Please note, due to Covid-19 activities and venues in this area may be affected by government guidelines.

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 was described as "one of the most elegant art spaces in London" by the Guardian. The gallery was named joint winner of Art Fund Museum of the Year 2020. Most exhibitions are free, as are many of its events.

One of our halls of residence, Town Hall Camberwell, is also in the area. It sits right next to Theatre Peckham, the community theatre that was the stomping ground of Star Wars actor John Boyega when he was still at school.
