London area of Camberwell guide

What to do and where to stay in London's Camberwell neighbourhood

A built-up, poorer part of south London, Camberwell is not bursting with hotels or attractions, although it is home to one of London's most important contemporary art spaces, the South London Gallery. With Camberwell College of Arts next door and King's College Hospital, one of London's largest teaching hospitals, round the corner, the area also attracts lots of wacky art and tired medical students. To the north is Burgess Park, Southwark's largest, which has 46 hectares of green space and includes sports pitches, a cycle track and a fishing lake.
