BexleyAlthough only 12 miles south east of central London (30 minutes by train), Bexley boasts over 1500 acres of open space and green parkland. Danson Park, believed to have been landscaped by the famous 'Capability Brown', is the setting for many of Bexley's annual summer events. Historic attractions include Hall Place, a Jacobean mansion house featuring award-winning gardens, set beside the River Cray. Lesnes Abbey built in the 12th century by Richard de Lucy, Chief Justice to Henry II, is also located in the borough. Other places of interest include the David Evans Silk Centre & Museum which outlines the history of silk and provides demonstrations of hand-silk printing.
