Guide to Property to Rent or Houses for Sale in Camberwell


Camberwell Local Area Guide

Despite having been engulfed by London over the last century, Camberwell has always retained its own identity. This has been enhanced even more in recent months, with a focus on the local farmers market which sits in Camberwell Green. As a village that began the 18th century as a farming community, it seems only fitting that the area is able to return to its roots some 200 years later.

As well as the farmers market, ongoing work to the town centre has ensured that the area is constantly improving and as such, is becoming a more appealing location to home owners looking to relocate to the heart of London.

With so many buildings being erected in every direction throughout London, it’s never been more important for the small areas to retain a sense of community, something which Camberwell has in abundance.

The local feel that is inherent in Camberwell is tempered beautifully with the many Victorian and Georgian properties that make their home here. These buildings, coupled with the surrounding area and affordable property prices, all combine to make Camberwell great value for money for the increasing amount of home buyers who are looking to relocate in the area.

As well as the best of beautiful Camberwell property for sale & rent, the area is home to some excellent private and state schools, as well as two very notable universities, (Camberwell College of Arts and Kings College Medical School)/ This makes the area a great choice for buy-to-let investors as well, taking advantage of the wealth of local Camberwell property for rent.

For those living in the area, there’s plenty to do without having to venture out into other areas of London. Anyone interested in adding a little culture to the day can pop down to the creative workshops at South London Gallery, followed by afternoon cocktails at The Crooked Well.

However, if it’s exercise that stimulates you, table tennis in Camberwell Green, or a dip in the Victorian swimming pool may be more to your taste.

Angels & Gypsies offer Tapas and there are Sunday concerts on the bandstand in Ruskin Park. There are also community choirs, swing dance and much more, so you should never be stuck for something to fill your day.

One of the aspects that gives Camberwell its appeal is that it’s constantly improving. A £6 million redevelopment in Burgess Park has a sports centre, football pitches, tennis courts and even an area for those fishing enthusiasts in the area! There is a 5KM track if you fancy an early morning jog and a BMX track to keep the kids of the streets.
