Surrounding Oval Quarter are several long established London neighbourhoods, each with its own character and attractions. They include Brixton, Clapham Stockwell, Oval and Camberwell, and every one of them has a wealth of hidden gems for you to seek out.
Many of your everyday shopping needs can be satisfied locally in Brixton Road and Stockwell Road, where you'll find the reassuring presence of Sainsbury's, Boots and Marks and Spencer. For more exotic purchases, you might want to seek out Camberwell's independent traders, while Brixton market is deservedly famous for its incredible range of African, Asian and Caribbean produce. Another local treasure is the farmer's market held every Saturday at St Marks Church in Oval where you can stock up on locally sourced produce and refuel with the vendors' ready to eat snacks.
If you're just in the mood for a sociable drink, the area provides dozens of pubs of the traditional and gastro variety, including some of London's coolest bars in Brixton.
Another advantage of Oval Quarter, from any parent's point of view, is the number of schools in the area rated 'outstanding' or 'good' by Ofsted, including the St Michael and All Angels C of E Academy. With a number of three bedroom apartments available, Oval Quarter could be the perfect address for any family.
The wonderful city of London is just a short tube journey away from Oval Quarter, giving you Zone 2 connections via the Northern Line. Change at Stockwell for the Victoria Line and you're within easy reach of all parts of London and beyond.
