Blackheath is truly unique. Its village atmosphere and the wide open spaces of the heath so close to central London make it a very special place. Space to breathe and a thriving community spirit make us proud to call it home.
Blackheath is also home to a fantastic range of shops, bars and eateries, all within walking distance of The Clarendon.
With the heath at its centre Blackheath has a place for enjoying the outdoors – OnBlackheath Music Festival and The Circus are seasonal favourites, and the fireworks display on bonfire night is really something to see.
The Village also has many fine architectural examples and The Clarendon is not the only Georgian building here. There are many beautiful Georgian and Victorian houses, including Michael Searles’ crescent The Paragon – and Sir William Chambers Pagoda, built in 1760, and past home to the Prince Regent.
Many other Royals have also made their home here in Blackheath over the centuries, the Tudors build Greenwich Palace and Stuarts Queen’s House, and Eltham Palace is also close by.
Did you know that the heath directly in front of The Clarendon, Blackheath Village is one of the largest areas of common land in Greater London with over 200 acres? On the Greenwich side you will find the Long Pond (also known as Folly Pond), close to the main entrance of Greenwich Park, and on the Lewisham side there are three ponds, with Hare and Billet pond considered to be the most natural and the best wildlife habitat.
Come and stay at The Clarendon, in The Heart of The Village – and get some fresh air.
