Living in Beckenham
Beckenham is a town within the London borough of Bromley that sits just over 8 miles south of Charing Cross. With a population of around 85,000 it is now very much a busy London suburb but thankfully still includes much of its original Victorian and Georgian architecture. The town has always been known for its leafy characteristics within its built up surroundings but is also seen as an important business hub with eight separate railway stations (Beckenham Junction, Clockhouse, New Beckenham, Ravensbourne, Kent House, Elmers End, Eden Park and Beckenham Hill) allowing the possibility of easy links with central London as well as the rest of Britain. Beckenham has a busy High Street full of restaurants, bars and shops as well many independently run family stores, and also encompasses a number of well performing schools.
The local cinema, which is an Odeon, has six screens and is housed within a grade II listed building. If you are more interested in a night out socialising then any one of Beckenhams many bars and restaurants would be the place to go. From typical English pubs or themed bars and nightclubs there is always something for everyone. The restaurants in Beckenham cater for just about all tastes and with well-known chains such as Pizza Express you always know what to expect. But Beckenham is more than just the high street so its always worth looking around and seeing what you may stumble upon. Beckenham has a vast array of fitness and sport clubs to join including football, rugby, cricket, squash and tennis.
With its own branch of Waitrose and a comprehensive shopping centre in nearby Bromley, Beckenham offers a specialist range of shops, including a sausage shop, a fine wet fish shop, bakeries and the like, and a fine selection of restaurants, wine bars and pubs.
Beckenham offers a number of travel options linking the town with central London, with the fast train services from Beckenham Junction taking a little over 20 minutes to Victoria. As well as the trains from Beckenham Junction, others from New Beckenham serve the Hayes line. Beckenham Hill is on the Catford loop. The Tramlink terminus, which is also located at Beckenham Junction, gives access to East and West Croydon and Wimbledon. There are several excellent bus services providing links with the surrounding area. Gatwick and Heathrow airports are easily reached via the M25 while the M20 gives access to the Channel Ports and the Channel Tunnel.
