Living in Chislehurst
As part of the London Borough of Bromley, Chislehurst is a popular place for homeowners looking for a quiet home that’s still within easy distance of the capital. The suburb has had some rather famous residents over the years, including Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte, Sir Francis Walsingham and William Camden, Clarenceux King of Arms.
It’s easy to see why Chislehurst is one of London’s most beloved suburbs. There’s always plenty to see – from the lovely green spaces of Chislehurst and St Paul’s Cray Commons, to the Scadbury Nature Reserve, Derwent House and St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, the original burial place of Napoleon III and his son. The Chislehurst Caves are a well-known tourist attraction – these ancient caves were once used as an air raid shelter during World War II, and are even believed to be haunted! The caves have also been used as a live music venue, with Jimi Hendrix, the Who and the Rolling Stones all having played there.
For Chislehurst locals, there are also a variety of events throughout the year, including the Community Carnival in May, the fortnightly Farmers’ Markets and the Open Air cinema in July. For those who want to keep active, the development is close to the Sidcup Leisure Centre, the Chislehurst Lawn & Tennis Club and the Chislehurst Golf Club.
