Chislehurst () is a suburban district of south-east London, England, in the London Borough of Bromley. It lies east of Bromley, south-west of Sidcup and north-west of Orpington, 10 miles (16 km) south-east of Charing Cross. Before the creation of Greater London in 1965, it was in Kent. == History == The name "Chislehurst" is derived from the Saxon words cisel, "gravel", and hyrst, "wooded hill". The Walsingham family, including Christopher Marlowe's patron, Sir Thomas Walsingham and Queen Elizabeth I's spymaster, Francis Walsingham, had a home in Scadbury Park, now a nature reserve in which the ruins of the house can still be seen.A water tower used to straddle the road from Chislehurst to Bromley until it was demolished in 1963 as one of the last acts of the Chislehurst and Sidcup UDC. It marked the entrance to the Wythes Estate in Bickley, but its narrow archway meant that double-decker buses were not able to be used on the route.

Wonderful garden designer and a pleasure to work with. Victoria listened carefully to what we wanted, and contributed lots of ideas to help us get what we wanted with our fairly limited budget. All plants have been carefully selected to ensure we have colour in the garden all year round, and seem to be thriving. We are absolutely delighted with our garden and looking forward to our second summer in it.
