Area Guide: Deptford is in the London Borough of Lewisham and has a solid south London identity. Historic Deptford is home to Deptford Railway Station, one of the oldest stations in the world.

From the mid-16th century to the late 19th-century, Deptford housed the first Royal Navy Dockyard, Deptford Dockyard. This area was also where the adventurer Francis Drake was knighted by Queen Elizabeth I. Foreshore, near Pepys Park, is home to a Grade II listed Georgian building converted into attractive apartments sitting aside the River Thames.

These days Deptford attracts creative types and professionals. There is a community of artists based in the studios around Creekside. The area has a mixture of social housing and new flats, and you can still find 17th-century cottages and 18th-century houses with carved wooden porches. The Victorian terraced properties in Scawen Road, Hicks Street, Alloa Road, and Crooke Road are popular with families, as is Deptford Park. Deptford property prices cover many levels with options available for first-time buyers and rise upwards from there.

Deptford Station has regular trains bound for London Bridge and Cannon Street, providing excellent access to wider London. Deptford Bridge is a Docklands Light Railway station in Zone 2 & 3 and allows access to Heron Quays, a few minutes walk from Canary Wharf and therefore ideal for commuters. In addition, there are many different bus routes towards Lewisham, Surrey Quays and beyond.

Fascinating, historical roots and good transport links make Deptford a highly sought after place to live. However, neighbouring Greenwich and Surrey Quays carry higher price points, so Deptford offers an exciting alternative for buyers and tenants to consider.
