Behind the modern appearance of Orpington can be found a long and interesting history dating back to the Stone Age. The town has some historic site and buildings, particularly around the historic parkland setting of the Priory Gardens.
All the buildings in this northern part of the town are within a Conservation Area and the Priory, its outbuildings and walls are designated Listed Buildings. The park is also Grade II listed on the English Heritage's register of parks and gardens.
Orpington Priory, Museum and Gardens is an attraction unique in South London. It offers visitors free access, 365 days a year to listed Arts and Crafts style gardens within a setting steeped in medieval history. The Good Gardens Guide describes the gardens as "one of the most tastefully-gardened public space in outer London". The Priory, parts of which date back to the thirteenth century, is the Bromley borough's only Grade II list that is fully accessible to the public, free of charge. The museum is housed within The Priory and it plays an important role in the education of school children by providing a free service to support the national curriculum.
Orpington Priory, Museum and Gardens offer a range of leisure and educational facilities for the whole borough as well as an important focus to the town or Orpington.
