New Cross is famed for its trendy image thanks to the Goldsmiths Art College which proudly stands just off the main shopping street.
Its influence across the town means there is a good variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants catering for a variety of different tastes. However if you look beyond the surface, New Cross is just as convenient for the City commuter or family, as it is the trendy student.
New Cross is at the point where the A2 meets the A20 giving swift access into the City or out to the Kent countryside, the rejuvenated London Overground Line (formerly the East London Line), now gives direct access to Shoreditch (for City), Croydon and Clapham, while the mainline train goes direct to London Bridge in a matter of minutes.
There is a vast mixture of property styles in the area ranging from large £1m+ period terraces at Telegraph Hill, smaller period properties around Hatcham Park, and modern two bedroomed houses towards Deptford, intertwined with conversion apartments and purpose built developments. This ensures a healthily mixed community and something for everyone whether you want wide on green spaces, a variety of shopping options or just a quiet drink in a well-kept pub.
