New Cross Area Guide
New Cross is an area very heavily influenced by Goldsmiths Art College. A vibrant, eclectic mix of bohemian cafes, trendy bars and boutique shops. If any part of South East London were to scream ‘Camden’, this would be it. But far from being all about students, many well-heeled families have made the area their home thanks to the quality of housing and surprisingly good transport.
Where are we?
New Cross is the north-westernmost point in the Borough of Lewisham, sandwiched between Peckham to the west and Deptford to the East. The Old Kent Road ends at New Cross and the A20 starts here. You could say all roads lead to New Cross.
Why should I buy here?
New Cross Gate station is due to have a Bakerloo Line station as part of the regeneration of the retail park site, while in the North of New Cross, plans are afoot for an Overground Line station on Surrey Canal Road
What can I buy here?
Large parts of New Cross are conserved period homes. The Hatcham conservation area consists of traditional, early-Victorian terraces while grander, mid-Victorian semi-detached townhouses can be found covering the north face of Telegraph Hill. These are popular with families as they offer a size rarely found this centrally. Smaller post-war and 1990s built flats offer entry level opportunities on the border with Deptford.
Where can I go out?
New Cross has many well-kept and busy pubs catering for all tastes. The New Cross Inn is a popular live music venue, whereas the New Cross House, Rose Inn or White Hart offer good quality relaxed dining. Maybe catch a movie at the Curzon Cinema then head to the Venue nightclub, which attracts revelers from all over London and is right on New Cross Road.
How about going out for a meal
The Prince Albert is a offers quality dining in sympathetically restored Victorian tavern. For the more adventurous The Rosemary offers organic Hungarian cuisine or Paranhodo and Karri Twist are well regarded Korean and Indian restaurants respectively. Alternatively, hop on the tube at New Cross or New Cross Gate and the vibrant streets of Brick Lane are minutes away

Places to Visit
Feel like working out
Telegraph Hill Park, rises to 50m above sea level and offers stunning views across the whole of London from the Upper Park. It’s a bit of a climb but worth the effort.
Like where you’re looking but can’t quite find the right thing? Have you considered looking in LEWISHAM, DEPTFORD, or SOUTH BERMONDSEY? They’re close by but offer something different for the budget.
