Why move to Dulwich, Peckham Rye, Nunhead or Camberwell?

Dulwich may have a London postcode, but our area has a friendly, welcoming feel that's rare in the capital. For example, you'll often find neighbours actually talk to each other here. The last ten years have seen many young professionals and young families making their homes here, attracted by the great primary schools and the fact that it is only 12 minutes from London Bridge as well as all the things to do and places to go out. This has given our area a new, younger feel too, reflected in the types of shops and business that are found on Lordship Lane.

The area around Peckham Rye station has been transformed of late. No longer a quiet, unremarkable back street high road with not much going on, it is now one of London's most interesting areas with a lots of places to eat and drink, home shops, vintage shops and much more.

The East London tube line provides connections to the City and East London within minutes on the train, the renaissance of Dulwich, Peckham Rye, Nunhead and Camberwell is only set to continue and has seen a change to the high street with new shops, eateries and businesses arriving and more and more young professionals and families buying flats and houses in the area. In short, there's never been a better time to make your home here.

Some things to love about living in Dulwich

The Palmerston a superb local restaurant. High end dining in a lovely setting.

The Actress is a good all rounder on the pub side of things. Brilliant pizza and a big screen for the football and rugby.

The Crooked Well on Grove Lane is another great place to eat and the Sunday roasts are amazing!

The Dogfather sells the best hot dogs on a Saturday from his stall on North Cross road. Well worth a visit.

The Franklin is another superb local restaurant

A little bit of history

Just north of Forest Hill and south of Camberwell, Dulwich was a part of Surrey until 1889 when it became a part of London. Until Victorians spread south and developed the area it was mainly woodland and orchards. And all the way up till 1920 farmland existed in Dulwich, with the local dairies grazing their cows off Court Lane.

Still today, even though we are only 12 minutes from London bridge, the Dulwich area is not over developed by modern standards, offering a pleasing blend of town and country. And even to this day, most Dulwich gardens will boast at least one fruit tree.
