Bexleyheath is the strategic town centre in the heart of Bexley Borough. Bexleyheath is easily accessible from M25 & A2 (Black Prince Interchange).

Bexley offers you the best of town and country, only 30 minutes on the train to central London and a few minutes drive to Kent, the Garden of England.

Bexleyheath is a large, bustling town centre with a pedestrianised area in the centre of the town, bordered by the busy Broadway Shopping Centre and newer Broadway Square centre.

Here in Bexleyheath you will find everything you need - undercover shopping with all the High Street names you'd expect, a wealth of independent shops and businesses along a traditional High Street, a nine screen cinema, state of the art Bingo club, 28-lane bowling alley, restaurants from around the world and plenty of places to stop for refreshment both day and night.

The town is easy to get to by public transport with over 70 buses an hour passing through from southeast London and the Kent countryside. Bexleyheath and Barnehurst stations are both only a short bus ride away from the centre of town. There are over 2,500 car parking spaces with dedicated areas and car parks for disabled drivers.

An average of 170,000 people a week visit the town, enjoying the comfort of one of the cleanest town centres in the capital and the security of knowing that our 24 hour CCTV system is watching everyone, in what is one of the safest London Boroughs.

The Council's main offices, Magistrates Court and Metropolitan Police Divisional HQ are all within easy walking distance of the centre of Bexleyheath, marked by the new Morris Fountain on Broadway.
