Peckham Rye is a vibrant and characterful area that never sleeps, with bustling markets and independent shops.

What locals say about Peckham Rye

  1. I love Peckham Rye because transport links are great. It takes 20 minutes by bus to get into the centre of London and 15 by train. The shops are great for food shopping and the area is bursting with culture.

  2. There's some really nice cafe's around. Peckham Rye is beautiful in the summer. Great transport links and London's most affordable cinema too =)

  3. I love all the arty new spaces opening up around the Rye Lane station. Fantastic. I hope there are more and more and more coming. From art to breads to cakes to street food to coffee to organic beer. And all close to my flat now
