Welcome to Blackheath, a district of south-east London. It’s situated within the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the London Borough of Lewisham.

Historically, it also lies within the boundaries of Kent. There are many reasons to visit this area, perhaps most notably for an Afternoon Tea in Blackheath. Why not enjoy a cuppa with cake on your next trip here?

Blackheath was originally recorded as “Blachehedfeld” in 1166. This term, in Old English, meant “dark coloured heathland”. On many occasions during the 17th century, it became an assembly point for English Armies.

This includes in 1673 when Marshal Schomberg assembled the Blackheath Army to serve in the Third Anglo-Dutch War.

Blackheath is also where golf was first introduced to England. If you’d like to partake in the sport, why not visit the Royal Blackheath Golf Club? If, however, you prefer to keep things simple, there is always the option of stopping an Afternoon Tea Blackheath establishment.
