Where do Beckenham and surrounding areas locals go?

Love 'A' Slice

Cheesecakes, cream cakes and milkshakes - heaven for those with a sweet tooth!

Coppers

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!

Sapore Vero

Lovely little Italian restaurant with wood fire cooked pizzas! Also accept Tastecards in the week, which is a great bargain!

Kelsey Park

Although not the biggest park around, Kelsey Park is a peaceful, leafy spot with a large pond and a cafe. A great place to bring the kids, where they can run around the playground.

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.

Alexandra Nurseries

Fantastic independent café, home and garden centre.

Mr Simms

Old fashioned sweets and American candy in abundance!

Kelsey House

One of my favourite spots in Beckenham! A bar and restaurant with rustic, trendy interiors.

Crystal Palace National Sports Centre

Crystal Palace National Sports Centre has everything you would want, from a pool, to a gym, to exercise classes.

Fee & Brown

There is truly only one place to go in Beckenham. That's Fee & Brown for coffee, coffee, coffee!

Palace Spice

This Indian restaurant's food is delicious. I am constantly ordering too much, but never upset by the bill. They always offer me free drinks too!

Churchill Theatre

Lots of great shows throughout the year, including plays and world-famous music artists.

South Norwood Lake and Grounds

Feeding the ducks on South Norwood Lake is a great way to escape city life.

Brown & Green Cafe

Grab a quick snack and a coffee whilst at Crystal Palace Station.
