West Dulwich, London

West Dulwich is an area in southeast London, England, that straddles the London Borough of Lambeth and the London Borough of Southwark. Croxted Road and South Croxted Road mark the boundary between London Borough of Southwark on the east and London Borough of Lambeth to the west. The South London suburb dates back to the 17th century when the often flooded land known as Dulwich Common was acquired and drained by Edward Alleyn's estate. Best known for the respected Dulwich College, the Dulwich Estate is an affluent residential area which has a sleepier feel to it than that of neighbouring areas such as East Dulwich or West Norwood.
