Bromley is a large suburban district of south east London, England, and the administrative headquarters of the London Borough of Bromley. It was historically a market town, and prior to 1965 was in the county of Kent and formed the administrative centre of the Municipal Borough of Bromley. Its location on a coaching route and the opening of a railway station in 1858 were key to its development and the economic history of Bromley is underpinned by a shift from an agrarian village to commercial and retail hub. As part of the suburban growth of London in the 20th century, Bromley significantly increased in population and has formed part of Greater London since 1965. It has developed into one of a handful of regionally significant commercial and retail districts outside central London. It is located 9.3 miles (15 km) south east of Charing Cross and is one of the major metropolitan centres identified in the London Plan.
Bickley is an affluent residential area and electoral ward in the London Borough of Bromley, England. It is a suburban development situated 10.4 miles (16.7 km) south east of Charing Cross. Well known for its large and expensive houses, Bickley boasts being one of the richest areas within London. It is part of the Bromley and Chislehurst Parliament constituency. Although technically in London, it is regarded by locals and Londoners alike as in the county of Kent.
Bickley lies between Bromley Town to the west, Chislehurst to the north-east and Petts Wood to the south-east, and Sundridge Park to the north. Bickley railway station has regular trains to London Victoria and Kentish Town station via London Blackfriars. However the only local shops are at the junction of The Fairway and Southborough Lane, and at Widmore Green. A medium sized Tesco has recently opened. Many residents also use the nearby Chislehurst railway station which was originally named Chislehurst and Bickley Park, Petts Wood railway station, and Elmstead Woods railway station, as these have services directly into London Bridge station and London Charing Cross.
Shortlands is a ward of the London Borough of Bromley, located less than a mile from Bromley town centre. Historically, Shortlands was known as Clay Hill. It became known as Shortlands around 1800, after the fields which, at this point of the Ravensbourne river, ran at right angles up the slopes on either side. Suburban development began in 1863 with the sale of the Shortands House estate, making full advantage of the railway station opened in May 1858.
The village has good transport links to central London, mainly to London Blackfriars and London Victoria from Shortlands railway station.
Shortlands is most famous for Enid Blyton having lived there in the later stages of her life. Other famous residents have included the novelist Mrs Craik, for whom Norman Shaw built a house on Shortlands Road, and the electrical engineer Alexander Muirhead, credited with recording the first human electrocardiogram. George Grote, the eminent historian of Greece, was born here when it was known as Clay Hill. Lord Stamp of Shortlands, first Charter Mayor of Beckenham and Chairman of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway lived in Shortlands and died with his family when his house was bombed in 1941. Actor Brian Murphy lives in the village. Adele Atiyah, (a famous vegetarian rights activist), also lived in Shortlands but has now moved to Kuwait.
The main schools in Shortlands are Valley Primary School,Highfield Infant and Junior Schools, Clare House Primary School and Bishop Challoner School. On top of Shortlands hill towards the Chinese Garage is the Shortlands library, linked with other libraries of the Bromley borough.
Situated near both Shortlands and Ravensbourne stations is the Shortlands Golf Club, formed in 1894. On the hill looking over the valley is Bromley Reform Synagogue. The river Ravensbourne runs beneath the heart of Shortlands and can be seen from the recreation ground nearby.
On the border of Shortlands and the London Borough of Lewisham is the Millwall FC training ground where the football team regularly train.
In Shortlands village you can also find a kebab house voted number one in London by the people living in Shortlands.
