NOT FOR THOSE WHO PREFER TO STAY in Chelsea and Kensington - just to mention BEFORE you book in order to avoid any misunderstanding later when you reviewing and starring my place, but for most people it's a great central location to explore London, with a mix of cultures.Vibrant and culturally diverse, this neighbourhood has its own distinct character. My flat is within standart council building on the border of London´s zone 1, in the heart of the city! It's a quiet place in Walworth, between Camberwell and Elephant & Castle, in the London borough of Southwark, south of the river. Walworth is a cheap-and-cheerful, multi-cultural part of London close to the centre with excellent transport links.

I live in the flat myself therefore if you need any help i am there.
Vibrant and culturally diverse, this neighbourhood has its own distinct character. Not for those who prefer to stay in Chelsea and Kensington, but for most people it's a great central location to explore London, with a mix of cultures. Elephant and Castle itself is an interesting part of London. Currently in the midst of a £3bn regeneration, which is seeing large portions of it rebuilt. It is home to the world famous Ministry of Sound nightclub, as well as the equally good Corsica Studios which offers the best in underground contemporary dance music. Burgess Park with a lake and outdoor gym is just 5 min away. In terms of amenities, there is the Elephant and Castle shopping centre is across the road, which has two supermarkets, a pharmacy, dry cleaners and various smaller shops selling a range of goods.
TRANSPORT From here you can go to Victoria, the main station in London, in just 15 min by bus. 10 minutes on the bus to Waterloo or London Bridge, 15 minutes to Trafalgar Square, 25 minutes to Oxford St. Easy access to the West End and the square mile (St. Paul's, the Gherkin etc.), and on several night bus routes. That´s really good for those who need to save time. The tube and railway station (Elephant & Castle) are just few blocks away ( 13 min by bus and 20 min by walk) from the flat and all central London sights are reachable by bus which you can take just outside the building. That´s a great advantage because the tube fare is more than double the price! This neighbourhood is perfect for transport because you can go from here anywhere in London and very quick! It is hard to find anywhere in London better connected to public transport than Elephant and Castle. As well as two tube lines, and a mainline station less than 100m from the flat, there are a whopping 29 bus routes which can bring you to all corners of London! The main railway terminals of Waterloo and London Bridge Stations are both a mere 15 minute walk away, meaning the flat is ideally located to make day trips outside of London.
