Dulwich possesses an important art collection at the world-renowned Dulwich Picture Gallery, London’s last remaining tollgate, a successful local football team, Dulwich Hamlet, several good historic pubs and a cinema (many of the early British silent movies were filmed in the area). There are a huge number of excellent schools, several busy shopping areas, and a wide range of housing - from the denser developments in East and West Dulwich, to the mid-century modern estates in South Dulwich, and the larger properties in North Dulwich and the Village. It also has a number of attractive parks, sports grounds, and a golf course - not forgetting one of the last remaining parts of the Great North Wood - visitors who look at the sweep of these woods along the top of Sydenham Hill find it hard to believe they are within five miles of Charing Cross.
