Originally, it was a hamlet on Bexley Heath within the parish of Bexley. As the new settlement known as Bexleyheath developed from the late 19th century and the early 20th century, Upton became absorbed into the new town.
From 1887 to 1978, Upton had a hospital on Upton Road. The building was still there in 2019.
