Directions from the Shortlands station (best) Bromley South Station or Glades
Le Chic Boutique is only 2 minutes walk from Shortlands station, which is 20 minutes from London Victoria.
For satellite navigation systems, please note that our postfcode is BR2 0DN, that’s Zero DN.
The shop is in Shortlands village, not in the Glades or Bromley High Street, quite a walk away. If driving, we don’t recommend going via the Glades, but enough customers know it to encourage us to show directions.
If you were walking from the Bromley Station, turn right out of the station and walk along the High Street, up the hill to the Glades. It’s quite a walk so we’d recommend a taxi.
If you decide to walk, continue on up the High Street and go past HSBC & McDonalds and on past the Empire cinema and to the Swan and Mitre pub. You’ll see the Magistrate’s Court across the road. Turn left downhill at this junction, down Beckenham Lane. Le Chic Boutique is at the bottom of the hill, 20-30 minutes walk from Bromley South station.
We are at the Zebra crossing on the Bromley side of the bridge.
Travelling by Bus
Buses 227 and 358 stop outside the door, beside the Zebra crossing.
Travelling by train
If you’d like to avoid the traffic and queues, you can arrive by train. There between two and six trains an hour from London Victoria to Shortlands which is two minutes walk away from our shop. Come out of the station, turn right, go under the bridge, straight across the road and we are on the right of the parade of shops.
