Sunday 17th July:
11am – 4pmExhibition: The story of Bromley’s growth is told in an exhibition of old photos – from a small market town with a charter granted by Ethelbert, King of Kent – to a coaching stop on the way from London to the coast – to become a grand and flourishing Victorian town where HG Wells was born and grew up and where some remarkable buildings in the Arts and Crafts style of architecture were constructed.
The heritage walks will start from the exhibition.
Sunday 17th July:
11.30amFamily Heritage Trail
A short walk (approx. 1.5hrs) around the High Street for families with children – adults without children are welcome! People on the walk will be asked to see if they can look up and spot ‘treasures’ of heritage interest usually high up on buildings. There will be stories to tell about each of the items – all part of discovering Bromley’s fascinating heritage.

Outside there is the ‘hidden gem’ of the park behind the Palace with its ice house, cascades and Victorian folly.
