Hidden Southwark

Southwark is a diverse and unique borough as you’ll find anywhere in the UK.

Whether you are rushing around the commuter hub to the north, or strolling around the tranquil pathways of Dulwich village to the south. Whether you are immersed in the hustle and bustle of Peckham, or snapping up a bargain at the East Street market in Walworth.

We want to hear about the hidden places in the borough that you work in or you call home. What are the secrets that few people are privy to? What hidden gems can you discover if you wander off the beaten track?

Help us celebrate all that Southwark has to offer!

If you have any suggestions let us know in the comments section below and see what other people are saying!

Alternatively you can drop us a line at engage@communitysouthwark.org.

Not that we’re trying to rip-off TimeOut Magazine or anything…


*This is Cross Bones Graveyard, a pauper's burial ground with a legend stretching back to medieval times...

    Have you seen the fabulous bronze statue of Jacob the Dray Horse on Queen Elizabeth Street, just west of Shad Thames, outside The Circle development? If you want to explore the area, you can download a free copy of the Shad Thames Trail on the resources page of www.loveshadthames.org

    The amazing graffiti area and graffiti artists on Leake Street under Waterloo Station. Different every time you visit!

    Also on Leake Street is the awesome theatre The Vaults. Puts on fringe theatre and all sorts of cool things.
