Nowhere in London will you find such areas of contrast than in Peckham. From bustling Rye Lane with its African grocery stores through Peckham Square with its award winning library and on to the Bellenden Road renewal area with its independent shops and artistic street furniture. In this walk, Diane Burstein helps you to uncover the story of this surprising bit of London. Elegant 19th century villas, places of worship, a green where the geese once took rest, the common where William Blake first saw his visions and one of the most neighbourly streets in London famous for its floral displays all feature.
