Lewisham Town Hall, Catford, SE6 4RU


LewishamThe Borough of Lewisham lies six miles to the south east of central London and enjoys good transportation links to and from the centre. Blackheath is Lewisham’s major centre and was once a fashionable suburb for wealthy city merchants between the 17th and 19th centuries. This wealth is still reflected in its attractive architecture, and large houses. Blackheath has fine restaurants, cosy pubs, stylish shops and an appealing village-like atmosphere. The village heath adjourns Greenwich Park and is a popular location for kite-flyers on a Sunday.

The Horniman Museum, located in Forest Hill, contains a Living Waters aquarium, 16-acre garden and a new eco-building, the Centre for Understanding the Environment. Other places of interest within the borough include the Albany fringe theatre, located in Deptford.
