Slowly chipping away at its rough reputation, Stockwell’s confluence of cafes, bakeries, and pop-up art installations are enticing kindred spirits to the neighborhood. Offering more than an alluring attraction for alternative-scene seekers, Stockwell also boasts cosmopolitan flavors—its steadfast Portuguese population comprises London’s own “Little Portugal.” The neighborhood’s skate parks, central location, and convenient tube access add to its escalating appeal.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Stockwell: Stepping Out From Its Own Shadow
... exciting London location [that] has a selection of great pubs, cafes and restaurants. Muriel Spark used to live here as did Florence from Florence and the Machine. It is multicultural and vibrant. Five minutes on the bus from Brixton Village, the Ritzy cinema and the underground. It is quick walking distance from Loughborough Junction and Denmark Hill train stations and there are also lots and lots of easy buses to Waterloo, London Bridge and Victoria which all take about 20 minutes."
