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.

What locals say about SE21

  1. I love the local Foxtons branch, they are so friendly!

  2. We have everything in Dulwich!

  3. I love the easy link into London, direct bus straight into town.

  4. Good schools in the area, such as Dulwich College, J.A.G.S and Alleyn's School.

  5. For breakfast, its got to be either Toasted on Lordship Lane for great coffee and the best toast and jam or Gail's in Dulwich Village for a breakfast meeting over smoked salmon and chive pancakes.

  6. I recommend heading for a long walk with a coffee in Dulwich Park, then admiring the art at the Dulwich Picture Gallery before indulging in a cupcake at Le Chandelier

  7. For families with children, The Horniman Museum and Gardens is a great destination and there's even an Aquarium too. My wife and I love to check out the museum exhibitions from time to time. We're also spoilt for choice for green spaces.
