The ward of Bickley (red) shown within the London Borough of Bromley (orange)
Bickley is a residential area and electoral ward in the London Borough of Bromleymarker, Englandmarker. It is a suburban development situated 10.4 miles (16.7 km) south east of Charing Crossmarker.

Bickley is a very popular residential area, well known for its large and expensive houses. It lies between Bromley to the west, Chislehurst to the north-east and Petts Wood to the south-east. It is unusual in that for a well known location with its own railway station, its only shops are a very useful local parade at the junction of The Fairway and Southborough Lane. Bickley station earned the dubious honour of being proclaimed the most vandalised station in England; incidents soared from three in 2001 to 87 in 2006, a rise of 2800%, according to the Daily Mail.
