    Favelado Half to the Tower, please.

    I've never even heard of it. Tell me more. I'm quite curious. Just thought it went all suburban out that way.

    I went to Eltham once. As some else said - dull but edgy at the same time. Funny looks for walking in a pub and ordering a drink with my mates. Seemed like the lads in there didn't take to strangers kindly.

    I have only spent perhaps 90 minutes in st mary cray and that in 1991 but it scarred me to this day. I have never been in a more dismal part of london.

    Interesting how things have changed since this original post.

    Peckham has long been the trendy part of London and now New Cross is attempting to take that crown.

    I used to work in St Mary Cray a few years ago. It is a poor, isolated area with a large Gypsy and Traveller population. There is a large Gypsy and Traveller site in the area. Sadly that seems to kind of define the area. Gypsies and Travellers are one of the most marginalised of groups and there were quite a few tensions.
