#DiscoverDeptford – Deptford delights for the Bank Holiday

Deptford has to be our favourite corner of South-East London, home to not only our gorgeous Deptford Foundry development, but also the busy high street with its fresh market produce and eclectic selection of bars and restaurants. There is never a dull moment here.

This summer bank holiday gives you the perfect excuse to dive in and explore all that Deptford has to offer! From the rows of indie shops, all the way to the railway arches of Deptford Market Yard, take the time to get better acquainted with the area this long weekend.

To make the most of it, read on below for our top highlights this bank holiday.

Deptford Market Yard

Tucked away under the newly renovated railway arches of Deptford’s train tracks you will find the Deptford Market Yard – a true local gem. Made up of 14 arches, seven shops above the carriage ramp, two restaurants and a sprawling new market space filled with local independent businesses, creative spaces and all the best food and drink in the area, you will have your work cut out on where to look first!

Spend a lazy summer day at the Yard exploring all there is on offer. With the full market out on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, make sure to check out the open times for the individual businesses before visiting on any other day.

A Handy Picnic Delivery

If you are looking for something slightly different to kick off this bank holiday weekend, why not opt for a catered summer picnic in the park delivered straight to you? Perfect for a summer birthday or just a special treat, these personalised picnic deliveries range from an epic three course brunch, complete with mimosa, to a fun filled taco feast. Why not take yours and wander down to Greenwich Park where you can enjoy one of London’s most iconic views? Or you could visit Deptford Park, which was once a market garden belonging to the Evelyn Family.

Available to order straight to your door this bank holiday, orders can be placed online here.

London Velo

We wouldn’t be surprised if you were one of the many Londoners who have fallen madly in love with a good bike ride the past few months. This weekend is the perfect excuse to get out and enjoy the fresh air while also adding a new stop to your regular cycle route – the London Velo in Deptford.

This quirky little pit stop is one of the many bike shop cafés that have sprung up all over the city, and we can assure you, it’s a good’un! Starting off in Deptford, you’ll want to drop into the London Velo nice and early to grab a coffee to fuel your journey and also book in for a quick bike service too. Then it’s just an easy 9-minute cycle over to the glorious Greenwich Park which provides plenty of cycle lanes for you to enjoy.
