10 Things to love about Peckham
As my time living in Peckham comes to an end, I thought it was time to put a list of my favourite places together.
Peckham get’s a pretty bad rap sometimes. Granted, at first glance it’s not the prettiest of places but with its incredibly vibrant mix of people and cultures. It’s a exciting place to explore.
So roll up your jeans and checkout why Peckham is a great place to visit and a fun place to live.
10. Rye Books
Quaint little book shop with really helpful staff.
9. The Rye
A great busy pub with a huge beer garden, board games and massive sausage rolls.
£4.99 to watch movie. It’s got to be the cheapest place to watch a movie in London or even the world.
7. Mr Bao
Incredible food, great service and fantastic value for money.
6. The Waverley Arms
Friendly staff, awesome ales, ducky atmosphere and a belter of a pub quiz on a Wednesday.
5. Peckham Refreshment Rooms
I always find myself in here on a Sunday. It’s really chilled with homemade cakes, good coffee and lovely place to write a blog post (like right now).
4. Old Spike Roastery
Lovely coffee, lovely people with wonderful selection of magazines. A five star people-watching spot.
3. Copeland Park
Copeland Park is full of some amazing businesses like The Yard, The Kiln Rooms and Roof Top Film Club. It also boasts beautiful street art from ROA and is home to the Bussey Building.
2. The Nines
Tucked away behind the beloved Bussey Building, this little gem does a ridiculously good brunch. The pancakes are out of this world and the scrambled eggs with salmon is the best I’ve ever had.
1. Peckham Rye common
A fantastic place to sit in the sun, relax with friends, go for a run, workout or go skating.
