    It's Greater Croydon, isn't it?

    Not really it is far enough away from Croydon to have it's own identity.

    After nearly 6 months in the borough I've yet to go east of Beckenham. :hmm: Is there any good reason to go into Bromley Town?

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    I used to go to Elmers End a lot - 20 odd years ago, that's about all I know of the area

    There's a big shopping centre.

    Not as big as Croydon's though :D

    Size isn't everything!

    It does have a lot of shops, a few decent pubs and restaurants, a cinema and two theatres.

    Didnt know it had two theatres...churchill and? Spookily enough checked whats coming up at churchill today, as nothing grabbing me at greenwich, broadway or brockley jack...
    Quite like bromley for quick shopping, rarely mobbed and in good weather i like sitting in the gardeny bit behind the churchill with a carry out from greggs..getting down with the squirrels.
    Still miss the days you could get a 47bus to farnborough and try and avoid being flashed at in high elms park...

    I used to like the Tomfoolery on the High St (fabulous smoking area if you like that sort of thing) but think it may have changed hands.

    The George on Beckenham High Street is nice enough - pleasant old skool local pub.

    Bromley Little Theatre in Bromley North.

    The Tomfoolery is now the Barrel and Horn, a great pub with loads of decent craft beers. A few doors down is the Partridge, A Fullers pub which is good for watching football, but not too lairy.

    Bromley South has a lack of decent pubs, the Bricklayers Arms on Masons Hill is the nearest good one, an old-school Shepherd Neame boozer.

    Try the 358, you might get flashed on the bus these days (if you're lucky) !

    Chatterton Village - any comments? Might be moving there...

    Good little set of shops on Chatterton Road, the Co-op, a good cafe, bakers, is the model shop still there? Frequent buses to Bromley, quiet if you're not on Bromley common itself. Not bad at all.
