Herne Hill

Herne Hill is a neighbourhood in the London Borough of Lambeth and the London Borough of Southwark in Greater London.

Herne Hill is home to Brockwell Park which houses the magnificent Brockwell Lido, an open air swimming pool that boasts many attractions such as hair braiding, body painting and yoga classes during the summer.

Situated in a park off Burbage Road, Herne Hill velodrome, built in 1891, is the only remaining cycle racing track in London. Unlike most modern, steeply-banked velodromes, it is a shallow concrete bowl.

Closest transport links are the Herne Hill and Tulse Hill Thameslink stations and the Brixton tube station.
