Travel advice for London (public transport and places of interest)
Beckenham has ancient roots dating back to Roman camps and is found in the medieval Domesday Book of 1086. It exploded in growth during the 19th century creating the beautiful Victorian center brimming with restaurants, pubs and cafes. This house was the former gatehouse of the local manor. The manor still exists and is now the center for the local public park and golf course ( (website hidden) "Glendale Golf Beckenham") and large parks behind our property. Easy access to central London. Wimbledon is close by.
Beckenham Junction station is ideally located with just 20 minutes by train to central London's Victoria Station (Buckingham Palace,Westminster,Harrods.). The house is a 5-10 minute walk to the trains and trams which can take you directly to all parts of London. Beckenham itself is located a few kilometers inside London's M25 ring road and the house has unlimited free parking.
