Just three stops on the train from New Cross Gate, Forest Hill is home to the Horniman Museum and Gardens. This museum hold a fascinatingly diverse collection of artefacts and activities, and is set in grounds that have spectacular views across the city. 

With plenty of shops, cafes and even a weekly farmers' market, the area is a great place to spend a laid-back afternoon. It is also home to many pubs and a comedy club, so can be a great choice for a good night out too.
