Tulse Hill has an above average violent crime rate and an average property crime rate for London.


Tulse Hill is an extremely quiet area in the borough of Lambeth. It is popular among families due to its good schools and tightknit community feel – this is a pleasant place to live and everyone seems to know everyone else. There is a relaxed feel within the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city. This might be the reason that officials say Tulse Hill is the healthiest part of London.

You'll find a good mix of houses and apartments, including many beautiful Victorian style terraces, semi-detached, and detached properties. There are also plenty of affordable rentals here.

A lot of residents who live here are highly educated and that is reflected in the schooling options for kids. It also means that there are a lot of white collar workers here and many of them are over the age of 30. They are people with established jobs and families. Still, it is a melting pot of different cultures, having a low percentage of British-born residents.

There are a few restaurants and cafe's along the neighborhood's borders, and you'll find basics like a pharmacy and news agent, but for better shopping and dining options you'll need to head to adjacent areas.

Tulse Hill is bordered on the north by Herne Hill, on the east by Dulwich, on the south by West Dulwich, and on the west by Streatham and Brixton.
