Have tea at Brockwell Hall

Grade II* Listed Brockwell Hall has been Brockwell Park's cafe for more than a century, and still serves all comers from its spot on the summit of a hill, looking South East towards Dulwich and Sydenham.

The Hall was, we are told Brockwell Hall designed by architect D.R. Roper, and completed in 1813 as the home of glass maker John Blades, sitting at the centre of a grand park estate.

In 1888, the estate was acquired by London County Council from a subsequent owner, to open to the public as a park, and Brockwell Hall first opened as a Refreshment House in 1892.
