Petts Wood is the name given to an area of woodland as well as the district that surrounds it in the borough of Bromley. It has been hailed as a notable example of 20th century inter-war town planning, as the residential areas were designed around the train station and shops, which sat in the middle, a technique that has been copied in towns throughout the UK. Petts Wood is home to a surprisingly varied array of shops and there is no shortage of churches. Charles de Gaulle resided here during World War II, and deadpan comic Jack Dee hails from the area.
