This is the fourth in our occasional series of articles about blue plaques of famous (and not-so-famous) people who lived in south London and the stories behind them. Sir Ernest Shackleton 1874-1922 Shackleton was a polar explorer who led four expeditions to the South Pole in the early years of the 20th century. In the […]
Borough Market is one of the treasures of south London and now firmly on the tourist trail. The best time to go these days is during the week, say Thursday, as Saturday is now heaving and Friday is not far off either. Apart from the amazing butchers, fishmongers, fruit ‘n veg and other speciality food […]
South London Blog is officially four years old – hurray!! During that time we’ve managed to go on a pretty decent gastronomic tour of south London – we may not have been to every district south of the river, but we’ve had a good try! SLB went to the Begging Bowl, on Peckham’s Bellenden Road, […]
Last Sunday we went to try and resolve our hangovers by checking out the ‘Recovery Brunch’ at The Clapham North Pub (no points for guessing where it is!). If you know the pub, you’ll know how good the food is, so we were keen to try out the brunch. When we arrived we were offered […]

This week we headed to Cake Boy in Battersea to take part in a baking master class to celebrate the collaboration between Cake Boy aka Eric Lanlard, patissier and celebrity chef, and craft brewers The Meantime Brewing Company of Greenwich. The collaboration is part of Meantime’s Pilot Series where the brewers get very experimental with […]
You’ve probably noticed that we love street art at SLB, particularly if you follow us on Twitter or Instagram. More or less every week we post a photo of a mural or occasionally a sculpture and by the response we get its obvious that you, our readers and followers, are just as keen as we […]
The top eight men in the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) rankings meet each year in the end of season tournament at the O2 in Greenwich (the women’s event is held in Singapore). Andy Murray produced a thrilling finish to the season last Sunday, winning the Barclays ATP World Tour Final and making the no.1 […]
A couple of months ago we were invited to the open day of Nunhead reservoir to see the magnificent views over London and you can read about that and the campaign to keep it open to the public on our recent blog post. However, while we were there it occurred to us that we’d never […]
