    Default Beckenham and surrounds?

    Hi all am staying in Beckenham whilst waiting for number 2 to arrive.
    Just wondering if anyone can tell me much about the suburb?
    Things to do with a toddler, parks etc?
    Also any nice restaurants/takeaways in the area?
    I need to do a spot of shopping too..thanks!

    You have all the shopping you could want only 2 mins down the rd at carousel shopping centre and toys r us is there too , I haven't been down to the parks in bek for years but they were not the best and it can be a bit iffy with some of the ppl who hang around there during the days and evenings, down in Vic park there is some nice playgrounds and the bus service is good too.
    I love Ninnikujip down in Vic park its a japanese fusion style restaurant which is not too bad for price and they have an indoor playground which is great on hot days. Otherwise there is some nice restaurants around the shopping centre. Hope that helps oh and I forgot there is a kids playground inside the shopping centre right next to pumpkin patch and other kids shops and near the food hall.

    Thanks for the info. Have been to the shopping centre before I think - a Westfield?

    Is Beckenham considered a little dodgy with dodgy characters?! I will be staying on my own for a little while...

    Will be on the lookout for a good thai restaurant closeby, not much of a fan of japanese, what a shame!
    Any decent hotel/pub meals either? I need to take dad out for his 50th while we are there too.
