A quiet suburb with pretty roads and period appeal

"Hop on a train from New Cross Gate Station direct to Shoreditch and stations close to the City and Canary Wharf."

Divyesh Bhanderi

"The views from Nunhead Station is spectacular on a clear day - you can see all the way to Canary Wharf."

"Nunhead has got to be the best place to live if you want to be close to the city, close to lots of green spaces, and close to lovely pubs and shops. Nunhead has a real mix of people with newcomers keeping the area vibrant. Sunday lunch at the Ivy House Pub with a jazz big band is a must!"
