Within Longlands the place gives it name to Longlands Recreation Ground, Longlands Primary School, Longlands Road and Longlands Park Crescent. Also things found within the ward of Longlands include Queen Mary's Hospital, Frognal Corner Roundabout, Sidcup Fire Station, Sidcup Place, two primary schools, Longlands primary school and Dulverton Primary School, one secondary school, St Mary and St Joseph's Catholic School, and a small college. These are all part of the Sidcup post town, with the exception of Dulverton Primary School which occupies the small westerly part of the ward that overlaps into the SE9postcode district, that is within the London post town.The small river Wyncham Stream also flows from Chislehurst northward through Longlands toward Lamorbey and finally into the River Shuttle.
