Area Guide: Swanley is around 15 miles southeast of central London and in the Sevenoaks District of Kent. Swanley neighbours with St Mary Cray BR5 and St Paul’s Cray and the larger towns of Bromley, Chislehurst, Bexleyheath, Sidcup, and Orpington are also nearby.

The oldest records of the area reach back to 1066 when Swanley consisted of a few farms surrounded by woodlands. Swanley grew slowly until the arrival of the railway in 1861 when this charming village saw population growth and industrialisation.

Architecturally, many build eras are represented with larger pockets of development in the 1960s and 70s. Many Victorian houses and establishments were demolished and transformed into a new modern town centre.

Some period properties remain and there is a concentration of them in Swanley Village. This lovely town has properties ranging from one-bedroom flats to substantial detached houses. Swanley is an attractive proposition for first time buyers, families, and commuters.

Swanley Park is 60 acres of parkland that encompasses play areas, a café, a paddling pool and a boating lake. Residents can also enjoy Swanley Market with its variety of stalls and goods that range from fresh produce to clothing and accessories. It takes place every Wednesday in the town centre and draws many locals as well as visitors.

Swanley is seen as a quiet location to live whilst its position on the outskirts of South East London makes it convenient for city workers. Residents also enjoy being within relatively easy distance of the Kent coast. Whitstable is around 46 miles away and there are regular train services to this popular seaside town. It can also be reached by car via the M20 and M2 motorways.

Swanley railway station is served by trains with services to London Victoria, London Blackfriars, Sevenoaks, Canterbury West and Ashford International. Swanley is also served by various bus links and has easy access to the M25.
