Visit Sidcup Place

News Shopper:

Built in 1743, Sidcup Place was originally a stately home before transforming into college premises, a boarding school and council offices. It is now a charming restaurant.

Play tennis

News Shopper:

Next to Sidcup Place and a crazy-golf course, Sidcup tennis courts – with their cheap admission prices - are sure to serve up a fun and active day for all the family.

Quiet time in the library

News Shopper:

After being fully refurbished in 2005, the library (just seconds from Sidcup High Street) is the ideal place to relax after a busy day of shopping and indulge in a book.

Go to a rock bar

News Shopper:

If you fancy a livelier scene, The Iron Horse is Sidcup’s premier rock bar and venue. It is situated right next to the station and frequently features great live bands from the rock and metal scene.

Stroll through the gardens

News Shopper:

Sunny summer days are the perfect occasion to take a leisurely stroll through the picturesque gardens next to the tennis courts. The gardens are arranged beautifully and make for a perfect place to relax.

There's also a fine assortment of roundabouts to drive round. Depending on how many you visit and how many times you go round them, this can take up a whole day. Then as the sun goes down you can revel in the glory of the Sidcup illuminations as, gently flickering, each street light comes to life, bathing the car lined streets with their sodium glow. Wonderful.

The pavement outside Tesco Express in Station Road is very entertaining place to go too. You can watch the cars trying to reverse into the parking spaces outside and watch how irate and impatient the drivers waiting at the traffic lights get with them, and the horns hooting and the rows which sometimes follow. It's like an outdoor production of Eastenders. Take your kids, take the whole family. Great fun !

What a load of absolute ****. The junior journalist clearly doesn't live in this area, or maybe this is Georgina's first assignment for writing for some newspaper!!The first thing you should do when in Sidcup, is head to Sidcup station and catch the train into London!!
