The local area guide to living in Dulwich

The South London region of Dulwich straddles the boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth, and is made up of three distinctly different areas: East Dulwich, West Dulwich, and Dulwich Village. Dulwich Village includes the traditional centre of Dulwich, and contains numerous buildings which have lasted since the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as the original commercial high street.

Much of the area’s infrastructure was established in the era of Elizabethan entrepreneur Edward Alleyn, who founded what is now known as the Dulwich Estate. This occurred during the 17th century, when he also built a local school and a chapel. Other notable residents include famed Romantic poet Lord Byron, who attended Dr William Glennie’s school between 1799 and 1801, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, and Margaret Thatcher, among others.

Information about the local residents

Dulwich is renowned for its Victorian terraced housing, with much still standing around East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane. Many of these buildings have now been converted into modern flats and apartment buildings. There are also semi-detached Edwardian houses to the north of Dulwich Common, which capture the town’s classical charm.

More than 50% of Dulwich’s population fall within the 25 to 54 age range, and professional employment rates are high. Almost 75% of residents are employed in management, directorial, or senior management positions. Home ownership rates are also high in Dulwich, with over half of all residents owning their home.

Nearby schools

Dulwich was home to the historic Alleyn’s College of God’s Gift, which was founded in 1619. The remnants of the school live on through the independent schools James Allen’s School for Girls, Dulwich College, and Alleyn’s School. All three schools received exceptional exam results last year, with the latter seeing a remarkable 100% of its GCSE pupils achieve five or more A* - C grades.

There are also two other independent schools in Dulwich, as well as two state schools – Sydenham, and Forest Hill School – which both received favourable Ofsted reports following their most recent inspections.

Getting around

While Dulwich itself does not have access to the London Underground, it is just a short trip away from four nearby stations: Forest Hill, North Dulwich, Sydenham Hill, and West Dulwich. All of these stations provide commuters with strong links to central London.

There are also a number of bus routes running directly from Dulwich to central London, as well as other parts of the city including Brixton, New Cross and Peckham in the south.

Motorists can access the M4 via the A205 South Circular, which runs directly through the district. However, since this road is often congested due to its single carriageway, it can add additional time to a journey.

Local shops

As Dulwich is divided into three different parts, there’s a great deal of variety when it comes to shopping. Dulwich Village is a great spot for diners, with its wide range of restaurants and gastropubs, as well as being home to a number of independent shops. East Dulwich is home to much of the town’s nightlife, with a range of bars and pubs centred around Lordship Lane. East Dulwich also features quirky side streets, where an increasing number of vintage shops can be found. Finally, West Dulwich is known as the go-to place for shopping, with its two central high streets being Croxted Road and Rosendale Road.

There is also a range of cultural and historical attractions in Dulwich, such as the Dulwich Picture Gallery. Established in 1817, this art gallery is home to one of the best collections of Old Masters works in the UK.

Dulwich Park also offers several historic sites, such as the Boating Lake, as well as 29 hectares of outdoor space and several picturesque picnic areas. It also has duck and rowing ponds, as well as a children’s play area and some sports facilities – including bowling lawns and tennis courts.
