London area of SE15 guide
What to do and where to stay in London's SE15 neighbourhood
With Peckham High Street winding right across the middle of this district, it's no surprise to learn that that the Peckham area covers the majority of the SE15 postcode. Known perhaps largely for being the setting of the hugely popular British comedy Only Fools and Horses, Peckham underwent a Â£290 million regeneration scheme in the late 90s and early 2000s, funded largely by the European Union. The regeneration provided the award-winning Peckham library, a brand new town square and swathes of new housing to replace the North Peckham estate. State funding has also helped public art projects such as the Tom Phillips mosaics on the wall of the Peckham Experiment Restaurant. The area features a traditional London working class community, coexisting with a large diversity of cultures that have origins in places such as Bangladesh, India, Nigeria, the Caribbean, Turkey, Eastern Europe and many others.
