I went to the branch today as a walk-in client. I waited only two minutes and was able to help myself to water. I spoke with a friendly employee who had a similar humour and so our conversation was nice and informative. She was very clear with information and was able to answer questions that I had.

Local Chambers of Commerce for SE27 0HZ. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Anerley Town Hall & Business Centre

Anerley Road, London SE20 8BD, UK – 020 8676 5666

It is a beautiful and well-maintained historic building. The staff are friendly and helpful. I am running my morning yoga class there on every Wednesday. The main hall with the big window, high-ceiling and wooden floor is perfect environment for the mindfulness movement practice.

Council services and library are no longer at this building. Anerley Town Hall is located opposite Anerley National Rail station with links to London and Croydon and has a good bus service from Bromley, Croydon, Norwood and Crystal Palace. It is a locally listed Victorian building with character and charm. Its location and facilities make it an ideal venue for wedding receptions, parties, dances, clubs, meetings and conferences.

This link works well. If you have fly tipping, litter issues etc you can either click and enter your local authority or find it on an interactive map. The services just drop down for you.

Dental Surgeries

Streatham Dental Care

Dental Surgery, 11 Becmead Ave, London SW16 1UN, UK – 020 8769 1920

Very happy to have treatment at that surgery. Professional service at reasonable cost. Friendly and helpful dentists, taking special care of any dental problem. Recommended to whole families with children.

Friendly and helpful staff. Might like to see more availability in pre-booked appointments.

Infinity Dental Care

Streatham Hill Healthcare Centre, 41A-C Streatham Hill, London SW2 4TP, UK – 020 3049 5959

I strongly recommend Infinity Dental Care service. They are very professional especially in the emergency situation. I lost my front plate unexpectedly. I tried to make emergency appointment with many dental care in London. My problem was solved by Infinity Dental Care Team within 24 hours (unbelievable!). It was also a nice surprise to me as the new plate is much better than the previous one. Infinity Dental Care team is friendly and will always help you. They deliver outstanding service! Thank you. Marcin Cendrzak

Just had a cleaning here. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the hygienist did an excellent job. Their care was up to my very American dental standards. Highly recommend this place for anyone needing a cleaning.

Pearl Dental

14 Streatham High Rd, London SW16 1DB, UK – 020 8769 8318

The whole team were great, so friendly and put me at ease. I phoned up in the morning needing an emergency appointment as the night before I had chipped off half of both my front teeth. Ayish and Stella made time for me so that I could get it sorted straight away and did such an amazing job. Thank you!

A consistently warm reception upstairs, and very friendly and gentle care from Ayish and Stella downstairs. I have total confidence in their skills and advice, and know that they only recommend the treatment that I need. Couldn't ask for more from my dentist.

The Greyswood Practice

66 Eastwood St, London SW16 6PX, UK – 020 8769 0845

This is the best practice I’ve ever been registered at. Once you have an appointment (which can be a bit of hassle as it’s phone only from 8am for same day bookings - with most gone by 8.15) - all of the staff are friendly and helpful. They have had a fair bit of rotation of GPs and Locums the last year, but it’s settled down again now. Appointments run pretty much on time and they are very accommodating. - especially good with children.

Ghufoor Dr Zahid

Streatham Park Surgery/91 Mitcham La, London SW16 6LY, UK – 020 8835 0077

The service provided by this surgery is 100% nothing is to much trouble and a visit will always be made if required.

Elm Lodge Surgery

2 Burbage Rd, Herne Hill, London SE24 9HJ, UK – 020 7274 6138

Haven't been to the practice yet but not a great experience so far as I arrived at 8.00 pm to register and the surgery closes at 6.30, not 9pm as Google mentions... Opening times are wrong!!

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

The Parish Church of Saint Philip Norbury

20 Beech Rd, London SW16 4NW, UK – 020 8764 6524

The choir in this church is simply divine. It's an amazing place to go if you need to reset for the beginning of the week. The sermon is short and straight to the point. Visited there for Xmas eve service but I'm going to make it a weekly thing just for the soothing hymns.

Libera - the best Choir in the world

Lovely guy and took our old TV without any problems. Idiot below obviously didn’t check the website about the wood.

Lambeth Household Recycling Centre

41 Beeton Way, West Norwood, London SE27 9BD, UK – 020 7926 9000

Friendly and helpful staff. Recycling only no general waste

Emmaus Lambeth

9 Knight's Hill, West Norwood, London SE27 0JD, UK – 020 8761 4276

Emmaus Lambeth is a treasure trove of pre-loved and restored furniture. I bought a stylish, vintage 1960's sideboard from Emmaus - and it was a bargain at £160. Would highly recommend popping in to see what they have in stock.

Excellent for cheap furniture, often with a bit of character. I kitted out an unfurnished flat using emmaus. Upstairs they sell tableware and linen, cushions, and other household wares, also good when starting out.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around West Norwood

Pizza Express

34-36 Streatham High Rd, London SW16 1DB, UK – 020 8769 0202

Lunch here with family. Pizzas and pasta. Nice. The 1 girl on was very efficent but busy. Good place to bring kida

Amazing customer service, so happy to go and have a good pizza!!


157 Lordship Ln, East Dulwich, London SE22 8HX, UK – 020 8299 9598

Great pub/restaurant. Lovely atmosphere and the food is amazing. Been here quite a few times now and never fails to please. Staff are very friendly too.

Went for dinner a couple of weekends ago. It was a Saturday night and very bus. Lovely food, great choices available on the menu. Staff were helpful and attentive. Unfortunately I was unable to finish my main as it was enormous!

Nando's Streatham

6-7 Streatham High Rd, London SW16 1EX, UK – 020 8769 0951

Best Nando’s I’ve been to and that’s despite sometimes things going wrong. 1) Food here is very good quality and is consistently better than my local Nando’s. 2) When trying to place a telephone order on 2 occasions I could never get through, this happened today and they told me DND was accidentally selected on their phone, an inconvenience but nothing major. They dealt with it in a very professional manor I received a good will gesture after asking and they were extremely polite. I highly recommend this branch of Nando’s for their caring nature about your custom and great quality food.

I love nandos anyway, this restaurant is clean and ALWAYS busy! Which says a lot. I always order for collection on weekends as you'll be waiting a while for seats. Staff not so friendly but extremely efficient.

Nursery and Preschools


St Stephens Church, College Rd, London, Dulwich SE21 7HN, UK – 020 8766 0091

Dulwich Montessori is a fantastic nursery and I would thoroughly recommend it. The staff are all exceptional . My daughter would daily come home speaking highly of each of her teachers. She gained so much confidences whilst at the nursery. My daughter really enjoys structure and the Montessori teachings really helped her to do so well while at the nursery. As a parent I always loved reading her blue book to find out how her day had been. She has now left the nursery but still loves to come back and visit. I work locally and have recommend a number of parents in the local area, who have also sent their children there and are also impressed.

Having put two children through Dulwich Montessori a fews back, who are now thriving at primary school, I am back again with my third who I know will have an equally enriching Montessori experience as her sisters. The staff here are phenomenal.

Penge Community Pre-school

Anerley Methodist Church, London SE20 8QA, UK – 020 8289 6771

We love Penge Preschool and so do our kids. The staff are great at entertaining and taking care of the mass of different kids. The Hall is nice and has an out door space. They have lots of good equipment and are always making a fun day for all.

Archangels Montessori Nursery

23 Genoa Rd, London SE20 8ES, UK – 020 8659 9009

Best nursery ever! They looked after my son so great! And they teached him perfect so he was ready to start his school on high level! Plus they are very flexible with the time you can drop or pick up your child!! The staff is so nice and friendly always ready to help! They are just a great a child care!

Primary and Secondary Schools

Dunraven School

94/98 Leigham Ct Rd, London SW16 2QB, UK – 020 8677 2431

Miss West is a sarcastic witch who does not care how parents feel. Probably because she doesn't have a maternal bone in her body. I can think of many others that deserve the position she has other than her. However Mr Boyle is amazing and in my opinion has the children's best interests at heart.

Ok Mr Cadoux is rude sarcastic he has confused me massively

Woodmansterne School

Stockport Road, London Area, London SW16 5XE, UK – 020 8764 1825

This school was the best, I was a student and I loved it and I still do. It was a nice and amazing experience, I enjoyed it from my first until my last day. Even though I left I still remember this place as my home and family. It was the best place ever I couldn't imagine going any where else it was my life and I will still remember this school until I go. I left 7-8 months ago and I still remember how this place was the laughter, fun and the teachers were amazing, they looked after you and cared for you like their children, they taught me right from wrong I learned so much. Even though they have changed it I still remember what it looked like. So if you need to send your kid to a school this is the one, they have many awards and achievements like oxford outstanding. This school is beyond all others and I couldn't spend my childhood some place else.

Amazing school 😉

Kingswood Primary School Upper Site

188 Gipsy Rd, West Norwood, London SE27 9RD, UK – 020 8670 3576

My daughter attends this school, she is currently in year 6. I chose to take her to a school that would help her succeed well. My daughter went to learn, she has never had a problem with the rules and regulations. If a parent does not want their child to go to a school with rules then i suggest you look somewhere else, I am sure there are plenty of "adequate" schools around.

Good school good location

Public & Preparatory Schools

James Allen's Girls' School

144 E Dulwich Grove, London SE22 8TE, UK – 020 8693 1181

I failed the exam but I rate this school 5 stars because my sister goes to this school and I love this school forever. I wish I could come here. I will always think.of myslef as a JAGS girl. When I was 7 I told everyone I would go to JAGS and that JAGS is the best secondary school in my eyes. Now I am not going to JAGS I am going to a different private school...

Very warm and friendly. Good results and nice kids.

Oakfield Preparatory School

126-128 Thurlow Park Rd, London SE21 8HP, UK – 020 8670 4206

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to all 400 students of Oakfield Preparatory School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff, who helped me move the heavy dome into the hall and also brought me a mug of tea. The day was well organised with all groups arriving on time. I was even treated to lunch. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, learning about the Moon, travelling through the Solar System and even discovering Natural Selection with Charles Darwin. Thank you Oakfield Preparatory School for a very pleasant visit.

Excellent school. I have visited several times and always been very impressed. Great facilities, high standards and friendly atmosphere too.

Streatham & Clapham High School

42 Abbotswood Rd, London SW16 1AW, UK – 020 8677 8400

Well run independent school with lovely atmosphere. Good facilities and its accessible as well. Not too close to train/tube links but bus runs close by.

My sister went here and she always said it was fantastic. My girlfriend went here too and it is probably the best girls school in South West London.
