The Heygate Estate is a large housing estate located in Walworth, Southwark, south London. The estate is currently being demolished as part of the regeneration of the Elephant and Castle area. It was home to more than 3,000 people.
The Heygate is well known for being one of the starkest examples of post-war urban decay in the United Kingdom. Its notoriety has led to it being used frequently as a filming location for music videos and movies. The estate is situated adjacent to Walworth Road and New Kent Road, and immediately east of the Elephant and Castle road intersection.
