Knowles of Norwood

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 Health and Leisure Centre

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

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

West Norwood Feast

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.

The Railway Tavern

The Railway Tavern

It's like a Tardis, has a huge garden with beach huts, amazing food and clientele, shows screen sports but best of all are the bands and entertainment.

The Conquering Hero

The Conquering Hero

Totally the best Sunday roast and pint around.

La Gastronomia

La Gastronomia

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

Norwood Grove House

Norwood Grove House

Known locally as the "White House", Norwood Grove House and its well-tended formal gardens were opened in 1926 by the future King Edward VIII. It is the centrepiece of Norwood Grove itself; a large expanse of grass from which you can overlook Streatham and its surrounding areas. It is thoroughly underutilised and all the better for it!

The Rookery

The Rookery

A walled garden that would not look out of place in a BBC costume drama. Stunning throughout the year and still relatively undiscovered by the residents of South London. The gardens are beautifully maintained by a justifiably proud set of volunteers.

Le Tour de France

Le Tour de France

The best fresh coffee, croissants and bread. Lovely family-owned independent. Get there early for their bread and croissants - they sell out fast.

Brown & Green Cafe

Brown & Green Cafe

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

Four Hundred Rabbits

Four Hundred Rabbits

Head to this pizza restaurant for a delicious gelato on a warm summer's day in the Crystal Palace Triangle!

Palace Spice

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!

Crystal Palace Aquarium

Crystal Palace Aquarium

Everything you need for your fish and reptile needs, even little critters like locusts!

La Bruschetta

La Bruschetta

They serve tasty lunchtime salads at this local cafe.

Joanna's Restaurant

Joanna's Restaurant

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

Why not explore the nearby areas of West Norwood, Norwood, Norbury, Crystal Palace, Streatham, Streatham Hill, Upper Sydenham, Dulwich, Herne Hill and East Dulwich

"The Greek inspired necropolis at West Norwood cemetery has seen over 200,000 burials including such illustrious figures as cookery writer Mrs Beeton, the pioneer of the machine gun Sir Hiram Maxim and the head of the Doulton pottery dynasty who had an entire vault created from terracotta."

You can be at London Victoria or London Bridge in less than half an hour from West Norwood Station.

Stephanie Kele

From independent shops, green spaces and a short commute, Herne Hill is the perfect combination!

Gary Howorth

St Luke's Church, West Norwood was built in the early 19th century and sits at the top of Norwood High Street.

What locals say about SE27

  1. I love West Norwood as it is a vibrant, friendly community with so much to do.

  2. A good community spirit. We have resided in Norbury (Pollards Hill) for over 30 years, having raised three children here. We have all benefited from living in a tranquil area with good neighbours, which provides great transport links.

  3. Awesome views and fastest travelling needs.

  4. It's easy. People from all backgrounds rub along just fine. Feels a bit of a hidden gem but likely to change with a new swimming pool/gym and leisure centre and cinema too. Some great local treasures like Rosebery's auction house and South London Theatre and again, will become more of a destination as SLT are planning to do major restoration works to the theatre. Think Balham 15 years ago when it was at the tipping point.
