Dulwich Village is an unexpectedly rural area located in the London Borough of Southwark. With its grand mansions, beautifully green open spaces and large leafy trees, it is quite possible to forget that you are in Zone 3 of London and only a short distance from the city centre. Thanks to its status as a conservation zone, the area remains refreshingly uncommercialised and boasts the original shopping high street complete with original 18th and 19th century buildings. Unsurprisingly, Dulwich Village, part of the larger Dulwich district which also includes East and West Dulwich, is the most exclusive area of Dulwich and has the highest property prices.
The main high street, actually named Dulwich Village, offers a charming collection of boutiques, cafes, restaurants and delicatessens as well as a good range of services such as a dry cleaner and an optician. The highly rated The Bookshop is popular with locals thanks to the expert reading advice given by the staff and the seven days a week opening times. If you are looking for somewhere to dine out, the Dulwich Village has its own Pizza Express and a Cafe Rouge. The Crown and Greyhound pub is also a popular choice; it serves a full menu and has a wide range of drinks on offer including over 20 different lagers, beers and ciders.
In terms of green spaces, Dulwich Park is a beautiful 72 acre park right in the centre of the village. Its numerous attractions include a boating lake, tennis courts, bowling green, and a vegetable garden where volunteers can share their produce. You can also hire bicycles, from tandem to recumbent, to discover the park further and for running enthusiasts, the park is home to the Dulwich Park Runners.
The nearest train station is a 3 minute walk away in North Dulwich and offers regular trains to London bridge that take just 17 minutes. Although a little further away, West Dulwich train station runs frequent and direct trains to London Victoria and London Blackfriars. There are good bus links as Dulwich is served by London buses with routes: 3, 12, 37, 40, 176, 185, 197, 201, 484, 450, P4 and P13. If you're travelling by car, the A205 South Circular runs through Dulwich and, if you're a frequent flyer, Gatwick Airport can be reached by car in under an hour.
Dulwich Village is the most exclusive area of Dulwich. Beautifully grand Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian detached and semi-detached properties abound and there is a wide range of large 5 and six bedroom properties and even some 7 and 8 bedroom homes to be discovered. In addition, you can find some superb 1920s and 1930s spacious and extremely luminous properties. Many of these houses sit on large plots of land and have been renovated and transformed into luxury contemporary homes.
