Want to lose yourself amidst bohemian beauty and grow your own organic vegetables safe in the knowledge that central London is just a 10-minute train ride away? Then Camberwell’s the place for you!
To the east, nestled among the abundance of well-kept Victorian and Georgian properties, lies the South London Gallery – the hub of Camberwell’s artisan community. Artists regularly exhibit their work at the historic Flying Dutchman pub on Well’s Way too – in fact Camberwell is quite a hub for the culturally curious and creative thinkers.
If you prefer a more rustic approach to life, a visit to the weekly farmers’ market on Camberwell Green is a must, unless you’re already tending to your own produce at the communal greenhouse in glorious Myatt’s Fields Park that is.
Camberwell’s commercial centre boasts something for everyone from internet cafes to cycling shops and second-hand record emporiums. And the area’s brand new library caters for bookworms and those in need of a little peace and quiet – all part of the area’s appeal as the perfect antidote to hectic city life.
