The Stuff We Can't Fit In Somewhere Else
  • Peckham is not a nice place to visit anymore, certain new arrivals have turned the area into a smelly dumping ground. all the decent shops have gone, and its about time the area was cleared completely and rebuilt!
  • Re: country types who wouldn't last 5 mins - you're too right. My friend from Norfolk spent a whole 10mins clinging to my arm all the way down Peckham High St. She obviously thought she was gonna get raped and mugged. at 1 in the afternoon! When some bloke asked us for 20p, she nearly screamed. So to all you who feel nervous about anywhere that isn't the inside of Selfridges, stay away. Everybody else knows that Peckham is a perfectly normal place, but stays away from the Nth. peckham estate @ night.
  • Peckham isn't rough! not really, I mean its got a rep, like anywhere in south london, people think Brixtons rough, but its not. You all should spend a day in peckham, not because its that great but to proove its just like anywhere else really, just smells more.
  • If you are unfortunate enough to visit Peckham, drive through the area with the doors locked, hide your valuables, DO NOT stop to ask for directions, and maybe you'll live to see the next beautiful area Camberwell Green, Fantastic
  • all you country boys who think you're the dogs bollox should spend a day in Peckham. You wouldn't last five minutes
  • As well as Trev or Simon did you know that Vernon the model, who's been on tv and everything, also lives there? I know because I had the great honor of seeing him there...
