Demography

Location and administration
Stretching from the banks of the Thames in the north, to the borders of Bromley in the south, the 13.4 square miles of Lewisham encompass diverse communities, speaking over 170 languages. Lewisham is one of the greenest parts of south-east London. Over a fifth of the borough is parkland or open spaces and this combines with Lewisham’s residential neighbourhoods and waterway network to create a pleasant environment in the midst of bustling city life.
