Latest reviews | Events in Penge | 10 Places to Stay

Penge is the perfect spot for visitors wishing to experience the excitement of the capital with a peaceful base to escape to at the end of the day. This pretty south-east suburb is a 15-minute train ride from central London, and it's ideally placed for trips to the ancient castles, idyllic villages and rolling landscapes of Kent. Guests are also close to the major shopping opportunities of Bromley, Croydon and Greenwich, whose historic riverside buildings are among London's finest tourist attractions. Penge, however, has its own sights. Here is one of the main entrances to the famous Crystal Palace Park, which contains the much-loved Dinosaur Park and the exceptional facilities of the National Sports Centre. Penge's past is apparent in some delightful old buildings. It has preserved many of its Victorian almshouses, now privately occupied, with the oldest, the dramatic Royal Watermen's Almshouses, dating back to the 1840s. Penge can also boast the oldest working police station in London, built in 1872. Notable former residents include poet Walter de la Mare, French artist Camille Pissarro, former prime minister Andrew Bonar Law, the Victorian plumbing expert Thomas Crapper, cookery writer Mrs Beeton (another Victorian), and The Rolling Stones' Bill Wyman
