There are some great markets and shops in Peckham, South London. My son has just moved there so we went exploring last weekend. Khans market sheltered us from a rain storm, then we stayed much longer than needed. They sell everything you could possible think of in an amazing old art deco building.


Loads of fruit and veg stalls are all really busy with more yams than I have ever seen in one place .


and several great fabric shops overflowing with African wax batik cottons such as Royal Textiles on Rye Lane.


The Bussey building originally making cricket bats now hosts several small businesses and exhibition spaces as well as an outdoor cinema, the photo below was taken from Franks a newly opened cafe / bar on top of an old multi-story car park which has great views over London from the roof



and a garden inspired by Derek Jarman’s in Dungeness.
