Beckenham  hotels
Chinese Garage

A small Kent suburban town close to Bromley, Beckenham is located in south east London not far from where the famous Crystal Palace stood before it was destroyed by fire in the 30s.

A leafy suburb not far from Kent’s green and pleasant countryside, it’s full of sports facilities and outdoor activities – Beckenham Place Park has a public golf course and tennis courts, and Croydon Road Recreation Ground has many parades and other events centred around its pretty bandstand, as well as cricket pitches, tennis and basketball courts and a paddling pool and adventure park for kids.

For landscaped beauty, head to Kelsey Park, the jewel in Bromley Borough’s crown with woodland walks and a big lake. Restaurants and bars are numerous in Beckenham centre: try El Molino (251 Beckenham Road, 020 8659 2622) for authentic tapas, Pierluigis (86-90 High Street, 020 8663 0061) for popular Italian cuisine and there’s chains like Ask, Toby Carvery and Pizza Express too.

Built in 1928, the Chinese Garage (petrol/gas station) in Beckenham is designed like a Japanese Pagoda and has been voted the most unusual garage in the UK. It's now used as a car dealership rather than a fuelling station.

The shopping’s not bad with a number of nice independent boutiques; for more of a retail binge head to Bromley or Croydon, probably the major centre for commerce outside of central London, using the tram direct from Beckenham.

As well as a local Odeon (High Street, 0871 2244 007, www.odeon.co.uk), Beckenham Cricket Club (Foxgrove Road, 020 8650 0266, www.beckenhamcricketclub.co.uk) has spectator sports aplenty in picturesque surroundings.

Beckenham Junction (Zone 4) is the main station with fast trains to Victoria, and there’s satellite stations at Kent House, New Beckenham, Clock House and Beckenham Hill.
