“Blackheath stretches across the very top of south east London from Greenwich Park into the cosmopolitan, pretty village. It’s often a bit breezy across the Heath so it’s a favourite spot for kite flyers, wind-skateboarders and dogs. It’s always been a great meeting point for crowds – Wat Tyler’s revolting peasants gathered here in 1381, for example. Nowadays it’s home to fun fairs, a music festival, lots of weekend football pitches and the start of the London Marathon.”
