Joolz Guides: Peckham Rye – Spiffing London Walking Tour


Another of these fun, quirky videos

One of the many reasons I like these videos is that he visits so many places I used to know years ago. It is incredibly nostalgic and fun. I used to live quite near Peckham and often visited. Good to see the changes.

This is a rather excellent walk around Peckham Rye in South London. One of the most multicultural parts of London with a splendid history dating back to King Henry I. Did you know that if you look around there are angels all around in Peckham. William Blake saw them in an oak tree here. There’s pie and eels at Manze’s, the golden mile shopping district which once rivalled Oxford Street, a Victorian bike shop, Persian supermarket and cafe and many other places with the usual fun banter. Did you know there’s a knife forge under the arches beneath the station? A local brewery with the freshest beer in Peckham and the best vegan Restaurant in the world, Omni (I know because it’s my cousin’s!)
