Your guide to moving to Welling

Why Welling is a good place to live

Nestled in the bustling suburb of South East London, Welling is a delightful place to call home. Its favourable position makes for an easy commute, with many transport links to Central London, while simultaneously offering a respite from the city’s fast-paced life. Welling strikes an ideal balance of modern conveniences and historical charm. On a long summer evening, there's nothing like taking a leisurely stroll in Danson Park, or savouring a good book at Welling Library. From everyday amenities, such as shops and healthcare facilities, to recreational activities like golf, there's plenty to enjoy when living in Welling.

What's Welling famous for?

Welling is famous for two key attractions: the prominent Russian Gun and St Mary the Virgin Church. The Russian Gun, located at Welling Corner, is a carronade from the Crimean War, symbolising Welling's historical links with the Royal Arsenal. St Mary the Virgin Church, on the other hand, houses an impressive collection of 20th-century liturgical art.

Things to do in Welling

Welling overflows with destinations that are worth an afternoon visit. Fancy tea with a view? Head to the Severndroog Castle tearooms for a selection of dainty teas and baked treats. For a breath of fresh air, perhaps a packed lunch in Danson Park followed by a gentle boat ride on the lake. If competitive sports are more your thing, a round of golf at Bexleyheath Golf Club might be on the cards.
