Lewisham is a cosmopolitan area in south-east London, occupied by energetic, creative and diverse communities. Lewisham benefits from attractive residential neighbourhoods and one of the highest number of parks and green spaces in London.

It’s a place that is changing rapidly. There are exciting developments happening in the town centres and local neighbourhoods, bringing new housing, schools and leisure facilities to the area.

Lewisham has excellent transport links. London Overground now connects more of Lewisham with central London and the tube network. It’s also easy to reach Canary Wharf, the City, London City Airport and the new international rail terminal at Stratford.
