Stretching from Elephant & Castle in the north and going into Camberwell Road, the Walworth Road is the main shopping street for the middle of the borough.
There are a whole host of shops and restaurants, pubs and businesses to choose from. Often seen as a place that you go through to get somewhere else, we stopped off and sampled some of what Walworth currently has to offer...

Opened in April last year, a Guangzhou Cuisine restaurant with a touch of the grand styles reminiscent of Hong Kong in its grandeur, Dragon Castle was met with loud acclaim by food writers and critics.
They praised the excellent dim sum, wide variety of dishes, freshness of ingredients, superb cooking techniques, friendly service with a willingness to please and all "NOT at West End Prices" in the "deprived wilderness of Elephant and Castle". Did all this go to their head? NOT LIKELY! It remains a fantastic setting for excellent food, friendly service and without the need for a second mortgage. Open Mondays to Saturdays from Noon till 11:00pm and on Sundays and Bank Holidays 11:30am to 10:30pm. Dim Sum daily till 5:00pm.
