SE15 quote

Chris Venter

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

Michael Schult

Camberwell's residential streets are monopolised by elegant period properties and mature trees that heighten the area's family appeal.

What locals say about SE15

  1. Nunhead has a lovely village-y feel while still being really close to bustling Peckham and New Cross. We have our own great restaurants, bars and shops close to Nunhead Green. A few favourites: great craft beer micro pub: the Beer Shop, lovely French bistro: Babette; amazing sour dough pizzas: 400 Rabbits.

  2. Peckham and particularly Bellenden Road has an array of cafes and amazing restaurants.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 =)

  5. Nunhead has got to be the best place to live if you want to be close to the city, close to lots of green spaces, and close to lovely pubs and shops. Nunhead has a real mix of people with newcomers keeping the area vibrant. Sunday lunch at the Ivy House Pub with a jazz big band is a must!

  6. 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
