Coppers is a beautiful restaurant in an old police station. The food here is lovely and the afternoon tea with prosecco is a real treat!

Deli Nene

If you're looking for a tasty white hot chocolate whilst you get lost in a good book, a £5 English breakfast to cure your ills from the night before, a place to take the kids whilst you catch up with friends and loved ones, or a great daytime into nighttime date location, then Deli Nene is the place to go.

What locals say about Beckenham

  1. It is a calm, prestigious place to work and live.

  2. After coming to terms with the fact that I could only afford a parking space in Zone 1, I soon realised that Beckenham offered the best of both worlds. Easy access to Victoria, London Bridge, Dulwich, Croydon & Gatwick amongst others, along with the open spaces and decent house sizes of the suburbs.

  3. Beckenham is far enough out of London to have a lovely, village (or small town!) community feel. There are great green spaces - Kelsey Park, Croydon Recreation Ground, Beckenham Place Park and more - which make this a family-friendly place to live.

  4. I love Beckenham because of the schools and proximity to London.

  5. The cycle routes from Cator Park along the river (Waterlink Way) to Greenwich (45 mins,) London Bridge (60mins), Canary Wharf, Greenwich and beyond. Beautiful quiet routes.
