Buyers attracted to lifestyle at ‘up and coming’ Woolwich

With prices for apartments starting from £365,000, which makes it one of the most cost-effective areas to buy in south east London, it’s no wonder Trinity Walk in Woolwich is proving so popular with first time buyers.

That’s according to Lea Hudson, sales manager at Lovell Homes, who said: “We have had an influx of first time buyers at Trinity Walk of all ages and nationalities who are attracted to the development for its value for money. Londoners are also falling in love with the area.”

Here’s an overview of the type of lifestyle you can expect.

Pubs, cafes, restaurants

Woolwich boasts a wide range of cafés, pubs and restaurants which are popular with locals and visitors to the Royal Arsenal. Since 2010, The Dial Arch pub and restaurant dialarch.com has been housed inside a restored 18th Century Armoury and is very well known in the area for its traditional cooking and seasonal dishes. The location in the Royal Arsenal offers beautiful surroundings, which you can enjoy outside on the sun terrace, or when the chillier days arrive, inside with an open fire.

Woolwich boasts a deliciously varied cuisine when it comes to eating out – choose from atmospheric pubs, elegant restaurants or artisan cafes.  The eateries include everything and anything from Nepalese cooking, authentic Italian to Eritrean and a Japanese café/bakery, as well as some of the usual chain restaurants.

Recent arrivals include the award winning Con Gusto congusto.co.uk, a bijou Italian restaurant in the Royal Arsenal by the Thames Clipper. Housed in a Grade II Listed former guardhouse, built in 1815, the restaurant serves excellent modern Italian and Mediterranean food cooked in an open kitchen.

For a genuine southern Italian market style welcome head to Rust Bucket Pizzeria rustbucketpizzaco.co.uk. Enjoy locally sourced wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas and unforgettable coffee daily in a converted horse box.
