Where do Dulwich and surrounding areas locals go?

Horniman Museum and Gardens

A quirky, free, family-friendly museum and gardens.

Rocca

Delicious Italian food in delightful Dulwich Village - the linguine comes highly recommended!

Le Chardon

Proper French food, an interesting 1880s Grade II listed interior and a piece of local history, as it used to be a David Greig shop. Put your handbag on the marble shelves and try the lobster, bouillabaisse or coq au vin and wash it down with a fabulous wine choice. I always have a good meal here.

East Dulwich Picturehouse and Café

This small cinema serves everything from cakes to meals, cocktails to coffee and screens small independent films alongside Hollywood blockbusters. There are even reclining seats and 'love seats' if that's what you'd prefer...

La Gastronomia

A taste of the Mediterranean, this Italian deli also has a patio garden, where you can sit and enjoy their delicious dishes.

Off the Cuff

A wine bar with cheese, live music and cheap drinks. They also sell furniture...

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

So many activities for adults and children. I personally love the exercise classes, Zumba and Boxfit.

Yama Momo

Situated in the heart of East Dulwich on Lordship Lane, if you like Japanese food, you have to try Yama Momo. Great atmosphere, food and drinks!

The Begging Bowl

Thai street food with a tapas approach - a relaxed and friendly buzz, especially on the weekend.

West Norwood Feast

A community market in south London. Community comes together to taste, eat, drink and admire or buy all handmade items and all things that are on offer.

Brockwell Park

A great place for an early morning run, where you feel like you aren't even in London - yet you are only 10 minutes from central London on the Victoria line. There are tennis courts, a gym and a Lido too if running isn't your thing.

Federation Coffee

Delicious coffee made using Campbell and Syme beans, food made by Salon Brixton and sweet treats too.

The Prince of Wales

A Brixton institution, this bar has amazing roof terraces and serves food in the day too. You can dance the night away until the early hours when they have DJs playing.

Canavan's Peckham Pool Club

Where every good night ends...Peckham's pool club open 24/7!

Brixton Village Grill

A cheap and cheerful breakfast in trendy Brixton Village. This restaurant also serves lunch and dinner.

"Dulwich Picture Gallery was the first public art gallery in Britain. It was created from a collection of art compiled at the request of the King of Poland, but when he abdicated following Poland's conquest by Russia and Prussia, it left the curators with a massive collection. On their death they left it all to Dulwich College and decreed in their will that it must be displayed to the public."
