I say give Elephant and Castle shopping centre a break! At least it's not full of chains ;) And, there's an adorable pink elephant on top - brilliant!
I saw the positive in the place when I popped into Boots yesterday to get some photos printed (tip! South London Boots with photo printing machine) and am surprised at all the negative press it's received here. There's popcorn, and music and...more
