Camberwell Guide

Your All In London guide to Camberwell


It is thought that the name ‘Camberwell’ originates from the old name for a British well, ‘Comberwell’, mainly because the area was known for having a plentiful supply of wells in Grove Park.

Situated centrally in the London Borough of Southwark, today's Camberwell is beginning to stake its place in the art world, thanks to the Camberwell College of Art, the South London Gallery, and a number of small exhibition and performance spaces. All of these have served to attact a young, artsy population who exist in stark contrast to the locals. The area has long had a reputation for crime, however its recent rise in trendiness has pushed up house prices. Elegant Georgian houses (particularly on Camberwell Grove) sit alongside council flats, many of which are now owned by private landlords. To match the recent surge in population expect to find plenty of attractive gastropubs and eateries.
