Blackheath Area Guide

A unique spot that offers the best of both worlds, Blackheath is a bustling, vibrant community, which retains a sense of suburban tranquillity.

Lettings agent Blackheath

At Avon Property, we pride ourselves on offering a bespoke lettings service in Blackheath and the surrounding area. We cater only for landlords and tenants, enabling us to focus all our time and energy on finding the perfect tenants and sourcing dream properties for those hoping to rent in South East London.

Blackheath is an incredibly popular spot, and it’s not hard to see why. You may be familiar with images of the start of the London Marathon or Greenwich Park, or you may be looking for somewhere that offers all the amenities that come with city life at a slightly slower pace. In Blackheath, you really can enjoy the best of both worlds. You’re a hop, skip and a jump from Central London, but you’ve also got village life on your doorstep.

Living the life in Blackheath

Blackheath is well-connected, and this makes it a popular choice for commuters and families. The location is perfect for those looking to combine city slicking with active pursuits and outdoor living. Blackheath Common is the perfect spot to blow away the cobwebs, and nearby Greenwich Park is an ideal location to meet friends, work up a sweat or simply while away the hours and soak up the sunshine. In the heart of the village, there’s an impressive selection of cafes, bars, independent shops, salons, and grocery stores and cafe culture is a trend Blackheath residents have embraced.

Getting around

Blackheath is well served by local buses, and you can also catch trains into Central London from Blackheath Station. It takes around 25 minutes to get to London Victoria. The closest DLR station is Lewisham.

Blackheath for families

Families will love the open spaces and the seemingly never-ending run of events and festivals in the area. The London Marathon is a highlight every April and Blackheath is one of the best places to celebrate bonfire night. There is a farmer’s market every Sunday, and there’s a large population of young families with plenty of activities and clubs geared towards parents and children of all ages.
