East Dulwich has been named one of the best places to live in the UK – the only south London neighbourhood to make the list.

A blogger named Muddy Stilettos has named the top 260 places to live in 2024 based on a range of factors such as culture, house prices, places to eat and shop amongst others.

Muddy Stilettos described the neighbourhood as “cool” but “not in a graffiti-scrawled, underground clubs and street food way, think more farmers markets, art galleries and notable restaurants.”

Some of the examples given of this are Goose Green Park, an “enviable” high street and a “splash” of street art.

The blogger also gave shout outs to some popular spots to eat in East Dulwich.

They said that locals love Our which is a co-working space, yoga studio and a Sri Lankan-inspired café.

For pizza, they recommend Yard Sale – in particular the garlic roasted aubergine.

A pub that Muddy Stilettos sees as a stand out in the area is The Palmerston, they say it “is always on point thanks to its cosy back room and dining area.”

The blogger also recognised the variety of independent shops in East Dulwich, such as Forest London, Rye Books and Celestial.

For things to do, Muddy Stilettos recommends people head to the Brockwell Lido where you can swim all year round in the grade II listed open-air pool, with a café and an art deco style.

They also suggest heading to the Horniman Museum, Dulwich Picture Gallery, Picture House Cinema and in May, the annual Dulwich Festival.

According to Muddy Stilettos, the average property price in the area is £786,042 with flats going for, on average £478,550 and semi-detached houses priced on average at a whopping £1,363,200.

The best-kept secret of East Dulwich, according to this blogger, is the fact that it is a “bougie” bit of London with “edgy street art”.

Another reason it was listed was the commute links.

While the neighbourhood lacks its own underground, overground or Thameslink station, it does have a station served by Southern Rail.

It is also close to Peckham Rye which can get you to Victoria, Dalston or Clapham Junction relatively quickly.
