Streatham Hill

A locals' guide to Streatham Hill

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

Thomas Howe

"A mixture of independent and high street shops line Streatham High Road, which has seen great development over the past few years."

Luke Tubb

"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..."

Where do Streatham Hill locals go?

Brooks and Gao

One of only a few decent coffee shops on Streatham High Road. It's slightly pricier than its competitors, but for the quality of the food and coffee, it's justified.

Tariq Halal Meats

An amazing butchers in Streatham that is part of a small franchise of equally great stores.

Hood

A great recently opened restaurant on Streatham Hill. Go here for something completely different to the other places in the area.

Perfect Blend

Lovely place for a coffee in the morning before getting in to the office and amazing cooked breakfasts with thick milkshakes. It turns into a bar at night with an extensive cocktail menu and it's open until 2am!

La Casita

A fantastic choice of Spanish food and drink all at great value!

Negril

The best Caribbean food and the rum punch really packs a punch! The platter is amazing and the saltfish fritters with the gravy are unbelievable...

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 Lido Cafe

A modern British restaurant overlooking Brockwell Lido. Great for breakfast - plus lunch and dinner for that matter!

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.

Herne Hill Market

A buzzing Sunday market, right near Herne Hill Station.

Off the Cuff

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

Kerbisher & Malt

Sustainable and stylish fish and chips that taste fantastic!

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

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

The Ginger Pig

As well as sublime sausage and stilton rolls, the Ginger Pig sells a great variety of lunch treats. Limited vegetarian options, but they do serve many of their products with rocket.

Boqueria

Best tapas restaurant in London!

Tilly

"Streatham Hill is such a lovely place to live. It was always okay actually, but in the last couple of years it has just improved so much. We are loving all our new cafes, bars and restaurants. We can access Balham, Brixton and Dulwich within minutes, plus the beautiful green spaces of Tooting Bec, Streatham Common & Rookery and Brockwell Park, and our house is gorgeous with a large garden. Property prices have increased qu... more

"Streatham Hill borders desirable suburbs like Clapham and Balham but the property prices are far more affordable. The transport links are fantastic with regular buses, easy access to the rail station. Whilst bars and restaurants are starting to establish themselves in the area, it's also convenient to get to surrounding areas. A safe and quiet area without the high property prices."

"In the '70s and '80s, 32 Ambleside Avenue, Streatham was used as a brothel run by infamous madam Cynthia Payne. Here, well heeled gentlemen, including MPs and judges, could exchange luncheon vouchers for the women's services."

  1. About Streatham Hill

    Streatham Hill is a residential area to the north of Streatham in South London. Development accelerated after the opening of Streatham Hill railway station on the West End of London and Crystal Palace Railway in 1856. Some estates, such as Telford Park to the west of Streatham Hill were spaciously planned with facilities such as tennis clubs. Another generously sized development was Roupell Park, the area near Christchurch Road promoted by the Roupell family. Other streets adopted more conventional suburban layouts. There is now a mixture of buildings from all architectural eras of the past 200 years.
