Why move to Blackheath?

Located in London's south east, Blackheath retains a charming village feel, yet you won't find a more convenient spot for Canary Wharf, the City and City Airport. It's a lovely place to unwind at the weekend and has a little something for everyone: Ride a donkey in Greenwich Park, discover the history of time, or simply watch the world go by as you relax in one of the many bars or cafés. If you are after a little more excitement, a quick train ride will have you in central London in 11 minutes.

Some things to love about living in Blackheath

Watch a gig at the O2, voted Europe's best live music venue. Arrive early and dine at one of the O2's many restaurants.

Take the kids to Mudschute Farm, Europe's largest urban farm.

Heckle up-and-coming and big name comedians at the Greenwich Comedy Club.

Climb on board the Cutty Sark, beautifully restored following a major fire.

The London Marathon starts here every year. Get a good spot and watch in amazement as the frontrunners sprint past.

A little bit of history
Contrary to popular belief, the name 'Blackheath' has nothing to do with the Black Death. The name derives from the colour of the soil, which looked black next to the green fields by the Thames. The heath has played host to rebels, battles, highwayman and fairs, and was made public in 1871. In the late 17th Century the area developed into one of London's wealthiest suburbs, with substantial properties being built around Greenwich Park and the heath itself.

Need to know
The first game of golf ever played in the country was on the Heath which became the original home of the Royal Blackheath Golf Club, which is the oldest golf club in the country.

Greenwich is full of boutiques selling everything from artisan ice cream and children's clothes, to haberdashery, crafts and antiques. You'll find a farmers' market in the Blackheath car park every Sunday, and you can pick up handmade goods and delicious treats at Greenwich Market every weekend. If you prefer the convenience of having everything under one roof, you're just a 15 minute drive from the Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, and 20 minute drives from Bluewater.
