London's Best for Savvy Travellers

 

Explore Peckham Rye Park

An idyllic green getaway set within London, Peckham Rye Park is the perfect spot to lay back with a picnic during the English summer. Peckham Rye is a hub for community and sporting life, where locals gather to walk dogs and spend time with family in the landscaped gardens. With woodland areas and meadows, ponds and gardens, there’s plenty to explore in this urban sanctuary.

 

Sample the diverse flavours of South London

South London is home to a wide array of global cuisines drawn from Britain’s rich cultural diversity. Peckham is no exception, boasting some of the best South Asian food you’ll find on this side of the globe. Chai’s Garden for Thai food is an absolute must, or munch on south Indian fare at Ganapati which offers a constantly changing menu.

 

Catch some art at Bold Tendencies

To catch some of the most interesting art on show in Britain right now head beyond the four walls of museums and out to Bold Tendencies, the creative heart of Peckham. Set in a multi-storey carpark this is art on a whole new level, where you can find yoga sessions and film screenings amongst contemporary paintings and sculptures.

 

Grab a drink at Frank’s Café and Campari Bar

After exploring the world of modern art at Bold Tendencies head upstairs to rooftop bar Frank’s for sunset drinks, where you will find breathtaking views across London’s skyline. From its enviable tenth-floor location guests are treated to live music, bites to eat and drinks to sip. It’s an incredible spot to watch the world from as London’s famous skyline is illuminated at sunset. Cheers to that!
