Welcome to East Dulwich

East Dulwich is a district of south London, in the borough of Southwark, Near the edge of the City of London. Though its history stretches back to the Saxon era, it only began being developed into the suburban area it is today in the 19th century. It's served by several transport links between south London and Surrey, and is home to the non-league community football club Dulwich Hamlet.

Seeing Southwark

Southwark is a borough in south London, hugging the south bank of the Thames with a range of transport links to the City of London. While it has a small, contemporary arts culture, it's one of the most popular areas to visit in London for those interested in history. Charles Dickens spent many years as a young man here, and it's home to several famous museums, including the Imperial War Museum, and its WWII warship the HMS Belfast.

See the classics at Dulwich Picture Gallery

Dulwich Picture Gallery holds a special significance among London's many museums, as it's the world's first ever purpose-built art gallery. Founded in the early 19th century when Francis Bourgeois donated his extensive collection of Old Masters for public inspection, the gallery is home to a number of classic European works, and has an ever-changing program of more contemporary exhibitions.
