Orpington is a typical south London suburb, there are wide tree-lined streets, plenty of parks, and little in the way of public transport, however the overground at Orpington station links to Victoria, London Bridge and Charing Cross. You’ll find huge, detached bungalow-style properties but there are more affordable family homes too; further draws are the reputation of the local schools and the ‘safe’ character of the area. The Walnuts Shopping Centre and the high street have a good mix of retain outlets, and the area also boasts a leisure centre complete with mammoth swimming pool. Sporting fans of all descriptions can make use of rugby, cricket, hockey and football pitches locally.
