Living in Peckham area information and guide

Peckham area overview

Peckham today is far removed from what it was inteh days of del Boy and Rodney Trotter. Now, cafes, delis and wine bars sit alongside galleries, African food stores and market sellers, transforming this area into a vibrant, popular and multicultural neighbourhood. A £290 million regeneration plan during the late 1990s, an influx of cutting edge artists and huge improvements to transport links has had a profoundly positive impact.
