Horniman Museum and Gardens
This beautiful museum is in a large landscaped garden. It houses musical instruments (some of which you can play), an aquarium, and an array of natural history treasures, including a comical taxidermy walrus. My favourite is the merman/monkey fish, which was thought to be part monkey, part fish, but was later found to be made of a fish and papier-mâché. There are occasionally dance and musical events in the lovely 19th century conservatory by the cafe. Even if you can’t get a ticket to one of these, the conservatory is worth a visit anyway.
A great place for families. Beautiful gardens and outside activities plus free/ticketed exhibitions , aquarium, butterfly house and cafe
Wonderful little museum of natural history, culture and a small aquarium. Great views from the park. On Saturday there is a farmers market
Local museam. Lovely gardens, places to eat and lots for kids to do. Has a farmer's market every Sunday worth visiting. Google them for specific times it opens.
You can take the 312 bus from Portland Road to Horniman Museum. It's a great place for children and adults to explore and has lots of interactive displays.
“The closest you’ll get to an actual village in South London, Dulwich is full of adorable places to mooch and some serious house goals. You may not have thought to visit Dulwich before, but after a little wander, you’re bound to fall in love.”
“A fantastic artisan cinema with cafe. great to take the kids to watch movies and then for a meal on lordship lane”
“People travel from far away to come to this exclusive Indian restaurant. Not to be missed. Book an early or late table for off-peak discounts, normally 50% off main course.”
“Super local park with a good cafe and boats in the summer. Loads of space for running, walking, plus a great playground for children.”
