Spotlight on Brockley

Published: 14/09/2016

Gentrification is the new buzz word when describing many of London’s suburbs nowadays and the word can easily be mentioned when debating Brockley. However, the transformation in the area has been steady and rooted, for instance  to the delight of it’s  residents, Brockley has not succumbed to an impersonal coffee chain, and to the contrary you  can soak up the community spirit in one of many independently owned businesses in Brockley & surrounding areas.
Nestled between Camberwell College of Arts and Goldsmith’s University, the area attracts a lot of creative residents who fit perfectly in an area known for its quirky laid back vibe. The London Overground connection is an obvious appeal to City workers who can travel into Shoreditch High Street,  Highbury & Islington and to London Bridge in a mere 12-16 minutes. Whilst Crofton Park station has Thameslink services to Blackfriars (22 minutes) and St Pancras (32 minutes) and with Brockley station being in Zone 2, residents can save money on their travel.
Once home from work, Brockley has fantastic leisure options at your disposal. The Rivoli ballroom on Brockley Road has welcomed Florence + The Machine, The White Stripes, Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher in recent years. Brockley Open Studios is a summer showcase where local artists open their doors to the public and you can take in fabulous views from Hilly Fields Park and Telegraph Hill Park nearby.
To satisfy appetites, Indian restaurant Babur voted London’s ‘best Indian restaurant’ in 2013, is always a good choice as well as Brockley’s Rock serving traditional fish and chips. Several trendy delis and cafes have opened up the area such as Arlo and Moe which offers fresh produce and The Brockley Orchard have a fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner menu.
Jam Circus attracts local parents in the day and transforms in the evening into a bar with live music and to take in a show, residents can take a stroll to The Brockley Jack for a diverse programme of theatre, comedy and even poetry.
There are some great schools in the area, Brockley Primary School, John Stainer Community Primary School, St. Mary Magdalen R.C School and Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham College are just a few of the decent schools in the area. Ofsted reports are available on our website.
Properties in the area are dominated by two conservation areas. The Brockley conservation area has Victorian houses which range from large detached properties on wide, tree-lined roads such as Tressilian Road, Breaskspears Road and Wickham Road to smaller terrace cottages around Hilly Fields Park. St Johns conservation area is far more self-contained, with streets very similar.
