Hither Green is a well kept secret among Londoners. Solidly middle-class, it has a good selection of stately older homes and new developments and is a popular choice for families because of the good schools and many local activities. It also benefits from a residential population that's dedicated to maintaining a strong community: they work on restoring local landmarks, planting trees, hosting events, and in general making this a great place to live.

If you do decide to live here, you'll have a wide variety of homes to choose from. Hither Green has late Victorian and Edwardian homes (in terraced, detached, and semi-detached forms), prewar homes, and some newer apartment buildings. Prices are quite affordable considering the amount of space you get. That affordability has made this neighborhood a draw for young families and couples. 

There are a ton of shopping and dining optons around town, mostly located around the main thoroughfare of Lee High Road. And as mentioned, Hither Green does offer a lot of activities – in fact, there are generally several activities happening every day of the week, including dance classes for toddlers, a sewing club, kids’ clubs, group walks, and film nights. 

Hither Green is bordered on the north by Lewisham, on the east by Lee, on the south by Catford, and on the west by Brockley.
