Bromley North is located at the southern end of a short branch line from Grove Park from where connections can be made for London Bridge, Cannon Street and Charing Cross.

Bromley is the principal town in the London Borough of Bromley. It is a suburban development situated 9.3 miles (14.9 km) south east of Charing Cross.

The town has a large shopping and retail area including a pedestrianised High Street and The Glades shopping centre. The London Borough of Bromley Civic Centre is located in the town.

H. G. Wells, most famous for his book The War of the Worlds, was born in Bromley. In August 2005, the wall honouring H.G Wells outside various coffee shops was repainted. The current wall painting features a rich green background with the same H.G Wells reference and the evolution sequence of homosapiens featured on Origin of Species by Charles Darwin.

Bromley is also known for The Bromley Contingent, who were a group of followers and fans of the Sex Pistols, including Siouxsie Sioux, Sid Vicious and Billy Idol who went on to become famous themselves.

Other famous people who lived in Bromley include David Bowie who went to Ravenswood School for Boys and Aleister Crowley, who had stayed shortly to study Freemasonry in Locksbottom.

The Underground Map

The Underground Map is a website dedicated to some of the more obscure pieces of London Town (as well as some of the more well-known places).

The Underground Map project is creating a decade-by-decade series of historical maps of the area which lies within London's M25 ring.

From the 1800s until the 1950s, you can see how London grew from a city which only reached as far as Park Lane into the post war megapolis we know today.

Find the streets of London by clicking STREETS above or explore the maps by clicking MAP.

The Underground Map works best if you log in using Facebook.
