Deptford Area Guide
Missing from the tube map until recent years, often forgotten Deptford has always been popular with trendy / bohemian types and is now gaining a steady reputation as “South London’s Shoreditch”. Canary Wharf’s commuters are starting to discover that the transport links here are better than first meets the eye
Where are we?
Deptford sits at the northern edge of the London Borough of Lewisham looking across the Thames at the Isle of Dogs. Neighboured on either side by Greenwich and Surrey Quays and even sits on the London Marathon route
Why should I buy here?
The previously untapped potential in Deptford is finally being realised. The new developments at Deals Gateway and Greenland Place along with the upcoming Timberyard & Convoys Wharf will see new amenities coming into the area, while seemingly retaining its South East London charm
What can I buy here?
Deptford enjoys a good mix of properties to suit all budgets. The Brookmill Conservation Area offers traditional mid Victorian terraces, while there are modern serviced apartments along the river and clustered around Deptford Bridge station. There are also smaller post-war apartments on the western side offering entry level opportunities.
Where can I go out?
Deptford Market Yard is the new heart of Deptford’s nightlife. A new collection of independent bars, eateries, shops and creative spaces occupying the arches of Deptford station’s former carriage ramp. Notable offerings are Little Nan’s Bar and the Tapas Room. Nearby the ironically names Job Centre is the latest offering from Antic Pubs and the Black Horse on Evelyn Street serve great quality sourdough pizzas and craft ales.
