Sydenham Hill is a hill or ridge and a locality in South-East London and the name of a road which runs along the northern eastern part of the ridge and forms the boundary between the London Borough of Southwark and the London Borough of Lewisham. The highest part of the hill is also one of the highest points in London at 367 feet (112 m). The road connects the A205 road in the north-east at Forest Hill with the A212 road to the south-west at Crystal Palace. Sydenham Hill railway station, Sydenham Hill Wood nature reserve and Dulwich and Sydenham Hill Golf course are located to the west and within Southwark. As well as Southwark and Lewisham, The London Borough of Lambeth, the London Borough of Croydon and the London Borough of Bromley all have part of the hill in their jurisdiction.

The hill was once covered by the Great North Wood. In the 19th Century it was home to the spa and health resort of Sydenham Wells, and in 1854, the Crystal Palace was relocated from Hyde Park and re-erected on the south-western end of the ridge.
