Situated within the borough of Southwark, the district of Walworth forms much of the SE17 postcode area and is home to Old Kent Road, famous for being one of the cheapest properties in the game of ‘Monopoly’, and the only South London street on the board. Birthplace of Charlie Chaplin and Michael Caine, Walworth is situated to the South of Elephant & Castle and to the North of Camberwell Green.
Walworth Road runs down the spine of SE17, linking Elephant & Castle and Camberwell. Off of Walworth Road is the busy East Street, cultural centre of Walworth and home to a busy market that is open six days a week. An eclectic mix of stalls and traders sell clothing, jewellery, cosmetics, household products, confectionary, fruit and vegetables.
Walworth has a large number of bus routes that make getting around town a breeze. In addition to this there is access to the Northern Line and Bakerloo Line via Elephant & Castle at the top of Walworth Road. These transport links guarantee easy access to the surrounding areas including Peckham, Kennington, Dulwich, Nunhead, Forest Hill, New Cross and the City.
Walworth is an interesting and historical area with a varied mix of housing. Multimillion pound regeneration of the area is now underway, which will include demolition of the Heygate and Aylesbury Estates and the creation of around 2,500 new homes.
Property in Walworth and SE17 is still relatively affordable compared to the surrounding areas, and with the level of investment in the area, it’s sure to be a good long term investment.
