        To fully appreciate the quaintness of Dulwich Village it is best to do what I did and take a bus to the outskirts. There I was, on the top deck of the 196 from South Norwood, and fully appreciating the views. The view of the City of London from the top of Crown Point is truly breathtaking and the Victoriana of the buildings all around is, I feel, unrivalled in much of London. Inside the bus the ambience was also something else. Ah, the pungent aroma of someone smoking weed at the back of the bus and the spiky drumbeat-led poetic musings of the hip-hop poets emanating from a multitude of ipods get you in the right frame of mind for the calm sereneness of Dulwich Village.

        Helpfully, should you not think this behaviour was as enchanting as I did, the Mayor of London had an advertising billboard which read: "And I shall remember what it was like to be 14".

        Thank-you Mayor. That explains everything. Who says politicians aren't in touch with their electorate? Funny though I've never seen the Mayor on the top deck of the 196. Or the bottom deck.

        But I digress. To come to Dulwich Village from the hurly-burly of London life is to find an oasis within the grime and graffiti of the surrounding areas like Brixton. It is full of beautiful architecture, the signposts are from an era long gone, and it is just quiet.

        Silence is golden. Especially when it reeks of money!!!! You have to have a few pounds to live here.

        A detailed history of Dulwich Village can be found at wilkpedia.

        I have taken photos of the beautiful Victorian Half Moon Pub, Half Moon Lane at nearby Herne Hill. Above it is McKenzie's Boxercise Gym run by one of the ubiquitous McKenzie brothers. Not Duke, I think or the guy who run for Mayor but maybe Clinton.

        Other pictures includes the houses on the village high steet, Crown & Greyhound pub, Picture Galley and Dulwich College, founded in 1619!
