A guided tour takes place this weekend
Residents are being invited to take a step back in time and look around the “jewel in the crown” of the borough’s heritage this weekend.
Bromley Civic Society is holding a walk around Bromley Palace grounds on Sunday, which will look at the building’s transformation from the Georgian home of the Bishops of Rochester from the 12th century until it came into the hands of Victorian businessman Coles Child in 1845 and was completely transformed.
Peter Martin from the society said: “The 18th century Bromley Palace is the jewel in the crown of Bromley’s heritage.
“Inside we will see the magnificent grand staircase, carved oak panels, Robert Adams fireplace and more.
“The walk will also take in the palace park including the St Blaise Well, the Pulham Rocks, the Ice House, Ha Ha and Victorian folly.”
Booking for the tour, which starts at 10am on Sunday, May 21, is essential and must be done through the civic society’s website at www.bromleycivicsociety.org.uk.
