Denmark Hill is, as the name implies, situated on a hill – a hill which happens to offer fabulous views of the London skyline. It's a residential neighborhood so is relatively quiet, but still has enough going on to keep you from getting bored. While there is a diverse population here, residents have found a way to bring everyone together in a community that feels unique.

A haven for artists and musicians, Denmark Hill has some gritty spaces that have drawn in the creative set. This has in turn led to independent boutiques and experimental cafes popping up around town. There are also more suburban parts of the neighborhood that attract families. A large population of doctors and medical staff live here due to the nearby medical facilities and hospitals.

Properties in Denmark Hill are quite affordable and you'll have a good choice of homes ranging from small apartments to Victorian and Georgian style terraces.

Denmark Hill is bordered on the north by Camberwell, on the east by Peckham and East Dulwich, on the south by Herne Hill, and on the west by Brixton.
