132 Peckham Rye was once the address of The King’s Arms public house, which was hit by a bomb during a World War II German air raid I which eleven people lost their lives.

The Elephant and Castle Underground Railway Station serves the Northern Line and the Bakerloo Line (originally named the Baker Street & Waterloo Railway). The apparition of a young woman has been seen several times by both staff and customers on the Bakerloo Line part of the station. She boards the train at Elephant and Castle Station, walks through the carriages then disappears with a trace.
