Camberwell has a huge array of shops, restaurants and pubs - top picks include Sophocles Bakery, FM Mangal, Stormbird and The Tiger.
Camberwell is also home to the South London Gallery which has been described as "one of the most elegant art spaces in London" by the Guardian. Most exhibitions are free, as are many of their events.
Attached to the gallery is The Habit Café. It may be quite small, but during the day it’s a relaxing place to pick something off the brunch menu and do your coursework.
One of our halls of residence, Town Hall Camberwell, is also based in the area.
