London area of East Dulwich guide

What to do and where to stay in London's East Dulwich neighbourhood

Despite being badly damaged during the War, the old Victorian suburb of East Dulwich has undergone ample gentrification in recent years. In Victorian times, the area's population was just over 1,500 until 5,000 houses were built in East Dulwich in the 1870s. World War II saw East Dulwich nose-dive somewhat, but its current revival is clear for all to see. Blessed with some of London's best independent shops and located near some large green spaces, East Dulwich has become very popular with well-off Londoners starting up families but looking to live within striking distance of the city centre. Popular spots include The Plough pub, the excellent Palmerston gastropub and the old-fashioned children's sweet shop, Hope & Greenwood. On Fridays and Saturdays there is a small market on the North Cross Road with antiques and specialist food stalls. On Lordship Lane, the derelict grade II listed "Concrete House", the only surviving example of a 19th century concrete house in England, stands.
