Bromley Church House Gardens
Seventeen hectares of landscaped gardens are an oasis of calm in the middle of bustling Bromley town centre. The gardens were originally two separate sites, but became one following a series of bombing raids during the Second World War that destroyed all of the buildings between the parks. On a warm sunny day this is an ideal place for a picnic, and children are bound to enjoy the chance to run around and make lots of noise! Church Road, Bromley, Kent BR1 1HA
Bromley Museum and Priory Gardens
Bromley Museum is situated in the Orpington Priory, and is an important historic building set in attractive gardens. Throughout the year a number of temporary exhibitions and events are held. The museum is also home to a permanent display about the history of the local area, including an archeology gallery providing an insight into the Norman invasion and a room dedicated to toys and games from the 1950’s to present day. The museum is ideal for adults and children alike. Best of all entry is free! www.bromley.gov.uk/leisure/museums/brommuseum/
