The oldest records of Swanley 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, there were significant pockets of development in the 1960s and 70s. Demolished Victorian houses and establishments have transformed into a new modern town centre.

Some period properties remain, and there is a concentration 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 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 famous seaside town. In addition, Kent beaches are accessible by car via the M20 and M2 motorways.
