Penge has bad rep. It's said to be the archetypal boring commuter town. I'm not saying it's actually the most exciting place in London but it's not a bad place to buy in my opinion. It has two stations (yes, great for commuting lol) but it's also right on the edge of Crystal Palace park (and so not that far from Crystal Palace) and it has the Bridge House, which is a very decent boozer. And compared to the likes of Crystal Palace it's great value for money. Attractive Victorian houses can be bought here for a small fraction of what you'd pay in more fashionable parts of London
Hey Big Trev, just wondering where you heard that Penge was a boring commuter town?
