My place is super connected. 8 minute walk to Queen's Rd Peckham (London Bridge in 10 minutes), 5 minutes to Nunhead station, 15 to Peckham Rye (trains to Victoria, Kings X, and overground). The neighbourhood is great. Lots of bars, cafes, restaurants and galleries.
There are tons of creative nights, a vinyl shop in an alleyway, amazing coffee galore, and parks. There are free talks and performances at Goldsmiths multiple times a week.
