Welling is a suburban area of South East London within the London Borough of Bexley. Today Welling is a vibrant town with an established and growing town centre with some recently opened larger superstores.
Welling railway station is situated close to Central Avenue and offers rail links to a number of London stations including, London Bridge, Charing Cross, Victoria and Cannon Street. In addition, there are excellent links to Dartford and a number of other towns in the North of Kent.
The edge of Welling is dominated by Danson Park, a favourite attraction for residents and visitors alike. It offers a wide range of sports and leisure facilities including football pitches, a lawn bowls club, woodland walks, tennis courts, and a number of attractions for children.
Any boating enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that the park has a large boating lake and the accompanying boathouse hosts functions and lessons. The park is also home to the Grade I listed historical building that is Danson House, a magnificent venue for functions and weddings.
