Area Guide by Estate Agents in Surrey Quays SE16


A rich history in market culture

Surrey Quays Area Guide SE16: Surrey Quays has transformed from an industrial site to a modern, vibrant community.

Located on the southern side of the River Thames opposite 
Canary Wharf, Surrey Quays is an area that is quickly gaining popularity and catching up with its trendy neighbours, Bermondsey and Greenwich Peninsula.

Since the 1980s, Surrey Quays has transformed from a drab, disused industrial site to a vibrant, modern neighbourhood. This thriving area has quiet cul-de-sac streets with old miners’ cottages, terraced streets with semi-detached family homes, and many converted warehouses and new-build luxury apartment blocks. Properties in Surrey Quays are located near waterways, green spaces, and the River Thames, making it a desirable location for those seeking a mix of city living and nature.

In addition to its proximity to work, Surrey Quays is a great place to live due to its abundance of parks and green spaces, including Stave Hill Ecological Park and Southwark Park. The area also has a number of leisure centres, including Southwark Athletics and Seven Islands Leisure Centre, for those seeking to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

In recent years, a growing cafe culture has emerged around Rotherhithe Street, bringing new restaurants and shops to the area and giving it a modern vibe. Surrey Quays is a top destination for those who enjoy the perks of living in the city without breaking the bank.

One of the advantages of living on the southern shore of the Thames is that the same iconic views enjoyed by residents of Docklands are available for less, and amenities are still within easy reach. This is largely because of two new stations which have plugged Surrey Quays into the mainstream transport web of the capital.

With its convenient location, excellent transport links, and range of homes and amenities, Surrey Quays is a highly sought-after area for those looking to buy or rent property in London.
