Peckham
Peckham

Peckham gets a bad reputation as a historically rough part of South London, but it is quickly becoming one of its coolest areas, with some proclaiming it ‘the new Shoreditch’. Here’s our insider guide of things to do in and around this hipster haven.


CLF Arthouse

A 120-year-old multi-storey warehouse space bringing you your dose of underground and alternative events spanning anime, deep techno, soul and funk music as well as cabaret and theatre.

Bar Story

Thin crust pizzas and a popular cocktail happy hour from 6–7 pm on weekdays can all be enjoyed to the sounds coming from the DJ set. What more could you want!

Blue Tit

A fashion-forward, boutique salon, putting great effort into creating an experience rather than a transaction. You’ll be leaving pampered, tipsy and with great hair!
