Southwark is a wide-ranging borough, with its northern districts placed in central London, and becoming more residential and suburban as it moves south.
The borough is home to a number of London’s top attractions, including Tate Modern, Borough Market and the Old Vic.
Some of its more central districts, such as Bermondsey and Walworth, have strong industrial roots, and are now benefiting from significant regeneration investment.
Southwark also has a maritime past with districts such as Rotherhithe and Surrey Quays being part of the Docklands area.
Further south, young Londoners have been drawn to edgy Peckham and arty Camberwell as trendy bars and restaurants continue to pop up in these districts.
Families are fond of villagey Dulwich and suburban Norwood, which offers lots of green space and independent boutiques.
Central districts benefit from Northern, Bakerloo and Jubilee line access, while further south residents are served by London Overground and mainline rail services to central London stations such as London Bridge and Victoria.
