Situated within the London borough of Southwark and the setting of Muriel Spark’s ‘The Ballad of Peckham Rye’, Peckham is a valued area of South London and this blog will keep you up to speed on some of the fun and interesting things you can do there in August 2019!
If there’s one thing that London does well it’s beer. And ale. And stout. Microbreweries and taprooms are sprinkled across the whole of south London. Readers will likely be familiar with stalwarts Meantime and Late Knights but what about Earth Ale or Hop Stuff? For all out beer geekery head down to The Beer Shop in Nunhead or Hop Burns and Black in East Dulwich which both stock some of the best beers you’ll find this side of the Thames. There are new microbreweries popping up all the time so this is not a definitive list. However we’d love to hear from you on social media if there are any that others that you love or would recommend.
Peckham, or Pecknarm as it also known, has become one of the most popular destinations not just in South East London, not just South London, but all of London (we don’t like to think that big, it hurts). There’s plenty of things to do in this very edgy part of town (having called it edgy, it surely is no longer edgy), and one of those things is to drink. You might be meeting friends, new flames, or old/current flames, we don’t judge what kind of flame you might be meeting (if you are). Regardless, sharing a drink is one of the best ways of spending time with others, and with a plentiful supply of independent cafes and bars, you really are spoilt for choice for places to go for a drink in Peckham. So to keep you informed of where you might like to sip on a craft beer, or a cocktail, here is a list of the 7 best places to go for a drink in Peckham.
