Hither Green is a area in southeast London, England, located in the London Borough of Lewisham and south of central Lewisham. It is situated 6.6 miles (10.6 km) south east of Charing Cross (a point considered to be the centre of London from which distances are measured), and on the Prime Meridian.
Growing extensively with the arrival of the railways, Hither Green is characterised by late 19th and early 20th century Victorian and Edwardian domestic architecture, most notably the Corbett Estate. The railway runs through the centre of the area, with Staplehurst Road and its shopping parade to the east, and Hither Green Lane to the west. The lane dates back to Roman times and runs between the Quaggy and Ravensbourne rivers.
