Camberwell, located just east of Brixton and west of Peckham is an up and coming artsy area. Camberwell has primarily been associated with art via the Camberwell College of Art and the Young British Artists who studied at Goldsmith's art department in Cormont Road. It has given its name to the Camberwell Beauty butterfly (Mourning Cloak Butterfly) and the Camberwell Carrot (see the film Withnail & I). It has a mix of urban high street and Georgian terraces and the landmark building William Booth Memorial Training College in Denmark Hill.
