5 things to see and do in...Welling

You’re in Welling, where should you go and what should you see?

Our list is far from exhaustive. If there’s something you feel people MUST see then let us all know in the comments box below.

Supermarket wars

This Is Local London:

Picture: Googlemaps

A lot of people only shop in one supermarket. Others have to travel miles for a superstore. But not the people of Welling, oh no. A giant Tesco is opposite a big Morrisons on Bellegrove Road, with Lidl hidden just around the corner. Iceland’s just over yonder too.

Danson Park

This Is Local London: PubSpy reviews Danson Stables

Quiet down, it’s in Welling. Bexley borough’s best park has all sorts of fun, including a lake where you can go boating and do watersports, and a cool pub, the Danson Stables. It’s a focal point for events like the sadly-defunct Danson Festival.

Cake!

This Is Local London:

Love cake but hate eggs? There’s a shop for that in Welling. Regardless of your opinion on eggs (unless you HAVE to have them in every meal, then your scuppered) Cake Box in Bellegrove Road is the place to go if you want  a gorgeous sweet treat for any occasion.

Listen to some music

This Is Local London:

Cruising Records is a local institution. Not only has it been in Welling for decades, it is still the best record and DVD shop for miles and miles around. Cheap too.

Micropub

This Is Local London: John Hurley outside The Door Hinge in Welling High Street.

Opened last year, the Door Hinge in the High Street was greater London’s first micropub. It has just one room, plays no music and has a no mobile phone policy. It’s a crazy idea, but perhaps you should enjoy the beer and the company.

1. Hillview Cemetary. Welling's largest green space after Danson Park.

2. The Plough & Harrow, At first glance the casual visitor would think they were in a zombie apocalpse movie, but the regulars are far from zombies, they are mongs. At least zombies want to attack you for a reason (and are more handsome).

3. The Guy Earl of Warwick. A vile place populated by types who need to be on medication, ideally the sort used on terminally sick cats & dogs. Sit on your own at the bar on a Sunday lunchtime & see how long before somebody wants to knock your teeth out for blocking his view of the optics.

4. Upper Wickham Lane, the site of the former BNP bunker which was the scene of a riot in 1993, the girlfriend of one of my mates had her front garden wall torn to pieces so the assorted thugs could throw bricks at each other.

5. The 51 bus stops in the High Street, which take you out of the place. Remember: Do not look out of the window unless you are on the top floor before you get into Sidcup.
