Elephant & Castle: a fun London district to live, visit, rent or buy in
The central London district is described as ‘youthful and buzzy’ due to the student vibe given by London College of Communication and London South Bank University. Alongside this, the article references the appeal of the area to young professionals.
Tom Crowe, lettings manager at Harrisons Property London says: “The recent Elephant Park development very much appeals to professionals in their 20s and 30s. Students from both London College of Communication and South Bank University further supplement tenant demand.”
Based in Zone 1, Elephant and Castle has great travel links to the city via the Northern and Bakerloo Tube lines, and frequent train services to London Blackfriars (taking five minutes) and to London Waterloo East and London St Pancras International (around 15 minutes).
As well as a convenient base for city workers, Elephant and Castle offers a wide range of cultural and social experiences to enjoy.
The Homes & Property feature highlights The Cinema Museum as a key place to visit. This is housed in a Victorian workhouse where Charlie Chaplin lived as a child. It also shines a spotlight on Mercato Metropolitano, an exciting street food market and evening venue in Newington Causeway.
Known as the heartland of London’s South American community, Elephant and Castle is home to a wealth of cafés and restaurants, including Colombian diner La Bodeguita, and a series of South American-inspired bars and eateries on Elephant Road.
As well as South American cuisine, Elephant and Castle is packed with other dining options. Highlighted spots include the Prince of Wales pub where locals play Pétanque in lovely Georgian Cleaver Square, and Toulouse Lautrec, a French brassiere and wine bar in Newington Butts that has received high recommendations.
