If you are looking for an area that is close to the heart of London, but which seems like a world away, Dulwich is well worth considering. The travel time to London Bridge takes less than 20 minutes. Still, with a conservation status, leafy streets and plenty of appealing green spaces, Dulwich and Dulwich Village is a destination that has idyllic charm.
Dulwich Park is a welcoming oasis
If you are looking for a place where you can relax and unwind, Dulwich Park has to be of merit. This is a 72-acre park, and while it was refurbished in 2006, there is plenty of traditional charm that helps you shut off the pressure and challenges of the modern world.
With tennis courts, a bowling green, a boating lake and the chance to hire tandem bicycles, this is a park that is different from most of the green spaces you will find in London.
Anyone looking for a different option will find Brockwell Park to be equally as charming. This park boasts of a walled flower garden, a lido and a 19th-century clock tower. This park plays host to the Lambeth Country show each summer, which is a popular day out.
The commute is simple from Dulwich
North Dulwich is a short walk from the heart of the village and is found on the border of Zone 2 and 3. You can travel to London Bridge in 17 minutes, and this is a frequent service. You may find you are located closer to West Dulwich Station, and this provides four trains an hour to Victoria Station.
Enjoy the fruits of local life
If you want to make the most of domestic life, there is a great deal to be said for immersing yourself in the local culture and produce. We believe Dulwich Farmers Market, which opens every Saturday, is a fantastic destination for residents. You can enjoy fruit, veg, meat, cheeses, bread, preserves, juices and sweet treats from local producers. You also have the chance to quiz the makers of the food, so you will know what is on offer.
There is a lot to be said for the social factor provided by the market, and we know many local families meet up regularly. Anyone looking for an informal setting to let their kids have fun with others will appreciate what is on offer.
The laidback nature of Dulwich provides the perfect antidote to the busy pace of modern life. We believe this is a fantastic area of the capital, and it is no surprise many families are looking into the area.
