Elephant and Castle

Walworth Road delights. I live in Elephant down Walworth Road and I love it so much! Yes the shopping centre is pretty worn out and dated but its well supported by a million bus routes and the tube.

From the station take a walk down Walworth Road and visit the empty Heygate Estate for some apocalyptic shots, you’ll pass Thread Needle Man (David Haye’s + Suggs tailor); if you are lucky you might even bump into Mad Frankie Fraser! On the left, you’ll find East Street Market which is saturated in interested stalls and colours. Further down Walworth Road, Liverpool Grove leads to St Peter’s imposing church, visit the coffee shop in the Crypt and get attacked by the squirrels and pigeons thriving in the grounds which used to be known as ‘Monkey Park’.
