Bromley is the largest borough in London with a population of over 300,000. Bromley town itself is a thriving centre of retail, commerce and leisure, attracting visitors from across the borough. However, the town has one eye on the future and ambitious regeneration plans are in motion.
The Pavilion Leisure Centre has recently undergone a £5 million upgrade and offers visitors a pool, gym, studios and a children’s soft play centre. Bromley Golf Centre boasts a nine-hole course and a driving range, while Bromley Tennis Centre has indoor and outdoor courts. Bromley Palace Park and Civic Centre Grounds are perfect for a relaxing walk, with their ornamental gardens and lake. Bromley Museum is fittingly located in a historic medieval building called The Priory, and is the perfect place to visit if you want to chart the town’s interesting history. The Churchill Theatre is Bromley’s well-regarded theatre, and the library is housed in the same building. Plans are also underway to turn the Grade II listed town hall into a boutique four-star hotel, restaurant and wedding venue.
The town and its neighbouring areas offer a good variety of educational choices, including:
- St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School
- Burnt Ash Primary School
- Scotts Park Primary School
- Valley Primary School
- St Olave’s and St Saviour’s Grammar School
- Harris Academy Beckenham
- The Ravensbourne School
- Bromley High School
Bromley town itself has two train stations. Although a limited service to Grove Park runs from Bromley North, Bromley South station runs a popular service to London Victoria that takes just 16 minutes. The west of Bromley is served by Tramlink, with services between Beckenham Junction, Elmers End, Croydon and Wimbledon. Bus travel to and from Bromley town centre is frequent and wide reaching.
You get value for money and with all the regeneration happening around, the potential for growth is huge. Here’s a snapshot of average sale and rental prices:
