Peckham’s on the up. In particular the Blenheim Grove side (the posh bit), which now has a smart butcher, a good Thai restaurant, and now even a new tapas bar, a little confusingly called the Peckham Refreshment Rooms.

The hipness quota really cranks up in the evening, attracting Peckham’s edgy art scene/boho crowd.
