Cudham is a village in the London Borough of Bromley in London, UK. It is located 15.5 miles (24.9 km) south-southeast of Charing Cross and about 6 miles (9.7 km) northwest of Sevenoaks.

Cudham church, dedicated to St Peter & St Paul, is mentioned in the Domesday Book.[1] The Blacksmith's Arms, originally a 17th-century farmhouse, has memorabilia of the music hall artiste known as "Little Tich". Cudham was part of Bromley Rural District from 1894 and Orpington Urban District from 1934 to 1965. The village was therefore part of Kent (and therefore administered by Kent County Council) until the creation of Greater London on 1 April 1965.

Cudham Recreation Ground, behind the church and pub, is home to Cudham Wyse Cricket Club, which was formed in 1965.

Cudham hosts an annual festival of music, called "Cudham Craic"; usually in August with around 500 visitors. It takes place in the - rather large - garden of the Blacksmith's Arms with an outside stage, bar, barbecue and stage shows.
