Local Information About
Lewisham

Lewisham is a borough in South East London, situated between Greenwich, Bromley and Southwark.

Home to Goldsmiths, University of London, Lewisham has become a hub of social activity of late, due to its high student population. Although originally a village, Lewisham is now home to enterprise and entertainment, as well as many residencies. Areas in the borough such as Bermondsey have business and retail parks, whilst Deptford is famous for its now-closed Dockyard. For sporting fans, Lewisham - and Bermondsey, in particular - is significant as the home of Millwall F.C.

Many areas of Lewisham have centred around local markets for years, with both Deptford and Lewisham still having iterations of these markets today. The property market is varied, with period houses and new-build apartments close by one another, as well as flats sat above retail spaces on the high streets throughout the borough. Student halls also contribute to the housing stock, as a result of the university.

As with other areas in South London, Lewisham is best reached by bus or the London Overground, with service to New Cross and New Cross Gate frequent. Lewisham and Deptford are also both on the Docklands Light Railway.

The Housekeep platform frequently services South East London and the borough of Lewisham. There are plenty of great housekeepers - all background checked and experienced - who cover SE13, SE14 and SE15, as well as other postcodes throughout the borough.
