The local area guide to living in Blackheath

Blackheath is a suburb of South East London, considered to be a part of the London Borough of Lewisham, on the border with the Borough of Greenwich. It is a very popular place to live for commuters - more affordable than the inner city, with excellent transport links towards the centre and within easy reach of the countryside. It has plenty of wide open spaces, whilst still retaining the exciting and fashionable feel of the capital.

It is famous for containing an enormous expanse of common land, which has often been used by the military for exercises and parades throughout British history. It is the site of plenty of festivals and parties, and is especially famous for its firework displays on special occasions.

Information about the local residents

According to the 2011 census, just over 14,000 people live in Blackheath at a density of 60.7 people per hectare. Compared to the rest of London, and even the Borough of Lewisham, that's very low - giving Blackheath a relatively rural feel, despite its proximity to the city. This figure is naturally influenced by the large area of common land.

Unemployment is fairly low at 5.5%, no doubt influenced by the easy commute into London, and the population of Blackheath's general level of education is high. Just over 32% of residents work in a professional occupation, and around 20% work in an associate professional or technical occupation.

Nearby schools

Blackheath's location means that there is no shortage of schools and this makes it an attractive place to live for families. Within Blackheath itself there are 10 primary schools and 4 secondary schools, complimented by a large number of schools in the surrounding area and, of course, in London. Parents have a lot of choice when it comes to the school's faith and curriculum.

Of particular popularity are Lewisham LEA, Greenwich LEA, St Matthew's Academy and Blackheath High School - each with their own strengths and merits.

Getting around

While Blackheath does not have its own underground service, it has excellent rail links into the city. The main railway station is very central and offers a direct service to London Charing Cross, which takes just 20 minutes. There are also good links to Gillingham, and from there to the county of Kent as a whole.

Bus services are also good, as you'd expect for London, and run throughout the local towns and villages into central London regularly. For international travellers the closest airport is London City Airport, although realistically the best airports within easy reach are London Heathrow and London Gatwick - both an easy drive at 20-30 miles away.

Local shops

Blackheath has an excellent shopping district known as 'the Village'. The high street is full of fashionable shops, independent stores, classy restaurants and cosy pubs. It's popular with not just residents, but visitors from nearby towns and boroughs too. There are plenty of high street brands as well as quirky, unique boutiques.

Naturally, those with a strong thirst for shopping who don't find the Village quite enough can hop on a train to Charing Cross and find everything they could possibly need in Central London.
