The Bromley Antiques Market takes place every Thursday and is one of London’s most established weekly markets. The market runs from 6am to 2pm and consists of dealers with the most wonderful collections of vintage and antique pieces. Shoppers searching for something specific should arrive as soon as the doors open to find the best deals, while those after a lunchtime wander will still find plenty of treasures.

Churchill Theatre

Since 1977, this theatre has been considered one of the South East’s leading live entertainment venues, welcoming over 200,000 customers through its doors every year. An eclectic programme includes musicals, drama, comedy, dance, family shows, one-night only events and world-class pantomime.

The Star & Garter

This Edwardian-style pub is also home to a bottle shop where you can click and collect beer, wine and spirits every day of the week. Inside you’ll find one of the most extensive beer selections in South London, but be aware they don’t serve food apart from the occasional packet of crisps, so head elsewhere for dinner.
