You can tell us more about Penge.

The Best Things
  • Cheap little shops. Friendly locals...some of them. Take a walk around Alexandra Park when locals are walking their dogs...that's when the locals are at their nicest. (Not when they are chucked out of the Pawleyne Arms with blood dripping from their noses)
  • The GoldSmiths Pub
  • A Shabby glorious Victorian suburb.
  • i know that penge is not the best place to live but there was no need for someone, who sounds like they have not lived here for long to call all the people in Penge Pike's. The thing is it the outsidereds that have made Penge the way it is today and not the Penge people. i have lived here for 25years and it has been the best time of my life Thnak you very much.
  • the very few white people
  • I have lived here 14 years and reckon Penge has a real community feel about it. This is probably because everybody here knows we are being dumped on by Bromley council. I would not live anywhere else in London.
  • Dave the singing market trader, brighten up anyones day !!!!!
  • Erm...good choice of takeaways. There's a Woolworths and a good Boots, Superdrugs, and an expensive pharmacy. Not that that's brilliant, but, I'm trying here. I'm struggling for idea's.
  • The now shabby once grand Victorian-ness of the place
  • we have a great park crystal palace park entrance in thicket road se20 great for all dinosaur lovers and to scare the little kids currently under renovation and a massive boating lake and a mini zoo also a karting track for cars u will hear where this is and of course the nationa sports stadium
  • Living in London!!!
