Cruise enjoyed plenty of time in Bromley last summer while filming two back-to-back Mission: Impossible films — the seventh and eighth instalments of the franchise.
Although it wasn’t his first time in the area – the action film superstar is more than familiar with the South East.
Cruise previously owned a sprawling £3million mansion in East Grinstead in nearby Sussex.
He sold the property in 2016 but there’s something that has kept drawing him back to the county ever since.
Cruise is believed to have spent lockdown at Saint Hill Manor in the town, which is also the British headquarters of the Church of Scientology.
He is understood to be an active member of the organisation and has formed a close relationship with Scientology leader.
According to an insider close to Cruise, the actor very much enjoys living in the rural south of England.
The source said: “Tom has only recently moved to this new home, which feels like it’s practically in the countryside.
“He sees it as his rural bolt-hole, away from the hustle and bustle of London where he had been before.”
