Uniquely Located

Loughborough Junction’s central location makes it a superb point to go pretty much anywhere in London, the train station offers trains to central London, 2 stops to the South Bank, St Pauls, Farringdon and beyond to St Albans. The other way offers direct trains to Streatham, East Croydon and Wimbledon. Within ten minutes walk you can be in Brixton, Camberwell or Herne Hill.

If you want to travel by bike you can be in the city within 20 minutes or if you are feeling energetic Crystal Palace is worth a trip for some super views across London. Within 30 minutes you can be cycling around Regents Park.

Here are some of my favorite destinations.

1) The South Bank. Two train stops to Blackfriars puts you within an easy walk of the Tate Modern, the Globe Theatre, St Pauls and the Museum of London and of course the South Bank itself. By the way I can highly recommend the Haddock & chips at the Tate Modern cafe. (amongst the best!)

2) On Friday or Saturday morning the 35 bus to London Bridge gets you to Borough Market for a gastronomic feast for the eyes and senses. It’s also worth a visit to Southwark Cathedral which dates back to the Domesday Book, and is now the resting place of the American Indian Mahomet Weyonomon who died of smallpox in 1735 whilst petitioning King George II and seek justice for his tribe in America.

3) Dulwich Woods – located just behind the golf course in Dulwich – google maps is the largest single part of the ancient Great North Wood still extant. If you want to get some peace and quite, fresh air and absolutely no idea that you are in London, then pay these woods a visit. I haven’t been for ages however it is always a great place to explore. It will be beautiful now before it gets too muddy.
