this includes some wonderful and unique cafe’s and bars. Have you heard about Frank’s? A transformed rooftop carpark, it boasts incredible sunset views over the city. Locals and tourists alike come to marvel at the view and enjoy a drink.

The New York Times recommended visiting South East London for its array of food, drink and differences to central London.

5. Local Markets

There’s nothing like buying your fruit and vegetables fresh from a local market. Hornimans Farmer’s market in Forest Hill offers a weekly opportunity to get fresh veggies, meat, fish and much more.

6. Community Feel

London suburbs have a very different vibe to that of the city, as such, they can feel more like a community. Living in places like Forest Hill or East Dulwich means you can really get to know your neighbours and enjoy that community atmosphere. The perfect environment for families. Visit our East Dulwich estate agents to find out more about the properties available.

7. Growing Economic Area

Peckham is a great example of an ever developing area. Over the past ten years, the area has undergone lots of development, with a vibrant art and music scene emerging. With people continuing to move here, Peckham has become a thriving suburb. It also means our Peckham estate agents are frequently kept busy (which is a good thing)!
