ROYAL PARADE

Chislehurst

Royal Parade is located in an unspoilt Victorian part of Chislehurst which retains its Kent country village charm. The name Chislehurst is derived from the Saxon words cisel “gravel” and hyrst “wooded hill”.

Royal Parade has approximately 20 independent shops with Pizza Express and a friendly 15 room hotel and public house making up our quaint tree lined parade. We cater for a great variety of daily and specialist needs with a hair and beauty spa, luxury delicatessen, art gallery and bespoke jewellers to name but a few.

One of our local attactions is Chislehurst Caves which are considered to be of ancient origin. During World War II thousands of people used them at night as air raid shelters. There was a chapel in the caves and history says they even ran an efficient postal system in them during the war. In latter years famous artists such as Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Rolling Stones have played there.

The Walsingham Family, Sir Thomas Walsingham and Queen Elizabeth I’s spymaster Francis Walsingham all had a home in nearby Scadbury Park, which is now a nature reserve and the ruins of the house can still be seen.

Famous residents include:

  • William Hyde Wollaston – Chemist/Physicist who discovered rhodium, and palladium
  • Malcolm Campbell – former land and water speed record holder
  • Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte – President of France, Emperor of the French lived and died in Camden Place
