As one of the larger of the 32 London Boroughs and located to the South East of the city centre, Bromley is approximately 9.5 miles from Charing Cross and has a population of around 300,000-350,000 people. At least one half of the borough is rural in nature and is marked as protected green belt land.
Formerly an important market town, the area underwent a huge population boom in the 20th century and was eventually incorporated into Greater London in 1965.
Bromley is a leafy borough with a wide range of leisure facilities and is considered an important location in London for the retail industry ranking fourth below the West End, Croydon and Kingston upon Thames. Another competitor in the retail sector is Bluewater Shopping Centre in Dartford. The town also has a popular market which has been run in the area since at least 1205.
Bromley has a well established rail and bus network with direct links into the city centre, and the surrounding area.
The town of Bromley has been the home of a number of famous people, including authors H. G. Wells and Enid Blyton, and numerous television and music celebrities. Charles Darwin also lived in the borough from 1842, for 40 years, until his death in 1882.
The original Crystal Palace also famously stood in the borough after being relocated here following the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park in 1851. The building remained a popular attract until it was destroyed in 1936 as a result of a fire.
The borough is home to Biggin Hill Airport. This airport began life as an important location for the military, with the Royal Flying Corps during World War I and later for the Royal Air Force in World War II, and was known as RAF Biggin Hill. It was vitally important in the Second World War effort as it was one of the main bases for fighter aircraft, which were integral in the protection of London and the South East from German Luftwaffe attack. Both Spitfires and Hurricanes were based here. In 1958, the RAF began to move away from using Biggin Hill as one of their bases and the airport began to prepare for relocation of aircraft and transport from nearby Croydon Airport. The RAF eventually moved all activity away from the airport in 1992 in favour of RAF Cranwell. Today the airport is used as a civilian airport, mainly for private aircraft and flying displays.
Although it is recognised that there is a squeeze on affordable housing availability across all of the London boroughs, the borough of Bromley has historically provided more options that some of its neighbours. Approximately 70% of homes in the borough are privately owned, meaning there are less options for investors but many options for families and young professionals, especially those commuting to other parts of the city. Plans have been put in place for development within Bromley to provide more new housing stock. Due to the rapid increase in population flocking to the city of London as part of the Industrial revolution, a large number of houses in Bromley are Victorian in nature, with some later art deco architectural feature also seen, most notably in the cinema in Beckenham. The borough saw another increase in house building in the 1930s in a more retro style. Houses built were smaller and made of more affordable materials than their Edwardian and Victoria predecessors. Unfortunately however many were destroyed in the Blitz of World War II. Average house prices in the London Borough of Bromley are around £550,000 at the time of writing.
