What locals say about East Dulwich

  1. I love East Dulwich because of its homely feel!

  2. East Dulwich - city life, village lifestyle!

  3. From cool bars to cosy pubs, fantastic restaurants to some great independent shops, East Dulwich has it all - but still manages to maintain a ‘villagey feel’. The area boasts lots of open spaces with Dulwich Park, Dulwich Woods and Peckham Rye close – all of which mean you’re unlikely to want to stray too far from home on the weekend.

  4. Great local amenities such as the boutiques and great pubs on Lordship Lane, whilst also being within walking distance of nearby Peckham, which has cool independent cafes, restaurants and bars. Close to Peckham Rye Park and Common, which is great in the summer to hang out on, or get involved with the numerous sporting activities it houses during the summer. The area has fantastic transport links with the Overground stations nearby, plus extensive bus routes that allow access to all parts of London.

  5. A really terrific place to bring up a family. Good primary schools, lots of parks and green spaces, a lovely friendly community and a great high street.

Child-friendly activities near East Dulwich

Ole Kids

The Herne Tavern
We developed the Olé Kids curriculum through years of observing children and what they like doing at different stages cognitively, emotionally and physically. We picked out the best elements of children's classes and coupled it with our knowledge, research, tons of love and respect for children and our endless passion for creating a Spanish speaking community. In simpler words, we are designing the classes that we want our own children to have access to! Learning Spanish has never been as easy and fun as with us! Website

Tingalingo French Classes

Rye Books
Tingalingo classes combine music, songs, rhymes, stories and play in French, for pre-school children. Learning another language should be fun. And research shows that being introduced to a second language at a young age makes it easier to learn others at a later stage and also helps the development of academic skills. With that in mind, Tingalingo was born. Places are limited, so it's first come first served! £50 for 5 weeks or £12 for drop-in Website
