Lee (also Lee Green) is a suburban district of South East London, within the London Boroughs of Lewisham and Greenwich. It is located west of Eltham and south east of Lewisham.

St Margaret's Church (built 1839–41, architect: John Brown) is the burial place of three Astronomers Royal: Edmond Halley, Nathaniel Bliss and John Pond. It had (until 2006) two public houses with almost identical names – The Old Tiger's Head and The New Tiger's Head – facing each other on opposite sides of the same road. Folklore states that The Old Tiger's Head is in fact the newer of the two.
