Lewisham is a district that is situated in the southern part of the city of London, in what is known as the ceremonial county of Greater London. A Lewisham holiday rental house is the ideal base from which to explore all of the attractions and sights that this bustling, vibrant capital city has to offer. A Lewisham holiday will leave you feeling exhausted but very, very happy.
Due to the fact that the district of Lewisham is located in the heart of a big city, visitors will find that there is not a huge amount of activities available. Visitors can enjoy some activities in Lewisham including the likes of swimming, golf, tennis, walking, football, netball and cycling. The district itself does have a few wonderful churches and parks that visitors will love to see during their stay including St Mary the Virgin Church which is the oldest church in Lewisham having been built in the middle of the 19th century.
If you feel the need to venture further afield than London then it is recommended that you secure your Lewisham holiday rental house and head for the town of Maidstone, which is approximately 31 miles away from the district. Maidstone has several great attractions to be enjoyed such as the Kent Life Museum. This is an open-air museum filled with old buildings, many of which were dismantled and moved to the museum since it opened in 1985. Visitors can enjoy visiting an old recreated forge, an 18th century farmhouse, a 19th century granary and several cottages which were moved to the museum which would have otherwise been destroyed with the building of the Channel Tunnel.
