"Scadbury Park Local Natural Reserve" Chislehurst by Claudilla

Chislehurst Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 19 photos

Ancient woodland, veteran trees and more

This beautiful park extends for more than 125 acres, and it's more than a park but a natural reserve host to a wide part of the local wildlife.
Situated on the way to Chislehurst, it's still in the London Borough of Bromley, therefore not far from London, and worth a daytrip. The site has archaeological significance due to a manor house and built in 1314 by John de Scathbury.
Scadbury Park is served by buses on routes 160 and 269. Route 160 (Eltham-New Eltham-Chislehurst- Sidcup) runs about every 15 minutes and 269 (Bromley North-Bickley-Chislehurst-Sidcup-Bexley-Bexleyheath) about 10-12 minutes. There is a bus stop in Perry Street, close to one of the Park entrances. More information on public transport is available on the Transport for London website. A car park is available from Old Perry Street, but it is very crowded on Sundays, therefore it is advisable to park off the main Street or nearby.. and start your walk there, sumptuos villas can be spotted !

A dog friendly walk

Dogs are welcome and they will enjoy the walk very much, it is recommended they should be on a lead at all times in order to avoid disappointing accidents with the wildlife or the grazing horses. Most of the dogs I encountered were trotting off the lead, and they seemed under control at all times.
Worth mentioning that once your finished your 3 miles walk, or perhaps a shorter one, you and your four legged friend can rest at the dog friendly pub Sydney Arms (Old Perry Street).

A parokeet

A parokeet is not such an unususal finding ineven in a few parks in central London.. adding an exotic touch to your walk.
