Visits by coach

From April to September our visits are by coach and there are two pick-up points with 15 minutes between them.

Beckenham pick-up point: Albemarle Road, alongside St George's Road car park (immediately opposite St George's Church Hall).

Bromley South pick-up point: Masons Hill, bus stop G opposite Cromwell Avenue. Please note that as this pick-up point is a bus stop, the coach cannot wait for latecomers even if they have warned the organiser that they are on the way.

Sale of Tickets for Visits

  1. Tickets will be on sale after 7pm at the Wednesday evening meeting specified in our members' newsletter and the following Thursday afternoon meeting (where appropriate). Details are clearly stated on the visit booking form supplied with our Newsletter. Visit slips must be filled in before booking and payment by cheque payable to NT B&B Centre is preferred.
  2. If you are unable to come to a meeting, you can, before that meeting, send your form, cheque and SAE for reply to the organiser, and it will be dealt with immediately after the first sale.
  3. If you later find that you wish to join the visit, you should contact the organiser to see if places are still available.
  4. If, after the first two sellings, there are still places available, the visit will be open to any friends who would like to come.
  5. If you cannot come please let the organiser know, in case there is a waiting list. If there is not, we regret that we cannot refund your money.
  6. Depending on fuel costs there may be a small supplement to pay on the day for some coach visits.
  7. Members and guests who participate in visits do so at their own risk and the Beckenham & Bromley Centre cannot accept any liability.
  8. On visits by coach please use your seat belt when travelling as, in the unlikely event of an accident, insurance companies will not pay out if the seat belt is not being used.
