For elections to Parliament, the borough was represented by one constituency:

The area has several pubs, including the Dog & Bell which has a reputation for serving a range of cask ales;[71][72] and The Bird's Nest which has live music, film and art performances from local bands and artists.[73][74] The Town Hall of the former Metropolitan Borough of Deptford, built in 1905 with decorative sculpture by Henry Poole RA,[75] lies just outside Deptford, on the New Cross Road in New Cross. It was purchased by Goldsmiths College in 2000.[76]

But perhaps Deptford’s most telling nightlife trend is the renewed interest in snooker clubs. Over at Shades, the most popular spot on the high street, I learn from the Eastern European manager that ‘young women, cool women’ are signing up for membership. Snooker clubs might sound a little seedy but the same thing happened in Dalston to clubs such as Efes, which were a hangout for Florence Welch and the cool kids before Dalston was invaded by City boys.

The growth of the London conurbation had reached Deptford by the end of the eighteenth century but it had been a large industrial town well before this time: the Royal Docks and the Victualling Yard, which provisioned the Navy, and the various private dockyards, meant it was a prosperous and cosmopolitan town.

Deptford Market, a street market in Deptford High Street sells a range of goods, and is considered one of London's liveliest street markets.[60] In February 2005, the High Street was described as "the capital's most diverse and vibrant high street" by Yellow Pages business directory, using a unique mathematical formula.[61]

The two main road routes through Deptford are the A200 which runs along Evelyn Street and Creek Road,[88] and the A2 which runs along New Cross Road.[89] The A20 marks the southern boundary of the area, along Lewisham Way and Loampit Vale.[90]

From the mid-16th to the late 19th century, Deptford was home to Deptford Dockyard, the first Royal Navy Dockyard. The area declined as the Royal Navy moved out and commercial docks shut; the last dock, Convoys Wharf, closed in 2000.

Situated just off Deptford High Street, the Lounge is part of an innovative development sharing facilities with primary school Tidemill Academy, and including Resolution Studios, a development of apartments and studios.

Historically a part of Kent, Deptford became a Metropolitan Borough in 1900. This became part of Inner London in 1965, within the newly created county of Greater London.[1]

Much of the area along Creek Road, close to Greenwich, has also been redeveloped, with the demolition of the old Deptford Power Station and Rose Bruford College buildings. Aragon Tower on the Pepys Estate was sold by Lewisham Borough to fund regeneration plans for the estate; the award winning refurbishment into privately owned accommodation was featured in the BBC1 documentary, "The Tower".[58][59]

From 1932 until 2008 the site was owned by News International, which used it to import newsprint and other paper products from Finland until early 2000. It is now owned by Hutchison Whampoa Limited and is subject to a planning application to convert it into residential units,[116] though it has safeguarded wharf status.[117]

Deptford Town Hall was built between 1903 and 1905 on New Cross Road. The building is in a grand baroque style, featuring carvings of tritons and admirals to emphasise Deptford's maritime heritage. It is now used by Goldsmiths College.
