Living somewhere that’s hidden from the tube map has its disadvantages, like people wondering how the hell they’re going to get to your epic drunk Twister night, but for a lot of South London, that’s actually a good thing. There are tons of pretty neighbourhoods and green spaces that the rest of London hasn’t cottoned onto, and they don’t come much nicer than Dulwich Picture Gallery. The cafe and terrace at this art gallery is a lovely place to relax outside with a drink and a plate of homemade shepherds pie or mushrooms on toast, and you’ll genuinely feel like you could be in the countryside. It’s brilliant for a low-key afternoon with your friends, or your friend’s screaming kids, and it makes a nice escape from the grind of central London.
