National League 3 London & SE (up until 2009 known as London 1) is a level five league in the English rugby union system. It is one of four leagues at this level, with its counterparts; National League 3 South West, National League 3 Midlands and National League 3 North. The format of the league was changed at the beginning of the 2009–10 season following re-organisation by the Rugby Football Union.

National League 3 London & SE is the highest, regional rugby union league covering London and south east England. The club that finishes in first place is automatically promoted to National League 2 South. The runner-up meets the second placed team of National League 3 South West with the winner also gaining promotion. Relegated teams drop down to either London 1 North or London 1 South depending on location, and other factors such as the location of relegated and promoted teams in other divisions.

Green backgrounds are promotion places.
  1. ^ The creation of a new division 4 for the next season in the London league would lead to a restructure of the whole league including a downsizing of this division from 17 teams to 12 resulting in much more relegation spots than usual.
  2. ^ The division would be renamed National League 3 London & South East for the next season and along with the whole national restructure of the league system by the RFU lead to mass changes at all levels.
