Honor Oak is a suburban London locality situated almost entirely in the borough of Lewisham. A small portion of the area falls under the local authority of the borough of Southwark. Legend has it that the area gets its name from a magnificent oak tree standing tall atop a hill in the vicinity. It is believed that Elizabeth the First and Sir Richard Bulkeley enjoyed a picnic under the tree in the 17th century, making it a famous landmark in the area that eventually came to be known by its name. Today, although the original tree does not exist, you can see a replica of the tree on the hill which was planted in the early 20th century. The area also has popular attractions such as the Horniman Museum and Aquarium.
The area is home to numerous serviced offices that are rented by varied businesses. Flooring companies, real estate agents, motoring dealerships, outdoor professionals and news agents are the different types of businesses in the locality. The retail sector is well represented by stores such as specialist dry cleaners, barbers, nail art studios, chemists, fashion houses, and general stores. PS Solutions Ltd, London Print Shop Ltd and Shabbir & Co are all businesses which can be found in Honor Oak.
