Location

At London Square Bassetts House, you can experience the charming and relaxed pace of life of Orpington and the nearby countryside, in a market town that is a treasure trove for shopping, culture and eating out. Orpington is a highly sought after location by professional people who demand a quality lifestyle within easy reach of London.

Transport

Orpington is exceptionally well connected by both rail and road. Trains from Orpington Station can take you to London Bridge in 22 minutes or Charing Cross in 27 minutes. Nearby Sevenoaks is only a 9-minute journey away. By car, you can reach the M25 in 12 minutes, the Bluewater Shopping Centre in 24 minutes and Gatwick Airport in only 31 minutes - ideal if you travel internationally for business or leisure.

Lifestyle

Orpington is home to many quality independent shops as well as major stores. The Walnuts Shopping Centre near the High Street offers everything from jewellers and florists to Bella Italia and Marks & Spencer, plus a 7-screen Odeon cinema with immersive iSense technology.

The adjacent Walnuts Leisure Centre is home to two pools, a sauna and steam room, an 80-station gym, squash courts and more.

When it's time to explore the countryside, there are soothing walks and nature trails to follow at Darrick Woods and Common, winding through ancient woodland. The nearby villages of Locksbottom and Farnborough are particularly charming. There are also many places of historical interest nearby, including Down House - the home of Charles Dickens - and the Priory, surrounded by Victorian gardens in the heart of Orpington.

If you enjoy eating out, there are lots of excellent pubs and eateries to choose from. Highlights include Xian, an exceptional Chinese restaurant, plus Chapter One in the nearby town of Locksbottom, which offers modern European cuisine. Both are listed in the Michelin Guide.
