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.

Fantastic olive bread and a great place to pick up a sneaky afternoon snack!

Zerodegrees

Zerodegrees

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.

Luciano's

Such great service from this independent restaurant. The pizzas and the seafood are highly recommended!

Le Querce

Le Querce

The finest Italian restaurant I have ever been to, with a varied and fresh menu that caters for everyone from meat eaters to vegans and all in between without seeming to try! I book for anniversaries, birthdays, visits from friends - any excuse to attend the best restaurant I know of. It may not look particularly salubrious, but it is child-friendly by day and romantically candle-lit by night. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Royal Observatory Greenwich

Royal Observatory Greenwich

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.

Telegraph Hill Park

Telegraph Hill Park

The park with a view! Enjoy a picnic with a landscape of the most beautiful city line. #TelegraphHillPark

There's such a buzz around Goldsmiths University..12 minutes to Charing Cross, easy road connections to Essex and property that provides excellent value...

New Cross is as arty and cultural as Shoreditch and Soho, but with a strong South London identity...

About Lewisham

Lewisham is a district in south London, located in the London Borough of Lewisham. It is situated 6.2 miles (10.0 km) south-east of Charing Cross. Almost all of the SE13 postcode district, which is associated with Lewisham, is within the London Borough of Lewisham, except for the Coldbath Estate and part of the Orchard Estate along Lewisham Road, which are covered by the London Borough of Greenwich. Lewisham's High Street is particularly long and wide for a London suburb and the area at the north end of the High Street was pedestrianised in 1994. Lewisham is a major local transport hub, lying on the A20 road towards Dover and at the start of A21 to Hastings, with its own large bus station, railway station and the southern terminus of the Docklands Light Railway. London Underground lines run into the north of the borough at New Cross station and New Cross Gate station as part of the East London Line.
