southlondon the definitive guide to South East & South West London
  A Guide to  Rye Lane (SE15) Shops etc






This is an updated selection of of some of the best independent shops, bars, cafes and restaurants on Rye Lane, Peckham. Rye Lane’s identity has changed over the years from a Victorian shopping street with C20 department stores (Jones & Higgins and Holdron's) to a mixture of Afro-Caribbean shops and a slew of new cafes and bars catering for a younger crowd due to the attractions of the Bussey Building along with  the opening of the London Overground in C21. The Bussey Building and Copeland Park remain the heart of hipsterdom in SE15.
