About the area
Although only 12 miles southeast of Central London (30 minutes by train), Bexley boasts over 1,500 acres of open space and green parkland. Danson Park, believed to have been landscaped by the famous 'Capability Brown', is the setting for many Bexley's annual summer events. Historic attractions include Hall Place, a Jacobean mansion house featuring award-winning gardens, set beside the River Cray. Lesnes Abbey, built in the twelfth century by Richard de Lucy, Chief Justice to Henry II, is also located in the borough.
Up until the beginning of the XX century, Bexley was mainly open countryside. Today, it is one of the greenest London boroughs with lots of parks and open areas. Moreover, it also has all kinds of bars, restaurants, and cafes for people with different tastes.
For art lovers, there are lots of various theatres, galleries, and museums. For example, we recommend visiting the historic Danson House. It is full of amazing pieces of antique furniture and art.
Many people find this area suitable for long-time residence due to its calm and countrylike atmosphere.
