UPDATED: To Do List Local – Peckham

[vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Not far down the road from To Do List HQ, Peckham is home to a growing list of kooky, offbeat, and (dare we say it?) cool things to do and places to go!

Following on from our popular guides to the joys of New Cross & Acton, here’s a few of our favourite Peckham-tastic pleasures – LONG LIVE THE PECKHAISSANCE!

The NINES Peckham


The NINES is a gorgeous new arrival in the Copeland Park/Bussey Building area & is packed full of lovely events, food & a community atmosphere.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]



An ace new addition to the Peckham scene, Pedler is a food-lovers dream! Amazing sharing plates of tasty, seasonal food make up a menu that changes daily – expect squid, lamb and chicken one day, crispy pork, cod or mushrooms the next. The cocktails, nearly all containing the mighty fine Little Bird Gin, are excellent, and the bread & butter pudding is to die for![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


Bar Story

Hidden under the arches of Peckham Rye station, Bar Story is the bar you take your cool out-of-town friends to, to make them think you’re always drinking amazing cocktails and lesser-known continental beers next to roaring fires in recycled steel barrels, surrounded by an arty South London crowd.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


Bellenden Road

If you laughed at Bellenden, you might not fit in. A bit up itself perhaps, but Bellenden Road is home to some nice pubs, independent shops and cafes, and Antony Gormley-designed bollards.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


Chai’s Garden

The first of our not-strictly-Peckham-but-Nunhead-is-close-enough choices – Chai’s Garden is just around the corner from Nunhead station, and is a great place to grab some tasty Thai food whilst wondering how you ended up in Nunhead.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


The CLF Art Cafe

The definition of eclecticism. Theatre, bar, studio, for music, art, theatre, dance, workshops and all that jazz. If it’s worth doing, it’s probably happening here.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


The Old Nun’s Head

After wandering around the cemetery, or shovelling down some Thai food, head along to the Old Nun’s Head next to Nunhead Green. Ace food and a good drink selection, and the ubiquitous weekly quiz (Thursday).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]



Ah, the famous PeckhamPlex. An independent cinema that’s also cheap as chips. All tickets, all day, just £4.99 – and they do EE 2-for-1 on Wednesdays too! Do as we do: buy your tickets early, then head to Bar Story for a pre-film drink or three.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


Peckham Platform

A charity which aims to create meaningful and accessible social arts for Peckham and beyond, working with the artists who prioritise working with people and communities.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


The Rye

Yes, another pub, but we like a nice pub. This one is nestled (yeah, nestled) right next to the common, serves, um, booze, and has some pretty tasty grub to go with it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]


Nunhead Cemetery

One of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries of London (can you name the other six? Oh, sod off cleverclogs!), Nunhead cemetery is perfect for a Sunday afternoon walk. Perfect, that is, if you love all things gothic and are of a funereal nature. Their are guided tours on the last Sunday of each month.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
