There are plans in place to make Thamesmead one of London’s most bio-diverse and sustainable residential urban areas.

With the tranquil landscapes on their doorsteps and the opening of the new Crossrail station at Abbey Wood on the horizon, residents at Thamesmead have the best of both worlds. Crossrail will halve the journey times into many central London destinations and will transform the area by attracting new residents, businesses and investment.

Thamesmead sits across the border of two boroughs, Bexley to the east and Greenwich to the west, both of which have excellent attributes and amenities on offer.
