I’ve been living in Brockley for three years and love the open green spaces and tree-lined streets. Fed up with the hustle and bustle of east London I was pleasantly surprised by the peacefulness and the friendliness of the community. I still can’t quite believe I’m in zone 2 of London. I often head over to Hilly Fields to walk my dog and love the Brockley farmers' market on Saturday mornings. I love heading to the London Beer Dispensary for drinks, the Brockley Mess for a lazy weekend brunch or heading to the Orchard for one of the best Sunday lunches I’ve ever had! I’ve definitely found my home in Brockley.
