    Pros:
    *42, 136, 343, 12, 68, 148, 171, 176, 468, 40, 45, 35, P12 are all near me, so I don't need to worry about missing a bus :teehee:

    *Living quite high I get to see some parts of the London, I can see parts of Vauxhall, Canary Wharf, London Bridge etc.

    *I have everything I need on the main street: small Tesco, Iceland, Morrisons, M&S, big Tesco and ASDA are not far either, loads of small shops too

    *Several parks in the area and one big close enough

    Cons:
    *Food market next to my street :erm: I have to go all the way around because it takes ages for me to get through to a bus stop :unimpressed:

    *Traffic! Sometimes the queue of vehicles turns into several kilometers :toofunny:

    Do you like/love or detest where you live?

    I live in an urban area of South West London AKA Clapham, and I absolutely love my area and the culture.:love: I used to live in Brixton and that was also a brilliant area!!!

    I love the community vibe, the love and culture.

    Even though the hood get's a bad press and reputation, I wouldn't choose to live anywhere else in U.K as it would most probably be dull and boring.:boring:

    But on a real though, the hood is amazing.:daydreaming:
    lol my mother always used to tell me if I ever went to london to never go to brixton at night :lol: isn't it rough af?

    Lived on the Isle of Wight my whole life. Many of my friends and family don't like it because it's "cut off", but I like the country walks and abandoned places all over the towns and villages. I don't think the people are that interested in that particular side of the island, but I am, so I make the most of it.
