"London's tollgates are no longer in use bar one, which belongs to The Dulwich Estate and allows access to their private section of College Road."

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

Gary Howorth

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.

The Shala - Postnatal Massage

The Shala
After the birth, post-natal massage can provide an invaluable opportunity for mother's to allow time for self-nurture. Ideally, all new mothers would have a massage as soon after birth as possible, to help the muscles release the muscle memory of labour, gently aid healing and help with spinal realignment. These are all important factors in helping your body to return to its pre-pregnancy state. Post-natal massage can be easily done with your baby tucked up beside you, or feeding. Website

About West Dulwich

West Dulwich is an area in southeast London, that straddles the London Borough of Lambeth and the London Borough of Southwark. Croxted Road and South Croxted Road mark the boundary between London Borough of Southwark on the east and London Borough of Lambeth to the west. Best known for the respected Dulwich College, the Dulwich Estate is a relatively affluent residential area which has a sleepier feel to it than that of neighbouring areas such as East Dulwich or West Norwood. West Dulwich has two main parades of shops, the main one being on the Park Hall road junction, where Croxted Road becomes South Croxted Road. The other parade is on Rosendale Road which features more typical local shops. Dulwich Wood, Dulwich Park and Brockwell Park are all within walking distance of West Dulwich. Thurlow Park and Belair Park are by the south circular where it enters and leaves the area. Being so close to Dulwich Village means that there are many small pockets of greenery such as those on Park Hall Road, Rosendale Road and College Road.
