West Wickham

West Wickham boasts a rich history dating back to early settlements existing since 1068.

The High Street and Station Road, boasts a wealth of local retail outlets, pubs and restaurants. The restaurants offer a diverse range of cultural cuisines: Topolinos/Prima Donnas (Italian); The Blue Bengal (Indian Food) to name but a few.

There are some famous pubs, including the recently refurbished 'The Railway' opposite West Wickham railway station and 'The Swan' located on the High Street.

The town appeared in the 2000 UK television series 'The 1940s House', with 17 Braemar Gardens taking the starring role as a family lived a World War II experience in a typical London suburb.[1]

West Wickham Swimming Pools offers excellent gym and swimming facilities and is run as a charitable trust. It also hosts a plaque containing the original bark of Stock Tree (a tree so called as it was behind the village stocks) that once stood opposite 'The Swan' which was cut down owing to the requirement to build a new road.

West Wickham is also home to Beccehamians RFC a Rugby Union Club founded in 1933 (formerly Old Beccehamians RFC) which plays competitive rugby in the Men's Premier League in Kent (Kent 1). Other clubs nearby include Croydon RFC (formerly Shirley Wanderers) and Beckenham RFC.

West Wickham has a thriving range of social clubs for the over 50's as there is a significant proportion of the population in this age bracket. Examples would include Spring Park Social club that meets three times a month at St Marks Church Hall just off the high street.
