Transport links into all parts of London could hardly be easier. Catford Bridge provides services to Cannon Street (in around 24 minutes) and Charing Cross (in around 22 minutes), both via London Bridge. There are also services from Catford up to Kings Cross St Pancras via Elephant and Castle and Blackfriars. For anyone needing the London Overground, Honor Oak Park station is within easy reach by cutting through Blythe Hill Fields and Forest Hill station is just up the road. Having all these options for stations makes commuting when train lines aren’t available a doddle!

Amenities can be found either in the center of Catford, Forest Hill, Honor Oak Park or Forest Hill. Including high street favorites, independent coffee shops and several highly-rated restaurants and gastro pubs. A couple of places of note for an evening out include The Blythe Hill Tavern, a CAMRA-award winning pub, and the Catford Constitutional Club, a hip gastro pub. Rise Café at the bottom of Blythe Hill Fields is a great place for a spot of breakfast or Sunday brunch.

There is also a very good selection of Outstanding and Good primary schools nearby including Rathfern, Dalmain, Stillness, St William of York, and independent through school, St Dunstan’s College, is a short walk away.
