not sure it does. never even heard of it until last year
Interestingly, it seems he moved to the antipodes in search of a better life.
and that stabbiness sometimes leaks into denmark hill
but i dont.

it could happen at any time, in any thread.
that is the beauty of marckee's haughtiness
it is, cracking Whetherspoons on it
With increasing rental prices in city centres AND the huge rise in online fantasy gaming, I don't understand why they haven't gone under
Mind if I use that?
I was at a party and needed to grab a beer but there was a whole bunch of drunken, flirty women blocking off the fridge. So I said it and they all cleared off and in 60 seconds flat I was all on my own with complete access to the fridge. It's a lovely verbal snow plough
you damn antipodeans
it's basically camberwell with a coat of paint

and then within each Borough thread have a sub thread for each area within it. or something. someone would ruin it though no doubt.
There are good views across central London from vantage points (e.g. top storey windows) on the top of the hill to the north and neighbouring Dulwich to the south. On a clear day one can read the time on the Big Ben clockface.
That said, the hospital is quite good and I used to make good money there by participating in asthma drug trials.
*buys one day travelcard*
so it depends whether you're talking about the bit next to Camberwell, Herne Hill, Dulwich or Peckham. Don't know what area cocodaLOL is comparing it with but I've not found it to be *stabby as fuck*. I am a notorious hardman, though.
and witnessed quite a lot of bad things in the wee hours of the morning there, including in fact having the holy shite kicked out of me at 3am. it's not ace
Not sure when you lived there but I think it is changing quite rapidly, as with a lot of SE London. I'm happy to say I've not seen any stabbiness there.
and i know a couple other people in the area, seems decent to me!
theres nothing and nobody there. just a load of OK suburban type houses.
Don't tell him the names of anywhere else in south London.
There's a good train station with a pub in it, a hospital up the road, lots of nice houses off the side streets but essentially I don't know if it has a 'heart' so to speak. The thing it seems to have going for it is being vaguely near other places like Herne Hill, Brixton, Oval, Dulwich and Camberwell. Pretty expensive I think too...?
Brockley - Nice, though not as good as it thinks; has a farmers market
Honor Oak - Best curry house in London, decent houses
Dulwich - Been taken over by estate agents but proper plush
Crystal Palace - Lots of antiques and pubs, great park and view
Forest Hill - Obviously amazing as I live there
Herne / Tulse Hill - Pretty posh, not sure why. Has some pubs.
Denmark Hill - See this thread
Brixton - Gone crazy expensive now, some great restaurants. On tube.
Greenwich - Very touristy in centre but great off of it
Lewisham - Bit grotty in town but great transport
Camberwell - Bit rough round the edges
Blackheath / Lee - See yesterday
Sidcup - No mans land but uber-cheap houses
Chistlehurst - More like a village than London, but a bit far out
New Cross - Good young 'vibe' there, bit edgy. Great pubs.
Penge - Good transport, decent high street
Sydenham - I really like it, good houses, decent high street
Stretham - Just massive, no idea what bits are good. Threatens to be nice, never quite manages it.
Catford - Pretty shit but great transport links and houses
Brockwell Park area - Very nice, getting pricey
you are sadly mistaken
I DEMAND TO KNOW
I lived on Denmark Hill itself. Don't eat at the gastropub in the station; they fired me
Helps out a islamic-looking man and is told tonavoid London on a certain date.
I am thinking about moving to the area between Denmark Hill station and Peckham Rye after new year's. Any opinions on that bit of London there?
Or should I perhaps stop bothering with south of the river as I need to commute to Euston?
If you're near Peckham Rye station you're directly connected to London Bridge, Kings X, Shoreditch, Victoria, Clapham, Highbury and some place south of Peckham.
Recently moved to Nunehad and like it lots.
are the transport connections at night. lots of places that take over an hour to get back from. I am usually by bike but I found myself on the bus a few times now that it gets colder, and I tend to avoid cycling after drinking, so I am partially reliant on night buses etc.
also considering the fact that a self-imposed half-curfew in terms of getting home might make me a more responsible person though
they don't take an hour, at night probably like half an hour
If you're going to be nearer Denmark Hill, tonnes of night buses go to Camberwell Green. No distance from there really.
