We asked those working or living in Peckham to tweet us with their top local tips on the best shops/bars/restaurants/outdoor areas for our area guide - here's what they said...
@fourquartersbar #lerrynscafe #suncafe_peckham #alibabajuice all personal faves of ours :) but there are plenty of great ones
@TinieTamper @fourquartersbar for amazing vintage gaming and craft beers under one roof!
@TheGowlettArms @lerrynscafe and @alibabajuice the pick of anything new.
@lucy_yoga shops: @BiasonBellenden @ThreadsPeckham and @shop_lois cafés: @swelephant_cafe @lerrynscafe @PeckhamRefresh #peckham. also you can't miss out @alibabajuice or the amazing @VictorLabBussey fitness/dance/yoga studio #peckham. And of course for outdoor areas it's got to be @BoldTendencies and @frankspeckham where I run #RooftopYogaPeckham too

@LoveAndCake You can buy our cakes @andersonandco on Bellenden Rd, and the coffee's amazing there too
@peckhampeculiar We would recommend @bar_coffee - great local cafe near @QueensRdPeckham that's now doing Thai nights on Fridays & Saturdays!
@jumokefashola love/live peckham!
@bitwix @peckhampeculiar I'm just back from an excellent pizza in the chilled courtyard of the Sun Cafe in Havil Street
@adamwalther go for @frankspeckham - packed full of evening standard readers these days. They even do canapés that aren't ironic #peckham
@JamieHunt @peckhampeculiar @TheRyeSE15 and @theoldnunshead are both great
@kmintoft @peckhampeculiar @TheGowlettArms - the best-loved pub in #peckham
@the_max_doom @kmintoft @TheGowlettArms @HomesProperty @peckhampeculiar gowlett and the rye.
@alisoninlondon @peckhampeculiar everywhere along Bellenden Rd, but particularly @thebeggingbowl
@AndyWoodward85 Best of Peckham: @barstory @frankspeckham @PeckhamRefresh @Busseybuilding @PeckhamRyePark @PeckhamSprings @PeckhamBazaar

@nbtr_ The Begging Bowl for the most amazing Thai food anywhere!
@sian_wj Best of #Peckham - @PeckhamRefresh and @PeckhamPelican; & head down Peckham Rd for @StormbirdSE5 @CommunionBar @CrookedWell
@PeckhamRyeEats @peckhampeculiar Also @Save_Ivy_House @MontpelierPub @BambuniNunhead
@simonfrusher My Peckham pick: @CoolCatsCafe @flockandherd @PeckhamRefresh @suncafe_Peckham @general_store
@LondonCB for home decorating - #Peckham branch of @Brewerspaints - quality paints and advice. Grt work to the #Peckham Rye & park adjoining, by @lb_southwark , in last decade. Variety of different areas. Much used.
@juliecurlie Crossroads Cafe, Sam's Kebabs, Cod Fellas, Caribbean Spice
@JaneCommon @peckhampeculiar You have to mention Review bookshop, managed by Peckham lady of letters and best selling writer @eviewyld. Finally @PersiainPeckham has been a little shop of cheer for years: way before Peckham was fashionable. And Peckham has a literary festival, organised by @PeckhamPelican (I think). X
@PeckhamPelican @JaneCommon @peckhampeculiar ja, we hosted the festival which was organised by @literarykitchen
@LanreMakele don't forget @TheGowlettArms for the best pizzas in Peckham, @victoriainnse15 and of course @Peckhamplex. Did I say best pizzas in Peckham? I meant the whole of South London!
@BurgessPk Not that we're biased but #BurgessPark is a pretty good 'outdoor area'

@carlosfandango_ @relolondon there’s *lots* changing in Peckham. It’s spreading out from the Bellenden area in particular
@MartinaWardUK Inner city nature reserve: wildlondon.org.uk/reserves/belle… cheek by jowl with Lidl!
@relolondon #peckham Has it changed? All Rye Lane shops have steel shutters at night except for funeral directors.
@CaitlinZuleika @peckhampeculiar try @brick_brewery for Peckham Pils, cool beats & a lovely communal feel.
