Welcome to Denmark Hill

Originally known as Camberwell High Street, Denmark Hill took its current name from Queen Anne's husband Prince George of Denmark, who used to favour the area as a hunting ground. Suburban building projects began springing up here in the 1780s, and today it's swelled into a prominent London community.
