Only a short stroll across the Thames to central London and with the imposing Imperial War Museum and the Kia Oval cricket ground, Kennington is a popular destination for those after the best that the capital has to offer. The area is also well known for it’s strong community spirit, which is evident from the many local-led events that the neighbourhood hosts.
Desirable Property Types
Kennington is home to a variety of different properties that includes Georgian and Victorian homes built around shared squares, of which many have since been turned into flats. Desirable properties are littered throughout the neighbourhood, but it’s the areas of West Square, Walcot Square and St Mary’s Gardens where Kennington’s most sought-after homes are.
Kennington offers a wealth of shops and eateries, with a mix of large supermarkets, independent shops, traditional pubs and international restaurants all at home within the neighbourhood. St Mark’s Church also holds a weekly farmers market, while the East Street Market on Walworth Road sells just about everything you could ever imagine.
Travel from Kennington is often straightforward with the Underground stations of Kennington and Oval on the Northern line, and Lambeth North on the Bakerloo line. The area also has a number of bus routes that pass through on their way to central, south and west London.
Home to a diverse array of residents, Kennington is home to plenty of families and professionals, as well as a proportionally large number of those working in politics. However, many of these families move out of the area in search of more space as their children reach a certain age.

The Homyze Story
Whilst working on projects across London, Adam and Andrew were constantly asked by friends to refer a good plumber or carpenter. As property obsessives, Adam and Andrew were only too happy to help. They know what it is like to get your dream home. Or how annoying it can be if something is just not quite right.
When following up to make sure that they were happy with the work that had been done, Adam and Andrew realised that this was what the home services and construction industries were sorely lacking: quality customer service.
Quality tradespeople and excellent customer service were introduced and they got on fabulously. One thing led to another, and Homyze was born. We're really proud of what Homyze has done so far... she's growing up so fast but this is just the beginning. We know we will change the way in which people think about getting help with their home.
