    So i'm not a londoner and i'm foreign so i really don't know how the places are.

    my and my friends will be young professinonals who just graduated and i'll be starting work in canary wharf area (no it's not banking so i won't get paid tons)

    we've been looking for a 3bed place and it's near impossible to find a nice 3 bed place in areas we wanted.
    the best we could find, in terms of niceness of house, price, location (ie to commute) was by elephant castle or limehouse.

    the flat in elephant castle is located about 5 min walk south from the tube statino.

    the limehouse one is located like a minute away from the DLR station.

    for londoners who have knowledge of the areas ,could you please share it?
    where would u consider safer? the south east (E&C) or the east (limehouse)

    Agree with the others, the Elephant and Castle is not a nice area - it might be in a few years if they get on with the regeneration but for now I'd look somewhere else.

    Canary Wharf? Limehouse, duh.

    No idea if it's better or worse than Elephant and Castle, but let's face it, it can't be that much worse for a journey that'll be no changes and barely 10 mins.

    Limehouse - no offence to anyone who lives there but E & C is a bit of a ****hole...

    Limehouse is closer by a long way, isn't it?

    Anyway, E&C is not dangerous at all...I don't live in it but I live a couple of minutes down the road. It's not exactly a beautiful place but it's more central in London. Depends what your priorities are nearer. Don't know anything about limehouse.

    Limehouse. Much more convenient to get to Canary Wharf AND much safer.
