London | Dulwich Village

I’ve mentioned in one of my posts about Hampstead or Highgate before, that one of my favourite things about London isn’t being in the “City” (zone 1), at all. I love all the little villages that London grew around and swallowed, but have managed to keep their own village feel and identity. Dulwich Village in SouthEast London is one of those places. Plus it’s just a short stroll down the road for me, so it definitely beats having to cross the river. 

I recommend coming in the spring, when all the trees are just about to blossom on a sunny day and walking through the picturesque streets and (very) expensive homes. One of my favourite things about living South of the River is our amazing access to green space, and Dulwich Park is no exception! And if you get caught out by some bad weather, the Dulwich Picture Gallery is a great place to while away an afternoon. 

Dulwich is also full of restaurants, cafes, coffee houses and boutiques so it’s easy to spend more money on a casual afternoon out than you ever intended!
