About this location
The London region
London - one of the world's great capital cities....7A Beaulieu Close lies on the border between Camberwell and Dulwich, providing a mix of cultures and amenities depending on which way you walk.
Going south takes you into the affluent suburb of East Dulwich, centred on its vibrant high street; Lordship Lane.
Going north into Camberwell centre is an altogether different experience; very much more gritty....but all oysters need grit to make pearls, and there are definitely pearls if you know where to look.
Central London/Zone 2
Ruskin Park, complete with bandstand, tennis courts, playing fields, children’s playground, ponds and cafe, is literally on the doorstep (cross Denmark Hill, by the Fox on The Hill pub and you can’t miss it).
Brockwelll Park is about 1 mile away and has stunning views across London from the top of the hill and an old-fashioned (but modernised) Lido with a good cafe. It also has a great kid’s playground and sand/water play area.
Dulwich Park, a peaceful 1 mile walk away, is very tranquil and has a boating lake and a good cafe. The amenities of Dulwich Village are close by.
The best local place to shop is undoubtedly Lordship Lane in East Dulwich, which is a 10 minute walk away. There is a huge range of shops that will literally cater for your every need. Moxons is an excellent fishmonger, Pretty Traditional is an old fashioned and very friendly greengrocer (with attached cafe / juice bar). For meat, the best butcher is Guy Sparkes in his van on a Saturday and The East Dulwich Deli is superb (if expensive) for bread, cheese, cured meats and lots of other delicious things.
There are plenty of other shops selling gifts, clothes, shoes, homewares, cards, jewellery etc. Many of the shops are really good quality local independents – no “clone town Britain” here - but there are a few familiar brands too.
There is a buzzy market on Northcross Road (about half way up Lordship Lane on the left) on a Saturday with a variety of stalls including takeaway food.
Note - many of the shops on Lordship Lane are closed on a Monday.
Other places to go for food shopping include a farmers market that takes place every fortnight on a Saturday on Camberwell Green. For groceries, there is a very large Sainsbury’s supermarket (complete with a Starbucks) less than a 5 minute walk away (go to the top of Champion Hill and cross down the hill). For essential late night supplies, Costcutters, a smaller convenience shop is only a 2 minute walk away.
For a proper London shopping fix, Covent Garden is easy to get to on the 176 bus, Oxford Street/Regent Street and the King’s Road are also very accessible (see Time Out shopping guide for more details).
Eating Out / Pubs
The closest establishment is the Fox on the Hill pub, which is a 1 minute walk away. The atmosphere is convivial and it’s cheap (well, for London anyway), but not recommended for food.
The Phoenix pub, by Denmark Hill train station, is the preferred “local” and a good place for a drink or two. It has a friendly and lively atmosphere and serves good pub food (burgers, fish and chips etc) at around £10 per person.
Buddha Jazz, just around the corner from the Phoenix on Grove Lane, is a small friendly local restaurant serving Thai food and does takeaway also. A meal is around £10 per person.
For one of the best tapas restaurants anywhere in London, head to Angels and Gypsies on Camberwell Church Street. It has a great atmosphere and the food is seasonal and consistently wonderful (booking usually necessary). Each tapas dish is around £4-6, so a meal works out at around £15-20 per person.
The Crooked Well on Grove Lane (also in Camberwell) is a busy restaurant / bar, with a good quality, modern British menu, somewhat more sophisticated than most places in Camberwell! Starters around £5-10 and main courses around £15 per person.
Lordship Lane in East Dulwich (about 1 mile away) has a wealth of good bars and restaurants – Franklins (modern organic British) and Green and Blue (simple food, great wine) are particularly good independents.
If you are here in the summer, there is one very special place worth a visit....it’s called Franks Cafe, which is a short train ride to Peckham and is located on the top floor of a disused car park. It combines art, cocktails and simple food – check out www.frankscafe.org.
For really good quality fish and chips, the area is blessed with 2 excellent places: Ollies (which is near Herne Hill station, about 1 mile away) and the Sea Cow on Lordship Lane. Both are very reasonably priced.
We keep various takeaway menus so do please ask for a recommendation if you have a particular craving.
Other Local Attractions
There’s no need to go to the famous London attractions – which are always too busy anyway – we have some really world-class places much closer by:
- The Horniman Museum in Forest Hill (about 2 miles away or 15 mins by bus) is a wonderfully eccentric but very well organised museum with sprawling gardens and a good shop/cafe. It has a fantastically large and wide collection, including an excellent aquarium, musical instruments, and a huge display of natural history exhibits (much more accessible than the rather overwhelming Natural History Museum) as well as bizarre collections of objects from across the world. This museum is very welcoming and fascinating for children. Don’t miss the enormous stuffed walrus and the intriguing “Apostles Clock”.
- The Dulwich Picture Gallery (about 1 mile walk) is England’s first public art gallery, located in a beautiful setting adjacent to Dulwich Village/Park in a magnificent building designed by Sir John Soane in 1817. The permanent art collection includes many Old Masters and there are often interesting exhibitions and events.
- The South London Gallery (about 1 mile walk) - is a wonderfully vibrant and modern art gallery, with its links to the Camberwell School of Art nearby and a lively shop and cafe. It has a regularly changing series of exhibitions and events - and has been a showcase for contemporary British artists, including Tracey Emin and Michael Landers.

"Cosy apartment with good connections to central London"
This cosy apartment in a quiet residential street on the border between Camberwell and Dulwich is a recently refurbished extension of the owners' house. We were staying in London for a week to visit friends and this apartment was the perfect solution as it gave us much more space than the average hotel room at this price as well as the opportunity to do our own cooking, thus saving money on eating out. Free WiFi and TV meant that we could also spend the occasional rainy evening in with a take-away. Owners Vicky and Harry are very friendly and are happy to provide tips on how to explore the area and London more generally.
The flat has its own entrance and is laid out over the first and second floors. It has been lovingly furnished with top-quality furniture and appliances in kitchen and bathroom. The bedroom which is on the second floor has a comfortable bed and plenty of storage space. The owners had provided all basic necessities for cooking (excellent quality utensils as well as olive oil, salt & pepper, etc.) and cleaning. The eco touch to the flat (organic bed linen and towels and other environmentally friendly products) was a plus. The flat also contains a number of London guidebooks as well as a welcome booklet written by the owners containing tips on transport, eating (take-aways and a number of high-quality restaurants close by) and activities for the area.
Although the flat is not located close to a tube stop, trains from Denmark Hill station (5 minute walk away) got us to Victoria or London Bridge stations in 10-15 minutes and a number of busses also go to central London. The area has several small convenience shops as well as a massive Sainsburys if you need to stock up on food. King's College Hospital is also a five-minute away from the flat.

"So Conveniently Located!"
The location is great, close to bus stops and the train station. Our family lives only a few minutes walk away. There is a major super market 5 minutes away and a corner shop at the bottom of a hill. Wi-Fi was great as was the television. Well appointed kitchen. Nice neighborhood.

"Perfect for Us"
Our daughter and her husband live nearby. With the arrival of our first grandchild, we came to help out but could not find suitable hotel accommodations in the immediate area. We located Vicki's place and it was perfect for us, with much more room and better quality accommodations at a lower price than a hotel.
The flat has been totally renovated with modern appliances and amenities. The entrance leads you upstairs to a modern kitchen with all new dishwasher, oven, cooktop, fridge, clothes washer, dishes, glassware, cookware and utensils. In fact, just about everything is new. There is a flat screen TV in the living area along with comfortable furniture and a desk. Free WIFI is included.
A narrow stairway leads up to the bedroom, which has a skylight and a French balcony. The mattress is new and the linens and pillows are very high quality, all of which resulted in a comfortable sleeping environment.
Denmark Hill Road and a bus stop are close by as is the Denmark Hill train station. A large, modern grocery store is a short walk away.
Vicki was most gracious and accommodating with our short notice stay. We will certainly use her flat again when we come to visit our beautiful new granddaughter in the future.
