Until the early 19th century, Bexley Heath was nothing more than an area of scrub land with just a few buildings, although Bexley Heath windmill stood at the corner of what is today Erith Road and Mayplace Road. The heath bordered Watling Street. In 1766 Sir John Boyd had Danson House built in parkland. In 1814 the land to the north of Bexley that would become Bexleyheath became subject to an Enclosure Act. In 1859 architect Philip Webb designed Red House for the artist, reforming designer and socialist William Morris on the western edge of the heath, in the hamlet of Upton. The National Trust acquired the house in 2003. Morris wanted to have a Palace of Art in which he and his friends could enjoy producing works of art. Red House is in a non-historical, brick-and-tile domestic style. It is now a Grade I listed building.
The clock tower at the centre of the modern shopping area, built in 1912, commemorates the coronation of King George V. In the late 1970s the London Borough of Bexley built its headquarters, the Civic Offices, in Bexleyheath.
The Bexleyheath parish church, Christ Church, dates from 1841; and the ecclesiastical parish from 1866; the building of the current church was finished in 1877. Alfred Bean, railway engineer and one-time owner of Danson House, furthered the development of Bexleyheath as a London suburb by championing the Bexleyheath Line in the 1880s to support the growth of estates around Danson Park.
The majority of restaurants and cafes are on Broadway in Bexleyheath. The south side of the central, pedestrianised section of Broadway hosts Broadway Shopping Centre, a covered example that was completed in 1984, and a substantial supermarket was added four years later. A cinema stands to the east facing a medium-sized supermarket.
A renovation in 2008 on "The Mall" gave the shopping centre at Bexleyheath a more modern interior. The appending of "Bexleyheath Square" took place in the early 2000s, with more retail units being added. A good deal of this investment provides local competition to the expansive Bluewater Shopping Centre, set a few miles east in Greenhithe, Kent.
In May 2009 a major redevelopment scheme was approved by Bexleyheath council following public consultation. This involved the redevelopment of the Bexley council buildings. The magistrates' court was to move to a new building where the library stands, which would be incorporated into the new development of three hundred new homes. The work did not go ahead as the shopping centre was eventually sold.
Sometime later, in 2012, the Bexleyheath Civic Offices were converted from the former main office of The Woolwich, which had been vacant for seven years. For the resultant vacant site in June 2018, house builder Bellway was approved to build over five hundred homes, of which more than one hundred had to be affordable. The development will include Bexleyheath's tallest building, which stands at thirteen storeys high, public realm improvements, offices and retail units.
Given cumulative retail investment, Bexleyheath draws many customers particularly from Erith, Thamesmead, Plumstead and Woolwich which adjoin the River Thames.
