When we visit our family in Crystal Palace we always come to Dulwich Park. It is a great place to visit with our grandchildren. There are always people running, cycling or just out for a stroll and there is quite a large area for children...More

This magnificent park is one of the nicest outside central London. It is Grade II listed and has a magnificent collection of Rhododendrons, a boating lake, playgrounds, a bowling green, tennis courts, football pitches....The park cafe is very nice but rather expensive.

Great park with vast open green spaces, as well as a large boating lake and very pretty narrow ribbons of the lake around the edges of some parts of the park. Lots of ducks, geese and fish. Also lots of squirrels and parakeets. There is...More

A trap for anyone visiting this park- I should say, a Venus Fly Trap. This place is poor and doing a roaring trade with the yummy mummies and nannies of Dulwich, but that’s Dulwich Village all over-pretentious, pretty, but insubstantial. This cafe was very poor...More

Dropped by the cafe to get a coffee and a snack. The service we received was poor and the men's loo was blocked, which was pretty unpleasant. We left without ordering anything. The park itself is well worth a visit, but our negative experience in...More

Colicci Dulwich Park is a chaotic, over-priced establishment that serves mediocre food that really doesn’t warrant the deluded and deranged price tag attached to it. They’re quite obviously fleecing wealthy locals, charging £2 for a can of soft drink, for example, completely making their food...More
