"The name Herne Hill comes from an old spelling of "heron" that made its home here on the river Effra that used to run through it."

I do not know of a better park in London with more to offer than Brockwell Park - a lido, BMX track, miniature railway, tennis courts...

Jon Purvis

You can pop down to Herne Hill market on a Sunday and pick up some fresh produce or locally made clothing and accessories.

  1. Herne Hill is a slice of the countryside in London - a bustling area with a vibrant market every weekend, and a villagey feel. With the addition of the underrated and beautiful Brockwell park, I couldn't think of a better place to live within Zone 2.

  2. Brockwell Park, now a National Trust Park is excellent with a Lido and Gym, Tennis Courts, paddling pool, play park and a old house cafe in the centre.

  3. The Velodrome, so much history!
