Have a look at neighbouring areas such as Crystal Palace, Annersley etc

Dulwich was/is VERY expensive.
All depends on your budget - are you going to rent or buy?
How far from D. is the furthest you are prepared to commute.

Have a look at Penge (2 stops from West Dulwich), Norwood junction etc. It depends which bit of Dulwich as there are a few different stations and it would depend which one you go into. Follow the trainline out.

But the whole of London is stupid expensive.

List of average asking prices for London properties by area:

Long time since I left London so can't comment on neighbouring areas (except to say, as everyone else does, how incredibly expensive London has become).

Depends indeed on which bit of Dulwich - Dulwich village is lovely but you'd need to be really minted. However, there are stations like South Bermondsey and Peckham Rye about 5 minutes away from East Dulwich & North Dulwich railway stations.

Although if you're going in from outside London, it's all going to seem ridiculously expensive, mostly because it is ridiculously expensive.
