Holdrons Arcade is ‘a corridor of wonders, housed in an old 1930’s shopping mall’, as described in an article by Londonist. Holdrons has been widely acknowledged as a hotspot of new creative talent and rising street culture, as well as being a culturally diverse space, bringing together different groups from Peckham under one roof. As Vogue UK say, ‘nothing beats Holdrons’.

Here are just some of the reasons to visit Holdrons Arcade.
