Beckenham is often mentioned on the East Dulwich Forum (in terms of ‘should we move there?’) I’ve just put a post up there to plug this forum. So hope this send a few East Dulwichites over.
We moved from Dulwich 15 years ago and found a beautiful quiet little niche with easy access to town by 3 stations, but missed some of the culture of Dulwich – especially for teens, bus access to town not as good as 176 direct into London, but N3 nightbus now comes from Oxford Street! So, great – and Brixton cool live music not far … Shame no decent jazz or live music venues in Beckenham but perhaps BPP mansion might finally provide something – tho hopefully not on Blackheath mega loud annual scale … more Kenwood classy let’s hope … Bromley notably very bad at providing affordable culture to teens unfortunately … Boris said it was the only borough whereby school kids didn’t know that london museums were free and that they were actually allowed to go in!! Quite sad … let’s change that somehow

Moved from ED to Beckenham 3 years ago, so great idea to create this forum.
Hopefully it can grow as I love the ED for sale section.
One thing I would say is that it doesn’t appear on google when you search of Beckenham Forum – Beckenham Town forum comes up, which isn’t as good for layout.
Hello – I reckon this forum will be a great success. So useful to have a forum to find out about the area. As Beckenham is often mentioned on the East Dulwich Forum (in terms of ‘should we move there?’) I’ve just put a post up there to plug this forum. So hope this send a few East Dulwichites over.
The pleasure of living somewhere is enormously increased when you feel part of the community, when you know the people in your town, in your street and next door. We are all so busy these days with work and family and maintaining a home that’s it’s not always easy to get out and meet people face to face. I live in Beckenham and have created this forum in the hope that we can all make connections and share our experiences and knowledge and perhaps make Beckenham a more pleasant place to call home.

Founded in October 2016, the Beckenham Forum is an online meeting place for the residents of Beckenham to share their knowledge and experiences of life in the area.
The Beckenham Forum is not a faceless franchise based in California, we are a local couple living in Village Way, Beckenham.
We created the forum because we believe that being part of a community makes living somewhere much more enjoyable. An online community is something you can use where and when you want to.
