It's all good, transport links are excellent, the area used to have quite a bad rep, but it's undergoing renovation. Definitely on the up. Been living here for 6 months, no issues so far, about to move flat, to another in Walworth!

We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page.
We hope this helps.

Walworth is an excellent area to live in. It is especially convenient if you work in the city or Westminster. The best properties are those situated just off Walworth Road itself around the conservation area. The properties around Sutherland square go for £1.2m. The spill-over effect mean that the properties with the most potential to rise in value are in the streets nearby but still within the conservation area. Fielding street has featured in many BBC dramas and can be seen in the Richard Branson Virgin Mobile advert on youtube.
Southwark council has strong links with the film industry and according to the Southwark Film Office website "has a lot of filming going on in the streets and has been a location for some high profile films and series like 'Doctor Who' and 'Harry Potter', to gritty dramas like 'Spooks' and 'Luther', from adverts for Ford, Sainsbury's and pop videos for N-Dubz and Madonna....it all happens here."
There is a strong sense of community spirit and the local residents associations are very active. The primary schools have been rated 'Outstanding' by OFSTED.
Everyone knows about the multi-billion pound redevelopment at Elephant and Castle. Much of the marketing of these properties have been aimed at the rich buyers in emerging markets of east Asia. As an investment, now is the best time to buy before prices rocket.
If buying-to-let then rental yields are very healthy as this is a great location for tourists wanting to visit the Houses of Parliament and the Southbank.
