Brockley is a neighbourhood located near Forest Hill, Lewisham, and Peckham, which has a unique character and retains its individuality. It is just a 10-minute train ride from the city centre, yet it has its own charm. The streets of Brockley are lined with trees, which make it a scenic location, and the Victorian houses are well-preserved. As a result, part of this neighbourhood has been designated as a conservation area.
Brockley is famous for its vibrant street art Summer festival, which is a delight for both art enthusiasts and locals. The festival showcases colourful creations that adorn the walls and shopfronts of the neighbourhood.
Brockley Road is the heart of the area, and it hosts a range of eateries, such as Vietnamese cuisine at Mo Pho, the family-friendly, 1950s-inspired Arlo & Moe teashop, and Browns of Brockley, which is an excellent place for a mid-commute coffee. The area also boasts a variety of new, buzzing bars and pubs, such as the Wetherspoons at Brockley Barge, the modern Joyce pub, and the fantastic Parlez, known for its patio dining and all-day breakfast. So, you will have a wide range of options to choose from for your local brewery or lunch/dinner spot.
For food lovers, there’s no better place than the award-winning Brockley Market, which takes place every Saturday in the Lewisham College Carpark. With a variety of hot and cold food options, as well as fresh produce, you’re always in for a treat at this market.
However, if you prefer a more peaceful experience, we recommend taking a Sunday morning stroll around Hilly Fields Park. It serves as a reminder of why Brockley’s conservation is essential for everyone’s best interests.
