Eat

Franco Manca
 
Offering the best sourdough pizzas in town (we can vouch for this), Franco Manca's East Dulwich location is metres away from Sweaty Betty’s new store. Visit post shopping, we can guarantee you won’t regret it.
 
Toast ED
 
This buzzing East Dulwich bistro has become a local hero for its inventive modern cooking and natural wine selection. Open from breakfast to dinner, expect unusual flavours and a compact, well-designed menu at Toast ED.

East Dulwich Picture House
 
Converted from a beautiful Victorian building, East Dulwich Picture House shows a mixture of contemporary and arthouse films. All of which can be enjoyed with a glass of wine and freshly baked goods from the onsite café.
 
Horniman Museum and Gardens
 
The Horniman Museum is worth a visit for the 16 metres of beautiful gardens alone. However, with a huge natural history collection including a dinosaur exhibition, we can guarantee it will impress big and little kids alike. Head here on a Saturday for the local farmers market which sells fresh produce, flowers and street food. 
 
Dulwich Picture Gallery

 
The world’s first purpose built art gallery the Dulwich Picture Gallery houses a collection of over 600 paintings and contemporary exhibitions. Make sure to wonder around the beautiful gardens for a picnic and to admire the groundbreaking architecture.
 
Fresh Flower Company

Hi there, I am really excited about your shop opening locally, it is just what our community needs. I regularly buy Sweaty Betty gear and it will be lovely to have you on the doorstep. I wanted to introduce myself as I am a running coach and personal trainer based in Forest Hill. I offer running groups in Mayow and Sydenham Wells Parks as well as personal training at client's homes in ED. Most of my clients are female. I wondered if there would be any way of partnering with the store? On a basic level by you listing me on your blog or me becoming a running ambassador (I don’t know exactly what this entails though)? Perhaps I could offer a weekday morning women's running group starting from your shop for example? I know this is something many sports shops do with great success. Here is a link to my site so you can see what I do and if you'd like to meet me to talk further I'd love to pop down to the store. www.runwithelkie.co.uk Best wishes Elkie
