"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."

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.
