An Introduction to Elephant & Castle
Elephant and Castle, in South East London, has been an important travel junction since Roman times. This major road intersection earned its nickname ‘The Piccadilly of the South’ in the early 20th century, and today it is busier than ever.
However, don’t assume this area is just a thoroughfare, it is also a place of entertainment, education and ever evolving eateries. The area is due to be transformed into a new town of modern tower blocks, so our property agents advise you to get ahead of the curve, and add Elephant to your list of potentials.
Travel Links in Elephant & Castle
Elephant and Castle tube station serves the area, which runs Northern and Bakerloo line trains. These travel to destinations such as London Bridge, Morden, Clapham and King’s Cross. Elephant and Castle railway station is also served by Southeastern and Thameslink trains. There are also a huge number of local buses, and Cycleway 6 and Cycle Superhighway 7 pass through the area.
Our property agents love Elephant and Castle for its combination of cracking night clubs and cute cafes. The area is home to Ministry of Sound and Corsica studios, both big names on the London dance scene.
If you are seeking out an activity that is slightly more tame, head to the Imperial War Museum. Here you can see war through the eyes of the people who lived it. The museum reveals the experience soldiers had fighting on the front line, with their First World War galleries. They also detail key moments of the Second World War.
