    The title hints at where this 3D Disney adaptation of the Rapunzel story is heading. Referring not just to our heroine’s hairdo but to her complex personal life, it nods at the breezy, flippant, tween-friendly tone the film adopts. Erstwhile popst...

    It’s all in the mind in Pixar’s latest, a delightful, frenetic, near-experimental animated film from the makers of 'Up' and 'Toy Story'. Pixar fans will be in seventh heaven with the film’s bold thinking—and kids will be straining to listen to ima...

    For the past few years, Disney has been reinventing its style along two lines: the conscientious princess play of ‘Tangled’ and ‘Frozen’ alongside the more modern sensibility of movies like ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ and now this one. ‘Big Hero 6’ has been ...

    Enough with the feminism. Disney has clearly had enough of these uppity princesses getting all empowered and messing with their fairytales. After ‘Frozen’, and ‘Into the Woods’, it’s back to the basics of being a princess in director Kenneth Brana...

    If you’ve been waiting for a superhero movie with the line, ‘Guys, we’re coming up on The Devil’s Anus’, we have very good news: Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is that movie. Irreverent, helter-skelter, more colourful than an Oompa Loompa’s cheese dr...

    It seems third time’s the opposite of lucky with animated franchises. Like ‘Toy Story’ and ‘Ice Age’ before it, the ‘Despicable’ series has made the short trip from lovably madcap to tedious in three films (not counting the actually-kind-of-terrif...

    If you have a problem with fart gags and scatological slapstick... why are you reading a review for a movie called ‘Captain Underpants’? Adapted from the hugely popular series of knockabout kids’ books by American author Dav Pilkey, this hectic ca...

    No, ‘Trolls’ is not a movie about the haters with terrible spelling who threaten people on the Internet. This musical kids’ animation is based on the plastic dolls with frizzy hair that were big in the ’90s. And against the odds, it’s funny and sn...

    While 'Finding Dory' is crammed with the kind of visual pleasures we’ve come to expect from Pixar, the story doesn’t always reach the heights of invention upon which the animation giant has built its reputation. The film lacks the psychological pr...

    The racing world is changing in the latest ‘Cars’ escapade from Pixar. A new generation of faster, more efficient motors has arrived on the scene and a dramatic crash leaves an ageing Lightning McQueen facing retirement. Unfortunately for parents ...

Really lovely open space for families, picnics and wandering. The cafe has a good selection of hot and cold food, snacks, drinks and ice creams. The play park is large and has play equipment for all ages as well as disabled children. You can hire pedalos on the lake and see a variety of different birds and ducks. They also have recumbent bikes for lazily pedaling round the park,

One of London's most well-kept parks, a perfect space for walkers, cyclists, families and 'yogging' (I think it's a silent J). The ice cream van man is an ever-present fixture by the Picture Gallery Gate, and a short walk away are Gail's and Romeo Jones cafés. Extremely dog friendly and a wonderful space with a mix of open fields, woodland, gardens and sports facilities.


I love this park. Love coming here every week to watch the seasons change. Noticeably quieter during school holidays when the coffee-cup clutching clucking Dulwich Yummy-Mummies have flown off to warmer climes or an exclusive piste with their progeny and staff. Popular with families, dog-walkers, personal trainers, learner cyclists. Huge amount of amenities: Bowling green, tennis courts, football pitches, cricket nets, outside gym equipment, Ranger's office and children's indoor groups, children's play-park and table tennis tables, boating lake, resident heron plus normal water fowl, café, horse-riding path, funky cycle hire, ornamental and wild-flower beds, seasonal outdoor events - cinema, Dulwich Festival plus strange super-sized worm-cast sculptures and last, but not least, truly beautiful trees with the best-fed squirrels in London.


I've spent years visiting this place, never get tired of it. Always feels like a treat to visit here....

Beautiful park, especially when all the miniature dog walkers coming from the Village stay at home!


Escape to a quieter pace. Bikes for hire, outdoor gym equipment or pottering about on the lake and the Picture Gallery with cafe just outside the gate. There is something for everyone and the view changes through the seasons


Wonderful open space with boats and bikes, and plenty of scenery and greenery to lounge in the sun or take a stroll.

An oasis of tranquility amongst the mayhem of South London, great for the soul.

A gorgeous park with a village feel, I was lucky enough to go on a sunny day when the tulips were out. A great place for a lovely stroll, picnic or day afternoon out with family if you're in the area.

Sprawling and green a lovely place for a picnic.

Attached to Dulwich woods (and actually Sydenham woods which are slightly better- Victorian follie and bluebells when the time is right) its the perfect place for a long old walk too. Pretty much takes you from the top of Peckham all the way to Forest Hill without having to see much road if you plan it right, a delight!
