Denmark Hill is basically a sleeping suburb near the King's College Hospital, centered around the Ruskin Park.
Above everything else, Denmark Hill felt safe. The area is well kept, the houses are not ostentatious and the cards parked next to streets are not particularly expensive. Many of the people living there keep their motorcycles stored outside the front door, merely covered against the weather. The properties rarely have any fences, implying that thieves are not particularly interested in the region.
With the number of students in there, no wonder. And there are lot of young families.
One odd observation of the area: there are a plenty of small street corner churches, none of them larger than a small daycare. I have no idea what to make of it - it's just a detail that caught my eye.
The streets remind me of Picket Fences. Each street consists of a long row of identical houses, but at least the templates have been cycled so that nearby streets each have their own look.
So far this is the only place where I have felt the inclination of walking up to a door and give the bell a ring so I could ask the tenants what they think about living there.
The presence of a relatively small campus, along with the lack of direct transit link to city probably contribute to the region's character.
Fox on the Hill deserves a special mention. The incredibly relaxed atmosphere makes the place feel immediately cozy. Worth a visit, and while there, do take your time. Rush not.
