Living in Biggin Hill
Biggin Hill became famous during the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940, when Spitfire squadrons were stationed there and it was also regarded as Britain’s principal fighter station. But whilst the town was built on its WWII heritage, Biggin Hill’s various pubs and restaurants, modest leisure activities, and quality transport links are what make people want to live and stay here.

“I have worked in Biggin Hill for the last 8 years and I love the town as you get the feel of living in the countryside but are a stone’s throw away from London.”
