Thamesmead Area Guide
Thamesmead is a very unusual part of London that mainly consists of 1960’s social housing, followed later by modern private estates. It is a small peninsula that juts into the Thames with soaring brutalist concrete towers and walkways (featured in many films such as the iconic ‘A Clockwork Orange’), townhouses, and sprawling riverside flats. It is overwhelmingly a residential area, with the exception of Belmarsh Prison, and a retail park with a large Morrisons supermarket.
The social mix was originally predominantly white, but a wave of immigration from West Africa, and to some degree Asia, has balanced this out and created a very diverse community. This is reflected in the wide ethnic mix in the schools, and Windrush Primary is notable as Ofsted ‘outstanding’.
Thamesmead commuters rely on the good road links and dual carriageways to connect by car and bus services to the train, DLR and new Elizabeth Line services at Woolwich for high speed to Canary Wharf and the west end. Trains take you to Woolwich Arsenal via London Bridge to Cannon Street or Charing Cross, or via the Thames Link service that goes all the way to Luton Airport via Blackfriars, Farringdon and St Pancras. Its lack of stations has kept house prices and rents very affordable by London standards, so is amazing value, particularly those properties on the Royal Arsenal riverfront side of Thamesmead.
