A guide to summer activities in Bexley

Located right in the heart of the London Borough of Bexley, The Quarry’s neighbourhood is host to an incredible range of activities to keep the kids smiling all summer long. With just one month left of the summer holidays, we’ve selected the top 5 things to fill the coming weeks with fun.


Sprinkle some magic on your summer at Fairy School


This month, Hall Place is being transformed into a world of enchantment and magic as children are given the chance to attend Fairy School. With a day of dance classes, storytelling and crafts, your kids will be smiling from ear to ear. Fancy dress is fully encouraged – for dates and times please visit the website.


Enjoy tastes from across the globe at Erith Kitchen


This month will see the return of Erith Kitchen, bringing fantastic food and family fun to Pier Road. Dine on delicacies from all around the world – we recommend the Caribbean cuisine from Back-a-Yard Grill or the delicious African fair from Mitojo. With live music and a bar, Erith Kitchen has the perfect ingredients for your Friday night.


Cool off from the summer sun at Danson Splash Park


Enjoy a great family day out this August with a trip to Danson Splash Park. The fantastic selection of slides and swings will keep the kids occupied, whilst adults can enjoy the sunshine in the calm surroundings of the nearby lake and vast green spaces. Bring a picnic along and enjoy a day of family fun!


Discover the unique offerings of local businesses at Southmere Sundays


Once a month, this bustling market brings together local businesses to showcase an array of unique products that can’t be found on the high street. Featuring delicious food stalls, beautiful jewellery shops and kid-friendly entertainment, there’s something for the whole family at Southmere Sundays!


Embrace your inner peace with a Yoga class at The Exchange


Take time to unwind with some well-deserved relaxation at The Exchange’s morning yoga class. Learn a new skill and find a sense of calm whilst increasing your mobility and improving your balance. Taking place every Saturday morning, this class enables you to kick your weekend off to a great start – suitable for all levels.


Just a 40-minute train ride from central London (with journey times set to fall with the opening of nearby Crossrail stations at Abbey Wood and Woolwich), the town of Erith provides its community with a considerably calmer pace of living than the bustling city centre.


The Quarry is a collection of around 600 homes and a state-of-the-art primary school in central Erith. The development is breathing new life into the disused quarry which has lain neglected for the past 40 years. The Quarry offers high quality, considered living, with innovative design which builds on the ecology of the site.
