Family information

I live in Blackheath and have been in South East London for over 20 years. I love all that London offers and enjoy going to exhibitions, the theatre and markets. A favourite is a visit to Borough Market and then a walk along the Thames, past the Globe and Tate Modern, to the Southbank. You would be welcome to join  me.

About the teacher’s accommodation

I live in a 1960’s townhouse close to the centre of Blackheath. The house is in a small, quiet square and only a 5 minute walk to the shops, restaurants and cafes in the village. Blackheath is a great location to explore the city with the centre of London only 20 minutes by train.  The accommodation is a double room with private bathroom. The house also has a pretty garden which you will be welcome to use.

 

About the local area

Blackheath is a leafy ‘village’ in South East London. It is known for its Heath, a huge park, and vibrant cafes, restaurants and pubs.
