Is this the worst 'studio flat' in London?


Every week Londoners despair of the never-ending spiraling costs of living in the capital, and every week the market carries on obliviously, getting increasingly ridiculous.

And we're delighted to announce a winner in the highly-competitive 'worst-value studio flat' in London competition, in the form of this beauty in Southwark.

Even calling it a 'studio flat' is taking a real liberty with the truth, consisting as it does of a room which just about fits a mattress (we're unsure exactly how you open the door) a sink with two hobs for the 'kitchen' and a shower with an even smaller sink for the 'bathroom'. And there are no windows. Because natural light is so overrated.

This absolute steal of a property is on the market for £700 a month. Let's repeat that: £700 a month. It does include water and council tax so that's a bargain. Right?

Remarkably, the location is not even that amazing, being a 20 minute walk to either Elephant & Castle, or Kennington tube stations. It is next to Burgess Park though, which really is handy as you'll need to hang out here quite a bit just to get your daily dose of Vitamin D and oxygen.

Maybe you should just cut out the middle man, buy a tent and just live in the park instead? You could even wash in the lake.

Actually, that's probably not too far off happening for real is it.
