The area of Elephant and Castle is set for a transformation that will make this part of the capital a major hub for inner South London. Part of this project is the introduction of a new shopping centre, a new civic square, more open spaces, tram routes and a new library which will all revive an area that already has so much potential. You can also benefit from the entertainment already in place at the current Shopping Centre, with many restaurants, bars, chain stores and a variety of smaller independent stores.
Elephant and Castle is home to the well-known development of Metro Central Heights which comprises a range of apartments, all varied in price, that offer bright living spaces for a great price. There are plans to build more housing opportunities within Elephant and Castle that will provide a brilliant platform for investors to consider. Elephant and Castle is definitely an area which will see a lot of regeneration in coming years, currently there is a lot of property available for an affordable price.
This vibrant area is well connected and acts as an important transport interchange as the hub of the South – Central London bus network. Elephant and Castle underground station (Bakerloo – Northern) allows you to commute to the West End and the City in 10 to 15 minutes. The Elephant and Castle overground station also has regular trains to Blackfriars, taking about four minutes, and trains to St Pancras taking 16 minutes.
Rental wise, the area can be extremely popular for London university students and commuters alike.
