Inspiring places: East Dulwich, London

A friend of mine recently moved to East Dulwich (SE22) situated only 15 minutes away from the London Bridge Station. It’s a lovely area, full of character and charm, typical for up and coming areas of South East London.

East Dulwich

Since it was my first time in the area, we did a bit of exploring last Saturday. We walked along Lordship Lane noticing numerous food and interior shops.

With regards to interiors, I was happy to see not only well-known names like Oliver Bonas, but also small, independent ones where you can buy one of pieces  (e.g. Mrs Robinson).

Since it was Saturday, we headed to the North Cross Road market, which, despite rainy weather, had a variety of stalls on show (mainly shabby chic interiors, reconditioned mirrors, coat hooks etc.).


Under number 41 there is ed (one of three eclectic stores under rigby&mac brand). Ed was created for people looking for quirky, eclectic interiors. Although a bit small, the shop is lovely. Teal Buddhas and distressed window mirror were my favourites.

The Bishop Lordship Lane

In the evening we went for a drink to The Bishop on Lordship Lane. I would highly recommend it for a super friendly atmosphere (dogs are welcome), and eclectic décor. The lights above the bar were remarkable.

Have you ever been to East Dulwich? Are there any places you would recommend visiting?

  1. Thank you for this post! I’m moving to Forest Hill, which is not that far away, in a bit less than a week, so these tips will be explored shortly =)
