Eltham Area Guide, SE9

Moving to Eltham?

  • Eltham is located in south-east London in the council borough of Greenwich, but on the borders of Kent.
  • It offers reasonably quick transport into Charing Cross and Cannon Street, but isn’t on the London tube line.
  • The area has lovely affordable accommodation, but lacks decent pubs and restaurants.
  • The high street has the feel of an out-of-London high street, containing shops such as Next, Debenhams, Marks and Spencers and WHSmith, whilst Bluewater is only about 15 minutes away by car.
  • A major plus for the area, is the fact that it’s surrounded by large spaces of greenery and woodland. The Eltham Palace has beautiful gardens and itself is an Art Deco showpiece that was built in 1936.
  • Highlights and open spaces in the area include: Avery Hill Park, Sutcliffe Park, Oxleas Woods, Well Hall Pleasaunce and the Tarn.
  • Nearby redevelopment Kidbrooke Village will also offer fantastic leisure facilities
