“This time next year we’ll be in the top ten”
Peckham has been named the world’s eleventh coolest neighbourhood in the 2019 Time Out Index.
The south London hotspot may still be more globally famous for the antics of Del Boy and Rodney but a new generation of chefs, baristas and bartenders are turning it into an affordable mecca for London’s latter-day yuppies.
Top of the Time Out list is the Arroios barrio in Lisbon, followed by Shimokitazawa in Tokyo and Lagos Onikan.
Peckham is London’s only entry on the list, with parts of Manchester, Bristol and Glasgow also included (sorry Edinburgh).
Time Out’s things to do in Peckham include drinks at Bussey’s Rooftop Bar and food from Mexican joint Taco Queen on Rye Lane.
Also highly recommended is retro cinema Peckhamplex, where tickets still cost just £4.99 all day, every day.
