"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."

In the heart of Dulwich, Dulwich Park is beautiful on a sunny evening, either walking the dog or taking a leisurely stroll...

I often pop into Pavilion Cafe in Dulwich Park - it's the perfect spot to take in the beautiful surroundings and they serve delicious food too.

From independent shops, green spaces and a short commute, Herne Hill is the perfect combination!
