A guide to living in Tulse Hill

A spirited yet quiet residential area of South London, Tulse Hill has a lot to offer its residents, not least a variety of appealing property at affordable London prices. Known for being green and leafy, the area is in close proximity to community hubs Brixton and West Norwood.

For local amenities Norwood Road is well equipped. With many shops and a supermarket, this area should cover everything you need. For any additional shopping requirements, Brixton is just a short journey away housing a plethora of quirky shops and a market.

“Terraced streets, similar to those so renowned in neighbouring Herne Hill, are jam-packed with desirable Victorian and 30’s properties at affordable prices”

In order to fully immerse oneself into the local culture, we would recommend visits to the Dulwich Picture Gallery and a little further up the road, the Horniman Museum and Gardens. The former is an impressive gallery with an extensive selection of European art, whilst the latter has a strong musical theme and some breathtaking views of the London skyline from the gardens.

Tulse Hill and the surrounding areas boast some interesting local architecture; particularly the grade II listed Holy Trinity Church, All Saints’ Church in Dulwich and the former St Cuthbert’s Presbyterian Church of England. These towering churches are worth a visit, if only to observe from the outside.

Clustered around the station, there is an assortment of large Victorian houses that are very popular with people moving to the area. Terraced streets, similar to those so renowned in neighbouring Herne Hill, are jam-packed with desirable Victorian and 30’s properties at affordable prices.

The South London Botanical Institute is an interesting prospect. Located on Norwood Road, the institute is dedicated to the study of plant life. With a stunning garden, impressive library and even a herbarium for dried herb enthusiasts (we’re sure there arre plenty!), they are always encouraging local residents to become members here.
