Bromley is a district of South East London, England and the administrative headquarters of the London Borough of Bromley. It was historically a market town chartered since 1158 and an ancient parish in the county of Kent. Its location on a coaching route and the opening of a railway station in 1858 were key to its development, and the economic history of Bromley is underpinned by a shift from an agrarian village to commerce and retail. As part of the suburban growth of London in the 20th century, Bromley significantly increased in population and was incorporated as a municipal borough in 1903. It has developed into one of a handful of regionally significant commercial and retail districts outside central London[1] and has formed part of Greater London since 1965. The area is identified in the London Plan as being one of 12 Metropolitan Centres of Greater London.
