shop is in Shortlands village, not in the Glades or Bromley High Street, quite a walk away. If driving, we don’t recommend going via the Glades, but enough customers
know it to encourage us to show directions.

It's quite a walk so we'd recommend a taxi.

Street and go past HSBC & McDonalds and on past the Empire cinema and to the Swan and Mitre pub.

down Beckenham Lane. Le Chic Boutique is at the bottom of the hill, 20-30 minutes walk from Bromley
