Once the haunt of highwaymen and revolting peasants, and setting for occasions of royal splendour, Blackheath boasts some glorious architecture - from 18C speculative building to 20C experimentation. The village has always attracted the upwardly-mobile, lured by its healthy aspect and ease of transport. Now South London's prettiest village is renowned for its buzzing cafe and restaurant culture and the start of the London marathon.
