Here is a brief overview of Hither Green with area information for you, but nothing beats actually coming to visit.

Our area guide gives you a quick overview of the location; from its properties, public parks, local schools, council tax, public transport links to shopping and going out and maybe even an urban myth or two.

Supposedly a former a hamlet called Romborough although its suggested it was wiped out in the Black Death. The name given to the area since was due to is being closer to Lewisham than Further Green which is located near Verdant Lane.

ARCHITECTURE & PROPERTY

Having been largely populated following the arrival of the train line in the late 19th and early 20th century, one thing you’ll quickly notice about Hither Green is the abundance of classic Victorian & Edwardian style property. Some of the most impressive architecture can be found around the highly desired area of Manor Park – a short stroll from our office on Staplehurst Road.

Another selection of property that is very well known is the ‘Corbett Estate’; an area that stretches between Hither Green and Catford and is made up of single and double front houses. Built by a former Scottish MP, Archibald Corbett, the majority of the roads were given Scottish names and due to Archibald’s religious background, he made the area a ‘pub-free’ zone. This, slightly unfortunate fact for some residents, still remains today.

EATING & DRINKING

If you like a drink after work or maybe a summer afternoon spent sipping on a cold beer or glass of wine, the Station Hotel or Park Fever on Staplehurst Road are the places to be. The Station Hotel also offers some fantastic food and a pub quiz on a Thursday night which is always a good laugh. Park Fever provides a selection of craft beers and Ales whilst also selling some delicious chocolate!

For your morning coffee or spot of breakfast I’d suggest heading to You Don’t Bring Me Flowers (don’t be fooled by the name, the coffee and cakes are quite something!), Arloe & Mo or Café of Good Hope. All as good as each other and some even host pop up restaurants in the evening.

PARKS & COMMONS

Outdoor space is generally a must for families and being such a family dominant area, it’s no wonder Hither Green has some beautiful greenery. Manor Park, Manor House Gardens and Mountsfield Park all offer amazing outdoor space and even host summer festivals, outdoor cinemas (when it’s not raining) and the odd farmers market on a Sunday.

FAMOUS RESIDENTS

Hither Green has been home to a number of famous faces including fashion designer Alexander McQueen, actor Jude Law and comedian Rob Beckett.
