The SE5 postcode, a part of South London and the Boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, include locations such as Peckham, Camberwell, and Denmark Hill.
With a blend of old and new, SE5 has a strong African and Afro-Caribbean influence and is home to many students because of the various amenities located close by. One of these amenities includes London’s most precious art spaces – the South London Gallery, where you can view some of the best modern artwork, exhibitions and live art events from around the globe. Conveniently located next door is Camberwell College of Arts, which holds extensive courses and also exhibits shows and events. Internationally recognised and one of the UK’s finest hospitals, King’s College Hospital is also located in Denmark Hill. To take your mind off work and relax, you can visit the stunning Burgess Park; a public park with 140 acres of open green space, a cycle track, football pitches and other sports pitches as well as a fishing lake.
SE5 being a rather small district has only one London Overground Station; Denmark Hill, which can be used for a quick and easy commute around the Capital and also to get to major destinations and attractions such as Westfield Shopping Centre. Plus, a number of bus routes service the area and there are major roads such as Camberwell Road, Southampton Way and Coldharbour Lane, which can be used to get from one end of the district to the other and beyond.
