The food and wide range of beers brewed in house make this place so popular! They do scrumptious, fresh stonebaked pizzas and the views of Blackheath are great. A nice place for a drink and food.

Oxleas Wood Cafe and Severndroog Castle

Oxleas Wood Cafe and Severndroog Castle

Severndroog Castle tea rooms do super food and jolly posh teas in the considerately renovated folly albeit with sometimes random opening hours, check the website! Oxleas Wood Cafe is always open and always makes for a pleasant break with plenty of space for the kids to play and dogs to be run.

The best Argentinian steak restaurant ever, where the walls are covered in iconic photos taken by its owner. Definitely ask for an upstairs table overlooking Blackheath.

The observatory is a great place for all ages to visit. There are usually a number of exhibitions for all ages giving a history of time and space and the architecture is wonderful. During the evening you can see the green laser across the sky that shows the meridian line.

The most fun you can have with a pair of trainers, never mind the mad dashing through colour stations where you're attacked with sachets of dye. There's also a music festival of colour! Run or Dye takes place not only in London, but all around the country and world.

"In the grounds of Charlton House is what is thought to be the oldest Mulberry tree in Britain. It was planted by James I in 1608 in amongst a whole mulberry garden that was to be used in the production of silk. However, what he didn't realise is that they were the wrong type of mulberry used for breeding silkworms."

Woolwich is affordable, it has great transport links, fantastic people and the new General Gordon Place is extraordinary.

Sit back and take in the sites from south east London's modern penthouses....
