Herne Hill genuinely embodies the often over used phrase 'up and coming'. This elegant part of South East London is nestled between its big sister Dulwich Village to the South and vibrant Brixton to the North. Its strong sense of community and independence, coupled with exceptional schools (both state and independent) and its exclusion from the tube network mean that it has avoided the onrush of high street chains found in most gentrified districts. Instead, it benefits from an interesting selection of one off Delis, bakeries, coffee shops, bars and restaurants.
Brockwell Park offers space to roam within the shadow of the London skyline, as well as housing historic buildings such as Brockwell Hall, Lido and is close to the Herne Hill Velodrome - the only remaining cycle track in the capital.
