A locals' guide to SE21

"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."

Rocca

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

La Gastronomia

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

Knowles of Norwood

This lovely quirky bar is quiet mid-week for a lovely intimate meal or catch up. And lively on the weekend with a lovely band. Good atmosphere. Rustic style.

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.

Brown & Green Cafe

Grab a quick snack and a cup of coffee from this independent kiosk whilst on your daily commute.

Horniman Museum and Gardens

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

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

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

Crystal Palace Park

A fantastic spot for enjoying the sunshine!

Off the Cuff

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

Herne Hill Market

A buzzing Sunday market, right near Herne Hill Station.

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...

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.

The Exhibition Rooms

Beautifully prepared British meals made using the freshest ingredients, this restaurant is perfect for a special occasion!

Palace Spice

This Indian restaurant's food is delicious. I am constantly ordering too much, but never upset by the bill. They always offer me free drinks too!

Joanna's Restaurant

Mocktails and cocktails whilst enjoying lovely views of the City from the top of Crystal Palace Triangle.
