Southwark is nestled on the South Bank of the Thames, and among its luxury riverside apartments and ultra-modern offices, are some of London’s biggest icons. This area is rich in culture, architecture and entertainment, charming millions of visitors (and residents) each year. For the best scenery, criss-cross one of the bridges that straddle the river, including London Bridge, Tower Bridge and Millennium Bridge. All are a joy to stroll or drive over, thanks to sweeping views of the water, and the buildings that chart hundreds of years of the capital’s history. Read on to discover developments that are rated the best places to live in Southwark. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Southwark.
Good: vibe, good, bars, transport
Bad: crime, becoming very expensive, building management very poor
Please review your development:
Design is good apart from how disorganised the post room is and how poor the concierge staff are (apart from a few, such as Luke!)
Service charge is much higher than when we moved in 4 years ago and we are charged for a lot of things we don’t use (such as gym and gardens)
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
How think of the walls are as we never hear the neighbours apart from via the front door as we are near the lift
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
came into the flat very swiftly when we shared the sighting of a mouse.
The floorboards are terrible and have holes all over them
