Living on the RA estate is great, reminds me a bit like a university campus
The people are generally really nice, although you could make a lot of middle class jokes about them not going outside the green zone.
I can’t think of many other places in London where you are so close to the river in central London and yet have lots of space around you.
Getting into work in central London is a pleasant experience on the boat, much more civilised that the train when it’s packed.
The food and drink options are great on the estate and if your are prepared to venture outside there are some great local bars and restaurants in Greater Woolwich.
It’s also an amazing place to bring up small children. The roads are quiet on the estate and you have a number excellent childcare options with Zeeba Daycare Centre and Under One Roof. I also understand the primary schools have good ratings.
I’d also like to add I’m quite involved in the Royal Arsenal Rugby club which is a great outlet to meet new residents and energize with their training on the Tag Team, keeping fit.
I am so glad we moved here and cannot think of a better place to live in London.
