About the location
Halton Court is in the Blackheath Quarter of Kidbrooke village under a mile from Blackheath village and 300 metres from Kidbrooke Station and bus stand. From the station Lewisham DLR is only 6 minutes and London Bridge(Tower of London)15 minutes.There is Sainsbury Local, chemist, GP and dentist 5 minutes walk away. I won't bore you explaining what's to be seen in London and the UK but it really is a vibrant city. My son and grandkids live in Greenwich which is a 40 minute walk and on the way I pass the Royal Observatory which has a marvellous view of London. The Kent countryside and coast are easily reached.
