London area of SE7 guide
What to do and where to stay in London's SE7 neighbourhood
Largely residential Charlton makes up the SE7 postcode. Apart from the Thames Barrier, the area's most notable feature is Charlton House, widely regarded as the best-preserved ambitious Jacobean building in London. In the grounds of the grand mansion the oldest Mulberry Tree in Britain is to be found, planted at the suggestion of James I in 1608 in an effort to cultivate silkworms. St Luke's Church in Charlton is the burial place of Spencer Perceval (1762''“1812), the only British Prime Minister to be assassinated. The area has a large Irish community, while Charlton Athletic FC play at their much-loved stadium, The Valley, a former chalk pit situated to the north of Charlton village.
