Where do Beckenham and surrounding areas locals go?

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.

Fee & Brown

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

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.

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!

Love 'A' Slice

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

The Shop Revolution Marketplace

The Shop Revolution Marketplace host lots of unique events like poetry and craft nights, with all the items they sell produced by independent designers and jewellery makers. This picture was taken at a Miss Victoria's Floral Emporium flower arranging workshop.

South Norwood Country Park

Like having the countryside on your doorstep, it is a great place for a bike ride or a dog walk.

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.

Brown & Green Cafe

This charming cafe sells delicious cakes and fried breakfasts. It's a great spot to visit on a lazy Sunday afternoon or after a jog around Mayow Park!

Sapore Vero

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

Pizza at the Palace

Serving great pizzas, I've been going to this restaurant for 25 years!

Bridge House Theatre

West End-quality performances at outer London prices.

Crystal Palace Park

A fantastic spot for enjoying the sunshine!

Brodies

As well as cakes and lunch items, Brodies main selling point is their milkshakes that they make out of any chocolate of your choice...
