West Wickham is a lovely area of London and still relatively unknown to tourists. Guests have described it as 'what they expect' of a traditional English town. It's peaceful, the supermarkets and shops are nice and there are plenty of cafe's, restaurants, pubs and parks. Most people say they 'took a chance' coming to an unknown town but all have liked it and have been pleasantly surprised. A few guests even decided to move to the UK and at least 3 separate guests have ended up living in our area.
We are on the doorstep of Kent 'the garden of England' with its many stately homes, castles and pretty towns and villages so if you have a car you will be able to visit lots of interesting places in the countryside.
Surrey is also close, and you can get to the south coast seaside towns like Brighton in about an hour.
West Wickham train station is 6 mins walk away. There are usually 3-4 trains an hour into central London. Trains go to London Bridge, Waterloo East and Charing Cross in 35 - 45 minutes. We are London zone 5. The last train home is around midnight but if you want to stay in London late into the night you can get a train to East Croydon all night long (15 mins journey) and then the N119 night bus (15 mins).
The nearest large town is Bromley which is at most 10 mins by car. We have bus stops near our house. East Croydon is also a short bus ride away and has a very large important station from where you can get a train to Gatwick Airport and the South Coast seaside resorts.
There are fast trains (15mins) to all London stations from nearby Bromley South which is 8 mins on the bus.
Opposite our house there is a park with large area of grass, football pitches and swings, and there is plenty of woodland and nature nearby. Not far away there are golf courses, swimming pool, gym, library and Gambado children's play centre should you get tired of visiting London.
Please report any damage, and remember that people live nearby, so no parties or gatherings with people other than those booked! Important to remember is to be quiet on the drive when coming in late at night, not to rev engines early morning or late at night and not to talk loudly on drive (even on phone) or pavement at night or early morning.
