Blackheath Common

Spread over 250 acres of beautiful greenery, Blackheath Common is one of London’ most treasured nature locations. As a World Heritage site the ancient common dates back to the Middle Ages, and it offers great views of the city, as well as allowing you to take in the sights of Essex, Surrey and Kent too on a good day. Wild flowers still grow in the land and animals populate large corners of the Common.

The four ponds continue to be popular attractions and it is famously associated with Dick Turpin, who would rob the rich who were travelling through London on the way to the coast. It is also the starting point for London’s annual marathon and every November plays host to a large fireworks display.
