Upton was an area of Bexleyheath in the London Borough of Bexley.

It was a hamlet which was engulfed when the new town of Bexleyheath developed during the early 20th century. It included for a short period Red House, the elegant brick and tile home designed by Philip Webb for William Morris, now preserved by the National Trust. It also had a hospital that can still be seen on Upton Road in Bexleyheath.
