  WHAT’S LIVING IN Deptford LIKE?

While other London neighborhoods claim they have a large artist community where people band together to create innovative music, movies, film, and traditional art forms, none of them have anything on Deptford. It has a vibrant population of creatives and students, and with that crowd has come a vast improvement in dining options, a lot more shops selling unique items, and a younger feel to the streets. This gentrification has also brought in IT professionals and financial services workers as well. And for families who venture here, the schools around Deptford are some of the best you’ll find.

Housing is still relatively affordable here and you'll find plenty of smaller flats, detached homes, terraces, and a few apartment towers.

The dining scene here is diverse and affordable. A growing Vietnames population in Deptford has resulted in some delicious Vietnamese restaurants, but you'll also find Turkish, Japanese, Indian, African, Chinese, coffee shops, pizza, and the standard British pub fare. There are also a lot of fast food restaurants around. At night, there is a solid selection of pubs to choose from.

The area is well connected through public transportation, so you won't need a car to get around here.

Deptford is bordered on the north by Surrey Quays, on the east by the Thames and Blackheath, on the south by Brockley, and on the west by New Cross.
