Ash Avenue at Castle Square, is a new pedestrianised road that is home to five diverse businesses, from clothing alterations, a watch and phone shop, women’s fashion and a hair and beauty salon. Ash Avenue can be accessed from Castle Square or New Kent Road.
Castle Square is a temporary and affordable retail and restaurant space, created to ensure Elephant and Castle remains a vital and enlivened shopping destination whilst the new town centre is being developed. Castle Square can be found on Elephant Road opposite the overground station.
Elephant Park comprises a wide-ranging mix of shops and restaurants, start-ups, leisure, street food, and independent stores most of which, to date, can be found on Sayer Street. Access is from Walworth Road and Heygate Street (or Castle Square in late 2020).
