Deciding where to live in London can be a bit of a minefield. With so many things to see and fun activities everywhere you look, the options for where to live are endless! But if you are looking for an area that promises excitement around every corner, you can’t do much better than the up-and-coming borough of Lewisham.

Located in South-East London, Lewisham offers great transport links, shopping hotspots, and plenty of unique attractions. Though you might not think it, the area is also ideal if you want to get in touch with Mother Nature! Here are some the reasons you should consider an apartment in Lewisham:

Plenty of outdoor spaces

For those in search of a more quiet, peaceful lifestyle, Lewisham has plenty of parks for you to exercise or simply enjoy the surrounding scenery. You can take a scenic afternoon stroll through Hilly Fields, enjoy the beautiful flowers of Manor House Gardens, or take your dog for a walk through Manor Park. If you’re happy to make a small trip, nearby Greenwich Park is an incredible spot for summer picnics, and offers sublime views of London’s skyline!

Shopping spots

If you have a passion for splurging on shopping trips, Lewisham is the perfect place to feed your addiction. The main attraction is the huge Lewisham Shopping Centre, which has all of the familiar high-street stores, including places for you to stock up on essentials for your home. But Lewisham also has something for the more discerning shopper. Deptford Market Yard has a selection of independent shops and artisan stores for you to pick up something out of the ordinary. 

Hub of art and culture

Want to engage with your creative side? Lewisham provides its residents with plenty of opportunities to learn about London’s history, art and culture. You can take part in an interesting workshop at the Lewisham Arthouse, explore a world-class art exhibition at Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, or learn about natural history and anthropology at Horniman Museum & Gardens. 

Great entertainment venues

Wherever you go in London, you’ll struggle to find an area as lively as Lewisham. If you are looking for something to do on a quiet weekend, there are plenty of venues to keep you entertained. You can catch some live music over a drink at Fox & Firkin, see a play at the Broadway Theatre, or catch the latest film releases at one of several cinemas. The O2 arena in nearby Greenwich is also a great venue to catch live musicians, get a bite to eat, or throw yourself into fun activities! 

A choice of different restaurants

If you love discovering new cuisine, you’ll feel right at home in Lewisham. Few parts of London offer such a diverse range of different foods to choose from. You could go from enjoying Turkish food at Levante one night, to tucking into terrific burgers at Zephyr Burgers, or enjoying drinks from rooftop bar Lewisham Highline. You can also enjoy all kinds of street food at Model Market, or visit one of Lewisham’s great pubs and cafes!

Brockley Market

One of the highlights of living in Lewisham is being just moments away from an award-winning farmers market. At Brockley Market, which is held at a car park, you can choose from an array of fresh, locally sourced produce, as well as tasty street food! Drawing visitors from all across London, there’s no better way to spend a chilled weekend.
