An up-and-coming area of South London, Camberwell has many hotels that will help guests see the most of the English capital. The district of Camberwell, around 2.5 miles from Charing Cross, puts visitors near to famous London sights in the Borough of Southwark.
Camberwell hotels make for a 20- to 30-minute journey to central London, but the area has its own charms to entice visitors. Once a rural escape from the capital of London, Camberwell still offers parks and gardens, but maintains the same modern sophistication as the rest of the city.

Visitors to hotels in Camberwell will have all the sights and experiences of central London at their disposal, but will also be able to see the best of the Camberwell district. With streets lined by well-preserved Georgian housing and a central green for relaxing, this district still gives a reprieve from central London attractions.
What's more, Camberwell has developed into its own entity within the city, and now has many cafes, restaurants and pubs that draw patrons from across the city. The Camberwell College of Arts means the area's a cultural hub as well, with the South London Gallery and House Café nearby.
