Belvedere is a town of south east London, England in the London Borough of Bexley. It is located south east of Thamesmead and is located roughly 12 miles (19 kilometres) southeast of Charing Cross. Belvedere was in Kent, and still has a Kent postcode. It formed part of the Municipal Borough of Erith prior to 1965 and development occurred before the Second World War, with significant renovation work following the Blitz. Regardless of this, Upper Belvedere as well as the Village still features a great deal of its Victorian and Edwardian appeal and character. Upper Belvedere boasts a church and numerous Victorian and Edwardian brick villas. It includes a plenty of traditional pubs, restaurants and retail outlets. These include The Eardley Arms on Woolwich Road, The Vic on Victoria Street, The Royal Standard in the centre of the village as well as the Fox in Belvedere village. Upper Belvedere is also home to a large sized park and a library which was in danger of getting closed as a result of local government cuts. Fortunately this danger has been stopped as a result from the efforts with the local neighbourhood. A new 'Splash Park', which opened in 2005, was a popular addition for the village, having been developed on the site of an old Victorian paddling pool. The splash park preserves parts of the historically significant paddling pool buildings. Between 1898 and 1961, Callender's Cable Works, at the Erith Works, was patron to Callender's Cableworks Band, an amateur brass band formed of employees of the business. The band was a successful broadcaster on BBC Radio in the 1920s and 1930s.
