Deptford has a growing artistic community, with many artists and makers filling the studios that sit beside Deptford Creek, the old docks. The area also has a performing arts centre, several pubs and a market that sells bric-a-brac and fruit and veg from all corners of the world.
Other highlights include Bearspace, a gallery run by a former student, and Wunderlust, a pop-up restaurant and cocktail bar inside an old Routemaster bus.
