Peckham (pronounced /ˈpɛkəm/) is a district in south London, England, located in the London Borough of Southwark. It is situated 3.5 miles (5.6 km) south-east of Charing Cross. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London.[1] The 2001 Census found that Peckham had a population of 11,381[2] and the Office for National Statistics estimated 19,500 residents in 2005.[3]

Peckham is a high-crime area with high levels of gang violence, for which it has a reputation, despite a £290 million regeneration programme in the late 1990s and early 2000s.[4][5][6] Camberwell and Peckham, the constituency that contains Peckham, is one of the most deprived in the country.
