Trains to West Dulwich in the London Borough of Southwark pull into the station approximately five miles south London Victoria. You'll see the open space of Belair Park as you exit the station - this is a particularly green part of south London, with the extensive Dulwich Park just up the road too. Built in 1863, the station was originally simply known as Dulwich until West was added in 1926. Today it whisks local commuters to Victoria in just 13 minutes.
The station is a short walk from the busy residential avenues of Rosendale Road, Park Hall Road and Croxted Road - at the junction of the latter two you'll find a villagey crossroads with an independent bookshop, organic butcher and local bakery. The Dulwich Picture Gallery, designed by Sir John Soane in 1817 and the first purpose-built public art gallery in the wrold - is a 10-minute walk north of the statin through Belair Park.
