"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."

"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!"
