New Homes in Abbey Wood

Part Greenwich, part Bexley, Abbey Wood is a South East London neighbourhood which lies between Woolwich and Erith on the southern bank of the River Thames. Right next to Welling and Bexleyheath, houses in Abbey Wood have benefited from the arrival of London's Crossrail.

Whether that’s handy for getting across the city for work or play, you only need step out of your new home to enjoy the local woods and spots like Southmere Park. Visit Lesnes Abbey, go for a walk over to Bostall Heath and Clam Field too, once you pick from our new homes near Abbey Wood below.

Things to see and do in Abbey Wood

This area is ideal for riverside walks just steps from home, while Abbey Wood is surrounded by forested land such as Lesnes Abbey Woods and Bostall Heath and Woods. As well as central parks and playing fields, you can also go for a stroll around South Mere and its adjoining park. 

The ruins of Lesnes Abbey are a must-see, while the same goes for the 25-hectare Crossness Nature Reserve on the bank of the Thames. From waterfront attractions to cultural draws, green spaces and great access to the beautiful Kent coast, there are lots of great ways to spend your time no matter your age, tastes or family situation. 


If your family situation involves children, there are a number of local schools rated as good by Ofsted. This includes Boxgrove Primary and Alexander McLeod Primary. Bedonwell Infant and Nursery School and Bannockburn Primary, meanwhile, are outstanding options in the local area with catchment areas which stretch to Abbey Wood. 

At secondary level, two of the best options are St Paul’s Academy and Woolwich Polytechnic School. Both are classed as good by the education board, with the former a mixed school and the latter boys only. 

Abbey Wood transport links

Abbey Wood is the south east terminus of Crossrail’s Elizabeth line, which gives you incredible access to Central London, other parts of the capital and beyond. It also means you’ll get a seat on your morning journey to work. You can catch Thameslink and Southeastern trains from Abbey Wood station on Abbey Road too, while London City Airport is only a few miles away across the Thames. 

The Abbey Wood property scene

The property housing market in Abbey Wood has received a shot in the arm from Crossrail, but property prices are still considerably lower than the London average. This gap is set to narrow in the coming years as the benefits of the Elizabeth line become more apparent, so now is the time to buy a home in the area. 

From period semis to large terraced properties suitable for growing families and spacious flats, you can also find stunning new apartments just over the river in places like East Ham and Upton Park. So take stock of your options today, factor in offers like the Government-backed London Help to Buy scheme, and give us a call to discuss what you’re looking for.
