In a recent edition of the TimeOut Magazine, I read about a lovely area in the south of London called Dulwich. I was even more excited to find out that there is an outdoor ”gallery” in Dulwich. This street art is a collection of murals based on traditional Baroque paintings from the Dulwich Picture Gallery. If you’ve been reading my blog then you’ll know that I loved checking out the street art in East London and the street art in Lisbon. We learnt a lot from the East London street art tour as this taught us to recognize the artwork of well known street artists. This meant we were able to easily identify artwork when walking around Dulwich.
The recent summer bank holiday weekend in August gave us the opportunity to spend a few hours in the south of London. We decided to start the walking trail from Peckham Rye station, followed the route south, covered part of Dulwich Village and finished northwards towards East Dulwich station. We unfortunately didn’t get to cover the whole route as we had afternoon plans. Check out this route on Google Maps for the street art locations: Dulwich street art locations
Today’s post shares some of the street art that we saw around the Dulwich area.
We had another fun day out discovering street art and experienced a part of London we’ve never been to before. The many shops, restaurants and cafés in East Dulwich/Dulwich Village also reminded me of the cosy and vibrant village type atmosphere of Parkhurst in Johannesburg, South Africa. If you’ve not been to Dulwich before, enjoy walking and are looking for an inexpensive day out I would highly recommend this street art walk 🙂
