The car parks in Albion Road; at the Cineworld cinema in Broadway, Bexleyheath; at the Civic Office in Broadway; in Oaklands and at Tenpin Bowling in Albion Road, Bexleyheath, are all free.

Cllr Gareth Bacon, the cabinet member for environment and public realm, said: “We want Bexleyheath to be the place to be for Christmas shopping.”
