"The Nun's Head pub in Nunhead Green is so named as it stands on the site of a nunnery which was demolished, and the poor abbess lost her head and had it displayed on a pole!"

The views from Nunhead Station is spectacular on a clear day - you can see all the way to Canary Wharf.

New Cross is as arty and cultural as Shoreditch and Soho, but with a strong South London identity...

Nunhead quote

Hop on a train from New Cross Gate Station direct to Shoreditch and stations close to the City and Canary Wharf.
