Scadbury Park

Scadbury Park Nature Reserve lies on the eastern edge of Chislehurst, overlooking the valley of the River Cray. With over 300 acres of beautiful countryside to explore, it forms part of a wildlife corridor linking to open countryside from Jubilee Country Park through Petts Wood and Scadbury, along the London Loop.

The Friends of Scadbury work to enable residents and visitors to enjoy this wild and natural haven. Please, come and join us!

Idyllic, many different areas - each with a different geology. A circular walk which takes around an hour to complete, unless you are transfixed by its beauty and linger on.

A beautiful mixture of woodland and meadow. Lots of gorgeous oaks. A great place for children, families and dogs. It has a wonderful history with the beautiful old remains of the moated house.
