Edward Alleyn, an actor and contemporary of Shakespeare, made a fortune as a theatrical entrepreneur which enabled him to buy the Manor of Dulwich. He had built a chapel, school and almshouses and dying childless in 1626 bequethed the manor to these establishments. The control held by the Estates Governors has enabled the village to remain largely unspoilt.

The best place to eat is the Pavilion Cafe in Dulwich Park. Picnic in the park or the grounds of the Gallery


Village 2 miles
Village & Woods 5 miles
Stout footwear recommended for longer walk
Dulwich Village walks are fairly standard but make a point of visiting St Barnabas Church and on the longer walk, Kingswood. It is quite a climb up Low Cross Wood Lane! [Village Route]
