Walworth described as ‘the gateway to the city’, lies in the Borough of Southwark. Its population is largely White British and African and two thirds are working age with the largest percentage between the ages of 30 and 44.
The centre of Walworth is a 25 minute walk from London Bridge and transport links include the Elephant and Castle Underground on the Northern and Bakerloo Line, the Elephant and Castle Rail Station taking you to St.Albans, Luton, Sevenoaks or Sutton via Blackfriars, Catford and Mitcham Junction and almost 40 bus routes travel through the Elephant.
You can access West End bars, restaurants, clubs and pubs, galleries and museums in no time or if you prefer to stay closer to home, try the live music at Corsica Studios or DJs at the Ministry of Sound. Restaurants in the area include Spanish, Greek, Asian and Colombian.
