Where do Elmers End locals go?

South Norwood Country Park

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

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.

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.

Love 'A' Slice

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

The Gold Coast

Serving the best food from the motherland, Ghana! The jollof rice served with domedo (seasoned and spiced pork) is to die for... It reminds me of mummy's cooking!

Sapore Vero

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

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!

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.

Fee & Brown

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

Mantanah Thai Cuisine

An authentic Thai restaurant that has an amazing menu, offering good quality meat and vegetarian dishes.

An excellent recently opened coffee shop in South Norwood with a relaxed atmosphere, serving brilliant coffee, cakes and lunch.

Alexandra Nurseries

Fantastic independent café, home and garden centre.

Yeha Noha

Organic food, homemade stuff, including cakes and pastries, meditation evenings, live music at the weekends, an outside terrace and a really funky interior... Love it!!

South Norwood Lake and Grounds

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

  1. About Elmers End

    Elmers End is an area of South East London within the London Borough of Bromley. It borders the London Borough of Croydon. It is located south west of Bromley. here are two leading theories about where the name Elmers End originated. The more romantic of the two is that a famous highwayman, Elmer, was hung at the crossroads, making it 'Elmer’s end'. The less romantic, but possibly more historically accurate, reason is that there were a lot of elm trees in the area. This would, of course, logically result in the location being called Elms End. However the original Victorian railway companies were notorious for both getting place names wrong when naming their stations and for trying to make station names grander than was really justified so this explanation is quite plausible had it not been for the fact that Elmers End as a name clearly predates the coming of the railway by at least ten years.
