Camberwell in South London was once a Metropolitan Borough that included many of the surrounding areas. Modern Camberwell, part of the London Borough of Southwark, still enjoys some of the benefits of a distinguished past.
Modern Camberwell is very different to the large historic borough which once encapsulated surrounding – and now separate – districts such as Peckham and Dulwich. But although those ‘glory’ days are gone, Camberwell still has a great location just a few miles south of London’s very centre, attracting young professionals and families who enjoy the mix of fine older houses and a fast-paced, modern urban vibe.
Using serviced apartments in Camberwell means gaining flexible and secure accommodation very much in the heart of London. The A202 runs through the centre of Camberwell, with Vauxhall Bridge only a little over a mile away. Although there is not an underground station in the district, Denmark Hill over ground station is in the south of Camberwell and Oval underground station, on the Northern Line, lies just outside to the northwest.
If visitors are staying in Camberwell serviced apartments in late summer, they may be lucky enough to catch a sight of the Camberwell Beauty butterfly, a visitor from Scandinavia that was first identified in Camberwell over 250 years ago.
