Location: London
Notable Businesses: Peckham Library, Anderson & CoSouth London Gallery, No 67

A ton of money has been poured into this South London neighborhood by the European Union, and though much of it was intended for housing and street renovation, funding has been used for projects such as the Tom Phillips mosaics adorning the wall of the The Peckham Experiment and The South London Gallery, where you can dine at No 67, a refurbished Victorian house. It is also home of the award-winning Peckham Library, which is best described as an upside-down letter "L."
