- High Elms Country Park
Shire Lane, Farnborough, Bromley BR6 7JHHere is what someone thought about High Elms Country Park: “Beautiful setting, ideal for a long ramble with the dog through the woods – stunning in autumn with all the leaves and general autumnal colours. Coffee shop was really nice with good food and loved that they provided sausages for the canine visitors who were all hungry after their walks too!Cafe could maybe do with a little modernisation/increased efficiency in their ordering system and there were a number of tables that had not been cleared so had stacks of plates and cups on them for a while as the staff were bringing food out but not clearing any tables while out there.Having said that though, the food is great, there is a lovely large outside seating area that is covered meaning that you can sit out there even in the rain.Will definitely be back to explore areas we didn’t have time for this visit!”
- Christmas Tree Farm
Cudham Road, Downe Village, Bromley BR6 7LFChristmas Tree Farm is great for little children…and some bigger ones too! Here’s one person’s review “Excellent day out with the grandsons. Buckets of food for the animals. Lots of fun for everyone. Very educational and good signage.all around and washing area with toilets. Snacks and drinks available at a reasonable price. Entrance fee not too expensive.”
- Churchill Theatre
High Street, Bromley BR1 1HAThe Churchill Theatre puts on many varied performances, from Christmas Pantomimes to dance shows to musical theatre and everything else in between. Here is just one person’s experience, “Have booked tickets to see Madame Butterfly in January, so when we got an email offering last minute tickets for £10 to a modern take on The Magic Flute we snapped them up. Well worth the money.”They go on to say “It is worth getting on their mailing list as you get some great shows here. Seats are reasonably comfortable a d you can get them for a reasonable rate, even at full price. Prices for drinks and snacks are not cheap, but that is what you expect these days. Good night out and will be going again and keeping an eye out for those bargain nights.”
- The Glades, Bromley
High Street, Bromley BR1 1DNThe Glades is Bromley’s main covered shopping centre with many varied shops from large national stores, such as Marks and Spencers and Next to small, independent “boutique” style shops. This is what one shopper has to say about The Glades, Bromley, “It’s not bad for a shopping centre enough shops to keep the wife and children busy for a while, good sandwich/coffee places and more recently some OK family restaurants if you want a bit more.”They continue by saying, “Parking is really irritating it’s not laid out well! But what is really starting to annoy me is the length of time one of the lifts has been out of action along with all the others seemingly taking a week or twos rest as well. We don’t have any choice to use the escalator when you have a push chair. Get it sorted out!”
- Operation Escape (Room Escape Games in Bromley)
Beechwood Centre, 40 Lower Gravel Road, Bromley, BR2 8GPAccording to their website “Operation Escape is a live-interactive game where you need to solve puzzles and clues. Your team is locked in a room and have one hour to complete the tasks that will set you and your team free. Once you enter the room you will feel like you have stepped back in time.”Here is one escapees thoughts about their experience, “So the location is very low key though it was easy to find and they have done a lot with the space to transform it into a solid escape room experience. We did the WW2 themed room. I am relatively new to escape rooms so this was another fun chance to test the skills that I’ve been picking up through the occasional game here and there. The puzzles were well thought out and it flowed well and were challenging throughout.”They go on to say, “Stephanie was a fantastic host and also very helpful. They also have a second single room that was mentioned, so all the more reason to go back.”
