Visiting Elephant & Castle can be a disorienting experience for any who haven't visited previously. On exiting the tube station, you are confronted by a large, busy ring road, with a market to one side and a pub to the other and a large memorial to founder of electricity Michael Faraday, who was born nearby; the area is also usually thronging with people. Situated in the Borough of Southwark, the area is steeped in history and was the site where protestants were burnt at the stake during the Marian persecutions in the 16th century, and like quite a few London districts, it was named after a tavern, where the local court met.

The area developed significantly during the Georgian and Victorian eras, after the construction of Westminster Bridge, which improved transport drastically and created the junction atop which the area sits, connecting Old Kent Road and New Kent Road.

Despite a brief period where it was known as 'the Piccadilly of the South', the area has a string immigrant community, with plenty of Columbian and Chinese restaurants in the area, and despite good links to the City of London and Westminster, the area isn't fully gentrified as of yet. However, Elephant & Castle's proximity to Waterloo, and fantastic transport links, with a tube station servicing the Northern Line and Bakerloo, have made it a popular place to live and areas of social housing sit alongside trendy modern flats and conversions. From Elephant & Castle, you have a direct link to Paddington Station, a terminus for the Heathrow Express Train, so it is in a great location for tourists to explore London.

Elephant & Castle is perhaps best known for its shopping centre, initially supposed to be a revolutionary new design, dwindling funds meant that the size had to be reduced and when it opened only 29 of a potential 120 shops were trading.

The original design was a rather unfortunate example of ugly, 60s brutalist architecture, which was doing the landscape no favours, but the decision to paint the whole centre, including the statue of an elephant outside it bright pink, didn't necessarily improve matters! The shopping centre is still a rather garish colour, but locals have embraced it with a wry sense of humour.

The Imperial War Museum is located nearby, which is a fascinating, if occasionally harrowing, place to visit, and the famous Ministry of Sound nightclub offers an energetic and colourful night out. Corsica Studios also offers a huge industrial space to dance in. Restaurants in the area are largely chains such as Nandos and Pizza Exoress, but due to the prominence of the Latin American community, there are several fantastic eateries to try. The Latin American community are actually a huge part of the plan to regenerate the area further, with plans for more shops and restaurants to turn this part of the city into a 'Latin American corridor'.

Hotels in Elephant & Castle and in the surrounding areas of Waterloo and Bermondsey range from largely business-oriented chain hotels, to stylish boutique hotels, to budget options, which vary in quality but offer very affordable rooms in a well connected area. You may not have the most elegant surroundings, but with great food, a lively clubbing scene and central London just minutes away by tube, you can easily ignore the big pink elephant outside the shopping centre.
