Forest Hill - SE23

Forest Hill is bordered by Sydenham, Crystal Palace, Dulwich and Brockley and is a charming ‘up and coming' London village. The opening of the Forest Hill Railway Station in 1839 gave the first great boost to the development of the suburb. With the coming of the railway the area became a popular retreat for the wealthy, including the tea merchant, collector and Liberal politician Frederick Horniman MP. ‘High and healthy' was how Forest Hill was described in the 1930s. It is one of the highest hills in London with spectacular views towards central London and the North Downs.
