Shooters Hill Golf Club

Shooters Hill Golf Club

Such a well presented golf course with great views, you would never believe you were in London.

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.

Boathouse Cafe

Boathouse Cafe

Cafe and bar close to the river

ExCel Centre

ExCel Centre

There are exhibitions held here all the time - most recently ComicCon. It was also the venue for many of the events during the 2012 Olympics.

Run or Dye

Run or Dye

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.

The Red Lion

The Red Lion

Great pub, sourdough pizza and family friendly. Also makes a great cocktail and has a large and lovely garden.

Sunborn Yacht Hotel

Sunborn Yacht Hotel

A little known gem, the Sunborn is a fully functioning hotel held on a yacht next to the ExCel centre. You can go here just for the bar, as well as the half price buffet breakfast at the weekend too!

Susan Clark Interiors

Susan Clark Interiors

A lovely independent interiors shop, selling fab pieces of furniture, fabrics, small gifts and unique cards.

The Depot

The Depot

Finally we have a pub and it serves great food, any time of the day. The crowd is nice and the activities range from typical pub games to wine tastings, love it!

Emirates Air Line

Breathtaking views over east London.

Dynamix Health Club

The perfect place to go to relieve stress after work. It has an amazing free weights room and a cafe serving healthy juices and shakes made from a choice of protein brands.

The Larder

The Larder

Great Coffee and Cake - It has only just opened!

Gail's

Gail's

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.

Buenos Aires Café

Buenos Aires Café

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.
