About

Charlton was formerly an ancient parish in the county of Kent, which became part of the metropolitan area of London in 1855.  It is home to Charlton Athletic Football Club, as well as Charlton House which is a Jacobean mansion built by architect John Thorpe, and is known as the best preserved ambitious Jacobean house in Greater London.  Since 1925, this house has been owned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and serves as a library and community centre.  Charlton is also home to a number of parks including Maryon Park, Maryon Wilson Park and Hornfair Park (which is home to the newly opened Charlton Lido: http://www.gll.org/leisure/charlton-lido/).  There are large retail parks close to the river, with smaller, more specialised shops, along Charlton Church Lane and in Charlton Village.
