PLACES OF INTEREST
Here are some of the places of historical interest in and around Sidcup.
Sidcup Place is situated in the park which is named after it. In the park there are tennis court, a pitch-and putt golf course, a putting green, a children's playground and some very attractive gardens. The house itself is now a pub/restaurant with many of the original features tastefully incorporated into the decor.
Sidcup Manor House is opposite Sidcup Place on the Green, near St John's Church. It is now the Public Register Office and is an attractive venue for weddings.
Lamorbey Park is the original home of the Lamorbey & Sidcup Local History Society. At the time the Society was founded it was an Adult Education Centre. Now it is the campus of the Rose Bruford School of Dramatic Arts. There is a good view of the house from the opposite side of the lake in The Glade.
Frognal House is one of the oldest surviving buildings in Sidcup. It is next to Queen Mary's Hospital and is now an Assisted Living Home. It has been open to the public on London Open House Weekends in September.
Five Arches Bridge was once part of the Footscray Place estate. Footscray Place itself is now unfortunately demolished but the Foots Cray Meadows which are on the site of the estate is a picturesque part of Sidcup.
