What Is Peckham Like?
Once seen as a small village which was surrounded by fields, Peckham has recently been regenerated into a buzzing area with lots to do and see. It is situated near Peckham Rye Park and could definitely be seen as an up and coming area. it is in the London borough of Southwark in South East London and is in the SE15 postcode district. Nearby Peckham, there are places such as Brixton, East Dulwich and Bromley and the surrounding areas have postcodes including SE22, SW9 and BR1. Peckham grew around the railway and Rye Lane shopping street making it busier and busier and more like the place that it is today. In the 1990’s there was a large regeneration project in Peckham in order to try and get rid of some of the bad press, replacing council estates with better quality housing and so on. It is one of the most diverse areas in London, and is an area where many different ethnicities can come together and live side by side. Recently, there has been a growth in the number of cafes and wine bars in Peckham making it an area to definitely keep your eye on as it begins to grow and improve.
