Lewisham Area Overview

Like the best parts of London it’s a bit rough around the edges, but with a good atmosphere and a great bet for a few bargains. An area with great potential, especially since the arrival of the DLR station. Value for money is still very much apparent with a wealth of good Victorian properties to choose from.

Lewisham Shopping & Entertainment

Lewisham town centre is the main area for shopping. The facilities are very good and include a large indoor shopping centre and a street market along the pedestrianised High Street. As you would expect there is a huge selection of restaurants and bars in Lewisham town centre, and many pubs in the surrounding area.

Lewisham Transport

There is no underground station but the area is served by the Docklands Light Railway (DLR), which connects with the Jubilee line, making Canary Wharf accessible in about 10 minutes. Lewisham Rail Station has direct routes to major London stations such as London Bridge, Charing Cross, London Victoria, and London Waterloo East. There are also good bus links to central London and other local areas.

Schools in Lewisham and surrounding areas include:

  • Ennersdale Primary School
  • Hither Green Primary School
  • Addey and Stanhope School
  • Deptford Green School
  • Forest Hill School
  • Christ the King Sixth Form College
