Who lives in Bromley?
Despite being the largest London borough by area, Bromley is home to just 300,000 residents, making it the least densely populated of all boroughs because half of it is covered by green belt countryside, the largest area of green space in London. With over 400 shops, a pedestrianised high street and two train stations, the town of Bromley attracts a mix of students, young professionals, families and people who have retired from work and the different styles of architecture reflect these diverse profiles. Bromley South is full of mostly modern purpose-built flats, Sundridge Park is where some of the most expensive houses are found and large, detached 1920s properties characterise Bickley. Bromley Old Town, close to Bromley North station, has a mix of Victorian cottages and larger houses, the Shortlands area has Victorian, Edwardian and 1920s semis, while Bromley Common has a mix of two and three-bedroom houses. Meanwhile, Trinity Village on the site of derelict playing fields on the corner of Crown Lane and Bromley Common is a development of 800 new homes, of which 264 are affordable.
Young families from all over London are attracted to Bromley because of its quick and easy commute to central London and good schools. In fact, Bromley’s state schools are one of the town’s biggest attractions. Highfield (infants and juniors) in South Hill Road, and Valley in Beckenham Lane, both in Shortlands, are judged “outstanding” by Ofsted. Other primary schools which get good results and at least a “good” rating are St Mark’s CofE in Aylesbury Road, Raglan in Raglan Road, St Joseph’s RC in Plaistow Lane, Scotts Park in Orchard Road and Parish CofE in London Lane. Bromley’s two grammar schools in Orpington — St Olave’s and St Saviour’s for boys and Newstead Wood for girls — are both rated outstanding, but so too are local comprehensives Buller’s Wood (girls with co-ed sixth form) in Chiselhurst and Langley Park Girls and Langley Park Boys in Beckenham. Transport When it comes to commuting, Bromley has five railway stations — Bromley North, Sundridge Park and Shortlands, which are in Zone 4, and Bromley South and Bickley (Zone 5). Local buses serve Orpington, Lewisham and Croydon, while a night bus also connects Bromley with Charing Cross.
Bromley is said to be London’s greenest borough and is the only London borough with one of the 41 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty designated in England and Wales.
