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.

Le Querce

Le Querce

The finest Italian restaurant I have ever been to, with a varied and fresh menu that caters for everyone from meat eaters to vegans and all in between without seeming to try! I book for anniversaries, birthdays, visits from friends - any excuse to attend the best restaurant I know of. It may not look particularly salubrious, but it is child-friendly by day and romantically candle-lit by night. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Try Time Kids' Rugby

Belair Park
We have created rugby based games and activities that increase kids enjoyment of sport as well as develop them physically. We know what keeps kids entertained and enthused and we believe passionately that our rugby play sessions for all kids from 2 years old to 7 years old, will give them the attributes they will need to go on and play the next level of rugby... or indeed any sport. There are 3 age groups that we run at every venue, Rascals (2-3.5), Scoundrels (3.5-5) and Scrummers (5-7). Kat and Nathan have been coaching children's rugby together for many years. They run the Dulwich site together with a "two heads are better than one" attitude. The Dulwich coaching team attempt to challenge the kids' imaginations and creativity to be weird and wonderful, working with the philosophy that when the kids are having fun, the rugby skills and athleticism inevitably follow.
