Located in the London Borough of Bexley, Sidcup is also known as the 'Gateway to Kent', offering easy-access to an array of Kentish historic houses, gardens, castles, and National Trust properties.
Sidcup itself has a thriving town centre offering a mix of high street stores, independent shops, a library, coffee shops, and several pubs. With a large number of supermarkets on the outskirts, Sidcup is the ideal location for enjoying your retirement. For even more shopping opportunities, a local bus service runs from Sidcup to the Bluewater shopping centre located in Greenhithe, Kent, which boasts 300 stores, 60 cafes and restaurants, and a 13-screen cinema.
The area also benefits from the London Freedom Pass which gives older passengers free travel on London’s public transport systems, perfect for a trip to the West End to watch a show, or for a browse on High Street Kensington. You even enjoy a day of culture at the Natural History Museum or Afternoon Tea at the Ritz.
