"The only British prime minister ever to be assassinated is Spencer Perceval, who was shot in the lobby of the House of Commons in 1812. He is buried at St Luke's Church, Charlton."

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

What locals say about Shooters Hill

  1. We've lived in Shooters Hill for 11 years and it was the best decision since leaving Docklands for a professional family life. Shooters Hill is the Richmond of London South East. With Oxleas Woods & Meadows, Shooters Hill golf and tennis clubs, Eaglesfield Park, The Woodlands Farm Trust & Severndroog Castle, it's easy to forget your only 10 mins from Canary Wharf and the City of London just beyond. There's a wide choice of schools, lovely family friendly local church and two community pubs. Direct transport (486, 89 & 244 buses) is the only reason prices are still reasonable but if you are prepared to get to Woolwich Dockyard or Arsenal you can get trains into London or the DLR - and with Crossrail round the corner (2 stops to Canary Wharf and 2 more to Liverpool Street) that leg of your commute just got a whole lot better. Shooters Hill - The Country, in the City.

  2. I have lived in Shooters hill for the last 10 years. It is a very quiet and pleasant area. I like the woods which is near my house and the big Green attached to it, it's a great place to walk my dog and he loves it! In the snowy winter months the children use sledges to slide down the snowy steep Green. I have lived in this area the longest I have ever lived anywhere and hope to live here many more years.

About Shooters Hill

Shooter's Hill (or Shooters Hill) is a district in South East London within the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It borders the London Borough of Bexley. It lies north of Eltham and south of Woolwich. With a height of 423 feet, it is one of the highest points in London. Shooter's Hill also gives its name to the A road which passes through east to west and is part of the A207 road, the A2 road, and also Watling Street. This is not to be confused with another part of the former Watling Street known as Shoot-Up Hill, which forms part of the A5 in Kilburn in the north-west of the city. It reputedly takes its name from the practice of archery there during the Middle Ages, although the name is also commonly linked to its reputation as a haunt for highwaymen. Shooter's Hill is served by many Transport for London bus services connecting it with areas including Woolwich, Eltham, Greenwich, Bexleyheath, Thamesmead, Lewisham and Crystal Palace.The closest rail link to the area is Welling railway station.
