A truly unique town with a truly unique history. Now it's time for a new chapter.

Thamesmead is the perfect name for a thriving Thames-side town. Spanning the London boroughs of Greenwich and Bexley, downstream from Maritime Greenwich, this is a unique place with a unique history.

This former marshland has saved London from cholera, hosted the 'secret city' that armed Britain for two world wars, and pioneered a world-famous new town.

Now it’s time for a new chapter. More than £1 billion will be invested here, creating thousands of new homes and jobs, a new arts and culture programme and transformative transport connections. Thamesmead’s potential is about to be realised.
