About The Blackheath Standard

Named after the Royal Standard pub, this area lies to north of Blackheath village. The heart of Blackheath Standard focuses on Batley Park, a small green which features a cluster of independent shops including bakeries and a butcher, services, restaurants as well as the Blackheath Library.

A short history

The site where Batley Park stands today was known in the 18th century as Sheepgate Green. It stood beside the crossroads of what was then the main road between London and Dover. Around 1885, a local philanthropist named William Fox Batley had it refurbished, and it became known as Batley Green or Batley Park. The residential streets were largely developed in the Victorian and Edwardian years, following the arrival of the railway station at Westcombe Park.

Green spaces and going out

Blackheath Standard is just a five-minute walk from Vanbrugh Park which opens out into 180-plus acres of Greenwich Park, home to cycling, walking, jogging and running tracks. Meanwhile, the Blackheath Lawn Tennis club is the other side of the A2 and has 11 courts. The Royal Standard is one of south-east London’s most established pubs, it’s dog-friendly and has a large beer garden in the back. All the pubs, bars and restaurants in Greenwich Peninsula are to north including a multi-screen cinema and the O2.


Westcombe Park station is a short walk north from where you can catch trains to Cannon Street (20 mins) or London Bridge (15 mins).
