About Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre, London

The Elephant & Castle shopping centre is an iconic building in South London. Opened in 1965, the shopping centre has excellent transport links via London underground (Northern and Bakerloo lines) and the Elephant & Castle overground station.

It was the first covered shopping mall in London, however budget constraints limited the size and quality of the building.

The shopping centre is now in need of significant renovation. Although construction work is not planned until at least the middle of the decade, the shopping centre and other parts of the area have been earmarked for considerable redevelopment expenditure, including extended and improved retailing, leisure facilities, new homes and improved public realm.
