have a look at elephant and castle, Kennington and Vauxhall. Fairly cheap and a walk into central London



Vauxhall is getting pretty pricey, was looking there last year and what many there deem to be a double room was ridiculous. Shoving a double bed in a box room does not make it a double room.

How would you guys compare Bermondsey to Croydon?



I've not actually lived in Croydon, but it seems a lot better than Bermondsey. There's bugger all in Bermondsey, Croydon actually has a shopping district, for example.

If Bermondsey is just going to be a crashpad for you, you're happy to go into London for anything you want, and you don't get fed up with people setting fire to cars outside your gaff and mugging your pizza guy, then go for it. We did it because it was cheap as chips and allowed us to save up a deposit on a house somewhere nicer.

Bermondsey is a fucking shit hole, I used to work in Tower Bridge studios there.

IIRC, some of the flats have rooms made of tin foil too.

I left Vauxhall in oct. Was paying 1400 for a 2 bed but that was because my rent had not gone up since start 2011. Took us ages to find something decent for the money at the time. Kennington is more expensive again except for Harleyford road which gives you good proximity to the station at vaux or oval but a.good.chance of being robbed all the same.
Walworth road is my suggestion for the best value. Very well connected and getting much better. A lot of my friends have lived there for ages and bought places to. I reckon a 2 bed for 1250-1300 there in goood cond.

Getting off at London Bridge and walking down the South Bank is a major bonus. It is getting much better than when we lived there, from what I understand but I'd aim to get a place London Bridge side of the tube if I were you!

Edit - for what it's worth, for all it's flaws, I loved living there Smile

It's not as bad as it was but still not great.

Thanks for the responses everyone. You're all doing a very good job of putting me off, although with the budget we have options are few and far between. Meh.
