The resurgence of Peckham has been unstoppable over recent years with people flocking to the arty bars and the fantastic green spaces. We are clearly no different and here is our day in Peckham with plenty of things to do and see.
Open and vast are two words to describe Peckham Rye, or at least the first half of the Park as you approach from the station.
If we lived locally this would be our favourite summer spot with some bottles of beer and a picnic. But, as we are on a Tramble, walking and exploring the best of Peckham is our priority. So onwards we march.
Deeper in the park you unexpectedly come across a maze of different gardens. They are all lovely to walk through and you will be taking plenty of photos of the surrounds.
a glimpse of street art
If you are in the know then you will be well aware that Dulwich and East Dulwich have an excellent street art scene. This has somewhat spread to the edges of the Peckham boundary near to some of the better pubs and eateries in the area.
We would stop for a drink at The Montpellier (43 Choumert Rd, London SE15 4AR | 020 7635 9483 | Website), before sourcing some food at the laid-back Petitou cafe (63 Choumert Rd, Peckham, London SE15 4AR | 020 7639 2613 | Website). If that isn't your style there are other options around the corner on Bellenden Road as well. Here is where you will find some street art too.
Why not finish the day in Peckham with spectacular views. Frank's Cafe (10th Floor, Peckham Multi-Storey Car Park, 95 Rye Lane, London SE15 4ST | Website) opens during the summer on top of a car park back towards Peckham Rye Station.
Enjoy the views across the City and the Shard while enjoying a few drinks.
